Does anyone ever read a book and try to absorb every single word because it’s so good and you want to remember everything about it forever?

Or is it just me?

On a related note, I’m reading Love Warrior by Glennon Doyle Melton.

Her memoir is honest, authentic, vulnerable and raw (I realize those might all mean the same thing). Glennon is a compelling writer and a fiercely brave truth teller. Love Warrior is, at times, so painfully honest it makes me squirm. But most of the time, Glennon’s words make me feel seen. And although I’ve never spoken to her, she makes me feel heard. She turned to an eating disorder very early in life because she felt every nuance of life acutely and didn’t know how to handle the overwhelming impact. Me too, Glennon, me too.
