    Been a While

    Totally! I Love That Though.

    Except on work nights!!!  But that's how great the power of a good book is.   Here's a tip:  When I am suffering the misery of a break up and I can't stop thinking about my ex, I find that getting into a good book works so well to take my mind off of "him...

    All I Can Think About Is Getting Back To My Book

    I love to read and I always need to have a book with me. I find that when I am reading, and have to be pulled away from my latest book, I will think about it until I get back to it. I am always a little disappointed when I finish a good book because I get so into it and do not...
