Reading . . . AGAIN!

Anyone remember this layout? For those who don't, it's all about how ever since the boys were born I haven't been able to concentrate on a book, let alone finish one. Reading was one of my passions and the traumatic experience we went through just took that passion right out of me.
Well, I'm not sure what happened, but a few days ago I dug out one of my favorite books that's an easy read. And guess what? I'm still actually sticking with it! I wouldn't say I've become some die hard bookworm, but hey it's a start! I remember people commenting on this layout and saying "save your books," you will want to read again. I didn't believe them. But I'm so glad that I saved my favorites because it was nice to just pick one up and start reading again.

I joined a book club because I wanted to at least read one book a month. I used to read one a week...now I'm usually cramming for book club the week before. NOt good, LOL. I Love to read though. What are you reading?

I can totally relate. I have remained in my book a month club since Spencer, but my "to read" stack is a heck of a lot bigger than my "already read" stack nowdays!

I think it is just plain having kids that takes the joy out of reading. I used to read all the time now I am so tired I seldom ever read. I really miss it, and am contemplating get rid of my books too.
