“Cram your head with characters and stories. Abuse your library privileges. Never stop looking at the world, and never stop reading to find out what sense other people have made of it. If people give you a hard time and tell you to get your nose out of a book, tell them you’re working. Tell them it’s research. Tell them to pipe down and leave you alone.”—
i read four books this weekend: The Secret History by Donna Tartt (all of Friday); Roomies by Sara Zarr and Tara Altebrando (Saturday morning); We Were Liars (11pm-2pm Saturday/Sunday); and Just One Day by Gayle Forman (Sunday). It was the best weekend ever. And technically, I was working the entire time.
