Last Exit In New Jersey by C.E Grundler - My Summer Reading

Back in middle school I remember absolutely dreading summer reading assignments. That dread slowly subsided as some of my friends and even myself grew to discover that it's actually enjoyable to read voluntarily. Of course I'm being facetious, but I do know a lot of people who don't read at all. Even my best friend would prefer not to read The Sexy Armpit because reading is just too much of a task. Part of me agrees with him, but only in the sense that there are so many other enticing diversions out there that don't take as long.

It's super quick to turn on Netflix and start watching a movie, a perfect past time for the lazy man. Not to say you are lazy because you watch Netflix, but there's definitely a possibility that you are lazy if you hate to read and love watching Netflix. For me, reading is the last chance in this world to conjure up my own visuals in my head. If you think a character in a book looks a certain way, then that's the character. Of course you might be in for some major disappointment when filmmakers cast Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattison in the movie version.

In the end, none of this hinders me from reading. Whether it's a comic book, a pop culture manifesto, or a thriller, I do still read and I don't even own a Kindle! Imagine that?!?! Reading without an electronic device, what will they think of next? Which brings me to my summer reading.

Even though I'm in the early stages of it, I'm already hooked on Last Exit In New Jersey, a thriller by C.E Grundler. C.E is not only a superb author, but she also recently discovered The Sexy Armpit and graces us with her presence often! Last Exit in New Jersey is the type of book that will keep you turning the page to see what happens next. Click on the link below to purchase at a reasonable price:

Here I am, minding my own business, surfing when I should be writing, and I peak into the Armpit to see what's cooking... and see Last Exit! Too cool! Thanks, Jay!

I used to be an avid reader but over the past 5 or 6 years it has been so hard for me to focus on anything more than magazine articles. The book that you mentioned does sound good and I will be adding it to my list of books that I hope to be able to read someday.
