As a child I loved reading. My sister and I had a shelf full of books in our bedroom and I remember picking out piles of books to read. In my scrapbook my mom put together for me, there is an award from 2nd grade where I read over 300 books.
My love of reading soon lead to a love of writing. If I had a blank notebook I just had to fill it up with stories. In I believe third grade a story I wrote, The Witch Who Lost her Broom, won a school award. In high school I wrote a short play that the Y0ung Women of my church acted out during an Evening in Excellence. I of course was the star of my own play- hey why not, I wrote it.
I have always loved a good book.
But I don't read anymore- or at least I shouldn't.
A few days ago while I was waiting in the pick-up line to get Lucas I opened up my iPad and began reading Emma- one of the many free iBooks available. And what have I done the last few days? Nothing but read Emma.
You see, when I begin a good book and get hooked- well you might as well not bother trying to talk to me until I am done. When I read the Hunger Game series, I couldn't even put the book down while unloading the dishwasher. When I finished, Eric proclaimed- we got mom back!
So it is probably best if you not recommend any books to me as my family's health may depend upon it. Luckily I finished Emma- so I can now spend the day reading all of your blogs that I have gotten behind on.....
hmmmm.... is that much better?
Oh well. Read any good books lately?
