today i am thankful for any chance to get caught up in a good book! so, i really like to read. i almost feel overwhelmed by all of the wonderful books in the world that i haven't gotten around to yet as if there is some big english test i am going to take at the end of my life and if i miss one question i will have missed out on some great life lesson or wonderful story.
i have always loved to read and write too. maybe someday i will get serious about writing, but for now i continue to be serious about reading when i can.
i also think that you set a really great example for your kids when they see you reading. bubba watches me read every chance i get and he will stop what he is doing and go grab a book and start reading quietly or aloud to himself for a really long time. he really seems to enjoy it and few things could make me happier since reading is such a key and important part in anyone's education.
i am a part of a little blog reading group where we sometimes talk about what we are reading, sometimes talk about other delightful or hilarious everyday things, and sometimes we are just too busy. any interaction with those honestlyonto girls is a treat for me.
also, my friend echo started a little monthly book group that has an accompanying blog as well. this month is my month to choose the novel and have the group over. i chose, to kill a mockingbird. i have started reading and i think one or two others have too and i am loving it! many of us are re-reading and some for the first time. whether you too are a lover of books, or you are not much of a reader- i wanted to invite you to pick up a copy- get through the first couple of pages (that's what i have to do with most books) and then let yourself get into this familiar and wonderful novel. but you dont have to take my word for it...
oh, i know i am supposed to end on that reading rainbow exit line, but for those in the area, if you do end up reading it feel free to join our little movie night, hang-out at the end of the month at my house. email me at stephaniexrobertson(at)gmail(dot)com for details! happy reading!
