I was an avid reader at a very young age. I would often stay up all night, way past bedtime and binge read books – young adult series, the classics – Steinbeck was an early favorite. But as I worked more and more in tech and editorial roles, writing and editing others work all day, the last thing I wanted to do was read more at night.
Recently, I’ve gotten more into reading again for fun, though I really do tend to prefer non-fiction, behind the scenes drama of real-life industries and how TV and Internet empires are formed, with all the juicy bits, inside looks about their ascension and/or failures.
Don’t get me wrong, I also like an escapist novel from time to time, and light, fun reading apropos for the beach, pool or hammock relaxing. Here are some of my recent favorites.
