Books

So I guess it is time for the next installment of "Fight Mommy Brain". So here I go! BOOKS I LOVE to read. I am not quite the reader some of my friends are (Allison, this means you!) but I get in a "groove" of wanting to read all the time. I stay up late trying to finish a book so I can start a new one the next day (Twilight series), I almost ignore my family, with wanting to expand my mind and soak up the knowledge the book has to offer. Unfortunately, I haven't read too many books recently that have a ton of knowledge to offer! I just started reading The Other Boleyn Girl, and since it is based on some historical fact....I am trying to take it slow. I would really like to finish it, and that might happen this weekend, when the kids are spending quality time at the Grandparents house! I read Can You Keep a Secret in less than 24 hours. It doesn't hurt that I have read it before, but it was such a quick read, and a great way to get away from life for a little while. I would like to say that I have a favorite book, one that I always go back to, one that is looking a bit ragged and needs to be replacedm but I don't think I do. Do any of you have a tried and true favorite book? Have you read any great books lately? (Please keep the list to a minimum Allison, I think blogger has a word cap on comments!) ;)

I have to say the only real book - well books - that I have any real passion for are the Harry Potter books. It's like my kids can't grow up fast enough so I can read the books to them. I really look forward to sharing those books with them.

And, of course, I went through a very long dry spell of NOT reading, but Edward Cullen brought me back! Sigh....

Ok I'll try to keep it short. I just love to read and now that the kids are older I feel like I have a little bit more time to read. So I try to read as much as I can. I did have a favorite book from a long time ago called Quest for a Maid, by Frances Mary Hendry. It is a young reader book, but I have read it so often that it has tape holding the cover on. I really enjoy fantasy books taht take you away from everyday life and this one is like that.
