Thoughts on cleanses:

The underlying premise of a cleanse, be it a juice cleanse or reading cleanse, is to break from habit and reinvigorate or recharge yourself. That being said, I feel more exhausted than revitalized after pummeling through these novels, which, I suppose, is good. It’s made me appreciate the long weeks and months I spent with just one book at a time, when I’d have winded conversations with texts and dead poets. And it’s especially nice to grow old with something—a copy of Through the Looking-Glass sits on my shelf as a testament to that.
