I promise, reading is fun. Here's a list of some interesting books and articles I'm reading for various grad school courses, some biographies I'm currently obsessing over, and another list of gripping fiction & non-fiction titles that you may potentially enjoy. However, some of the fiction that's listed are, let's face it, total beach reads. But I wouldn't have them any other way. Meg Cabot, if you ever read this, can I have your autograph?
