What is ‘ich lese’?



This blog was inspired by the 2016 POPSUGAR reading challenge but will continue to be a place for me to talk about books I read and impressions I gather through literature. In 2017, I am hoping to challenge myself with more books and more writing. I hope you’ll join me on this journey. 


I finally finished my Ph.D., which really prevented me from reading anything but science papers. I am only complaining because I missed reading fiction so much, not because I mind reading science papers. So this year, I decided to do the POPSUGAR reading challenge, along with some friends who are also avid readers (see Sarah’s blog or Elise’s blog). I’ve read 10 books so far, and thought to myself instead of just summarizing my impressions on Goodreads, I should probably blog about it – maybe improve my writing skills along the way. So here they are, my humble beginnings of my 2016 reading blog. I am obviously continuing to read books, so please bear with me as I catch up on summarizing all the things.
