There’s nothing better than getting lost in a good book.

I’d like to say most of my reading is done while curled up on the couch with a blanket and a mug of tea, but in reality, it’s on my commute to and from work, helping me stay awake while the busy train sways back and forth.

As we head into the holidays, I’m excited to have a chance relax and dig into the books patiently waiting for me on my shelf.
