I love to read. Like love LOVE. I always have. I know I come by it honestly. I can remember curling up on the couch next to my Dad when he would be reading when I was small. He always had something he was reading. My Mom loves to read too and she read to me all the time when I was little. And from as far back as I can remember I’ve always loved to read.
Since Baby Girl was born I haven’t been able to give into the habit as much as I like. One because it is a total time suck for me and two because it can end up costing a lot of money. I know I should go to the library, but I just never have time.
For Christmas David got me my favorite gift of all time:
I love it like a child. Since I opened it I’ve downloaded and read eight books. (And as an aside, I have two paperback books that I’m currently reading and at least two waiting in the wings to be read.) I’m not even sure how I’ve managed to read that many books. I pick up my new baby and time just fades away. It is just me and her.
I’m trying to control myself and not download any more books for awhile. It can get really, really expensive. But one of the things I love about the Nook Color (at least I think I’ll love it) is that it has a “Lend Me” feature which allows you to friend other users and “borrow” books that they have downloaded. The only problem is that I don’t know anyone else with a Nook. If you have one and would like to friend me (and know how to do it), let me know. I promise I’ll love you forever.
And if you don’t have a Nook and just know of a really great book I should read let me know that too.
P.S. Last night when I proofread this I had about a zillion typos. I must be really tired. So if I missed any please excuse my poor grammar and bad spelling. Thank you.
