A good book...

There are a few things I really enjoy in my little world that are all for me.  I love to sew, I love to embroider, I love to do my blog, I love to bake, and I love a good book.
I don't devote a lot of time to reading...it's mostly at night when I am tired and ready to go to bed.  I usually read for those few minutes before I fall asleep.  Some nights that takes quite a while and some nights I get only about 5 pages read before my eyes are closing.  I seem to fall victim to the tv at night.  I have only a hand full of shows that I really enjoy watching but I can usually find something interesting with all the channels that we have.  Once kiddos are off to bed, I should always just go to my book and start reading but a lot of times I turn on that TV and I am sucked in for at least a couple hours and then too tired to read anything.


I get my books at the library.  I love going to the library and coming home with a bag full of books!

Ohh you seam to like some of the same books I do so I'll have to read a few of the authors I've never heard of before. I'm currently reading Little Women on my NOOK (it was a free book and I can read it while nursing) and Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett.

Pillars of Earth is GREAT. I've read.. a LOT of books. Right now I'm re-reading the Mists of Avalon series by Marion Zimmer Bradley. My favorite author is Wilbur Smith for River God. Good stuff.
