I've always loved reading. When I read a good book it's like my mind creates a movie just for me to watch. I will actually see the characters in the book come to life in my mind.. hopefully that doesn't make me sound too nutty. :)
One of my favorite writers is Nicholas Sparks... because I'm a girl. But once I had kids and found my time for reading anything other than Curious George books very limited I suddenly found his books very draining to read. They were all so sappy and predictable, so I gave up on him and moved on to other things.
When I saw the movie Dear John is coming out based on one of his books I decided to give him a go again and read the book before seeing the movie. I'm so glad I did! I'll be honest it took me over a week to get through the first 20 pages and I almost took the book back to the library to find something else on my list but once I got into it I couldn't put it down, literally. This morning I woke up before the kids did so I could try and finish reading the last 100 pages, sadly they heard me and quickly got up... but I kept on reading. I read while making their breakfast, while getting them dressed, and even while changing diapers. I highly recommend it!
What are some good books you've read lately?? I'm always looking for a good read!
