Day 3: Reading For Fun


I’m about three years late in getting around to reading this one, but today I finally picked up JK Rowling’s novel The Casual Vacancy.  It has been on my shelf since 2012, but I haven’t had a chance to pick it up, and I suppose, in some ways, I have been putting off reading it for fear that it would not live up to my beloved Harry Potter.  I’m hooked.  It has been a while since I read something just for fun.  I read all the time, and reading for my thesis is fun in some respects; I love all the nonfiction I read, but when I read for my thesis, I read with a much more critical eye.  I’m less concerned about getting absorbed by the story than with figuring out how the story is working on a technical level.  That is going to change this weekend – I’m 50 pages into The Casual Vacancy and completely hooked.  Here’s to always making time to read for fun!
