    Getting Back Into It

    Way back when, I was a voracious reader. Then I got married and had children. My personal reading habits fell to the wayside. As my children have grown, I'm slowly finding my way back into the joy of reading. The best part is having new technology at my fingertips. Instead of...

    All the Time...

    I read all the time. I Love cuddling up in bed, with a good book, and reading it, Sometimes when I log off of Ep, I don't really want to do anything, so I just reach over to my bookshelf, and grab a book to read. I Love to read, and tend to do a lot of it =)

    Wicked: The Life And Times Of The Wicked Witch Of The West

    This book by Gregory Maguire was totally engrossing. I rarely read fantasy but I'm glad I made this exception. It is the adult version of the Wizard of Oz told from the perspective of a minor character.  It tells the story of a hideous green child born to normal parents, her...

    When I Get Time

    It's hard to find time to read with things like TV and the internet to distract me, but I like to do it, so I try to make a little time to read each day, maybe just half an hour here or there. It's fun, and it helps me keep my spelling and vocabulary reasonable.

    I'll Read Anything

    I read everything from books on ancient China to comic books.  I read every night before I go to bed.  I dislike movies based on books because it destroys my perception on every character.  It's very disheartening.
