I used to read many more books than I do now-a-days. However, before I used to have nothing but time, seeing as, it was just me and TJ and most of the time we worked opposite shifts so we were usually home alone throughout the week. Anyway. I have all these books downstairs. A few that I haven’t read yet, and others that I read more than 6 years ago and I would like to read again. So this past weekend we went down to Iowa. I thought this would be a good time to read a book, in the car. I always feel so confined in the car and need something to do, and feel like I really should make better use of my time. So I grabbed one of my books that I haven’t read for a few years to read again. It was great! I was almost done with it in the 2 1/2 hours down to Iowa, and didn’t know what I was going to do on the way back up, but my Mother-in-law gave me another book to read and I started that one on the way home on Sunday and just finished it on Tuesday afternoon.
Reading a fiction book is like watching a movie for me. How many of you start a movie and then just watch a little bit and watch a little bit more the next day and the day after that?!? Not me! So it’s hard for me to put a book down. ;) But if I’m going to continue reading books right now I think I’m going to have to limit myself and start a timer or something. Like today, time got away from me....I finished the book, but really had other things I should have been doing instead. And then my mom showed up ready for me to take her to the airport and I was not feeling prepared because there were a few more things I had to do before I drove her up there. All because I had to finish my book. Oh well. It will still be worth it to be back into reading again. I realize how much I’ve missed it now.

I prefer reading fiction and getting into the story a little bit, but I do still like reading informational, helpful books too. I think for the next book, I’m going to go back to a John Grisham book. If you have an author that you love, feel free to let me know and I’ll give it a try. :)

We have like 5 John Grisham books that I could have given to you too. When I was going back to see how many books we had I just realized I never gave you any of our puzzles when you were here. Course now it sounds like you're into reading. If you want, I can try to remember to bring them up for Anthony's birthday.
