Lately, I've progressively noticed that I kind of need to advance my writing skills and my overall diction. Okay, it's not like I'm going to suddenly start using words like vitriolic or recalcitrant in my daily vocabulary when I'm talking to friends (not that there's anything wrong about that!). I guess the root if it is the fact that the only time I ever read is if it's off of OmgYahoo articles, my guilty addiction, or when skimming through magazine articles. So to rekindle my inner book nerdiness, I spent hours looking for books to buy at Americana's Barnes and Noble and GoodReads.
[ Here are some books that I decided to buy for $1-7 each w/out shipping on Amazon!
I promise to provide reviews in case any of you guys would like to read any of them in the future (: ]
