What Am I Reading?
What a perfect way to fill you in on my current reads. It's as if Mel[issa - but I totally never call her that] read my mind when she asked us to Capture the Everyday today and share what book we're reading now.
I used to be a one-book woman. I could never imagine having more than one bookmark actively saving my place at a time. I tore through my reads viciously. On the bus, the train, my lunch hour. And then I relocated to North Carolina, and read and read and read. And then, then ... let me introduce you to my little time suck ... oh, wait, you know her already. She's four years old, about yay high. Yeah, that's the one.
And I realized I would never be able to read a book from start to finish in one sitting again. So I have books everywhere. In my bedroom. My bathroom (what? That's not TMI, don't tell me you don't do it, too. It's the only place a mom gets any peace, IF then!). Upstairs. Downstairs. I read whenever I can steal a few minutes.
So today you'll get a glimpse of what I am currently reading. I started the yummy-looking title with a cake on the cover night before last and am actually tearing through it. It's so good. Look for a review sometime soon. And I'm reading the Amy Tan one to actually write a review, and I really like it, but this cake one is for my April book club, and I've been so wrapped up in reviewing books I've slacked on book club choices. But this was my suggestion, and I plan on attending book club, so, well, so there!
The other two I've started and am making my way through. It'll take some time, but I'll get there. And if you want to know more about me and my relationship with books you can check me out on Goodreads.
Or you can check my Reading with Redneck tab at the top of this page. It's got reviews I've done and lists of books and all that fun stuff. I'm a book addict, I admit it. If there was a book readers anonymous I'd go and I'd talk about it with pride.
So, if you want to link up with Mel today, go on, do it! You may even find some great books to read. Happy reading! Or good luck trying to.
