My name is Kathleen (or Kat or Kathy, whatever you like). I'm a freshman and double-majoring in information technology and mass communications (though which communications route I'm unsure of).
I love to read as much as I can. It makes me feel like I'm helping my brain rather than shrinking it with TV. I like to read because it makes me see the world in different ways, and I want to be able to understand my surroundings as much as I can.
I have a big problem though--I have a short attention span! Many times I'll be completely captivated by a book and halfway through it I just stop and start reading another one! Hopefully this club will help me with that.
I don't have one favorite book. Everytime I read a new one, it becomes my fravorite. Some of the ones I enjoyed the most, though, are Catcher in the Rye, Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Fountainhead (half of it :( ) and the Mysterious Stranger.
Right now I'm reading Love at Goon Park and A Seperate Peace.
I like to own every book I read, but with Amazon, I get all my books for a buck and that's great! :D
I also like to write and am hoping to become part of the Beacon staff. 'Tis all. Bye!
