When I was little I was the biggest bookworm, major emphasis on bookworm. I lived and breathed literature like no other, finishing books I would borrow from my elementary library as I got off the school bus or reading while eating and reading while following my momma around stores as she shopped. As I got older my reading dwindled down, as the technology era seized the hearts of every child (including me). Once you get to college it's like, who even reads books? Let alone the books that were assigned in class, hello spark notes exists. But I told myself once summer starts I'm going to take the time to read a really good book. And not through an e-book, I can't do e-books, I'm already tired of always looking at my computer screen and phone, so paper-back it is! I've heard about The Alchemist in so many places, whether through mentions by professionals or word of mouth - how could you not hear about it? I always heard such great things about how it has been inspiring and being inspired is one of my favorite feelings ever. So I'm extremely excited to be in the process of reading this book.

It's such a shame we don't read as much when we get older. I've tried reading the Alchemist in the past, but have never been able to get into it, maybe I was too young. Might pick it up again, thanks for the inspiration!
