Sometimes when I get lost in the hustle and bustle of working, prepping for work, making sure Jackson is ready for school, making sure he has eaten, etc….. I forget how much I enjoy books… It is like rediscovering an old love affair over and again. And…every time I start reading, I wonder why I stopped.
Something is seriously wrong with my priorities when I go for months at a time without reading for pleasure. So, although it is July, I am making a “New Year’s Resolution.” I feel this is appropriate since it is, in fact, the end of one school year and the beginning of the next. My resolution is to continue reading for pleasure, even if only a few pages a day rather than a few hundred pages.
I have recently discovered Jane Green, and I have enjoyed the way she weaves a story. She is magnificent for just getting lost in a book. Memoirs have intrigued me for some time, so I have read several memoirs this summer as well. If you know of a good memoir, let me know. I certainly would enjoy a new one. I have been caught up in fiction for the past week or so, and I am ready for a good memoir.
Hope everyone is enjoying a wonderful summer, and I hope you are all getting lost in the magical world of books.
