I love reading books - when I have the time, that is. But when do I, a working mom of 3, ever have the time? NEVER! I can’t remember the last book that I read – let alone enjoyed and finished. It has been a really loooonnnng time!
Well, last Wednesday we went camping with April, Rick, Kaulana, Michelle and baby Maddy for the 4th of July holiday. Rick had purchased a book and brought it with him (presumably so he could read it – he he – sorry Rick!).
On Thursday morning, almost everyone went 4-wheeling but I stayed at the trailer with a kiddo who didn’t want to go. I spotted Rick’s book and thought “hmm, I will just read a few pages and see if it is any good”. The book had vampires in it which I really don’t like because I don’t do scary, evil, monstery type of books but I was hooked! It is more about a love story (I’m a romantic at heart!) and not evil although there was definitely some action in it. The book was Twilight and was approx. 550-600 pages. I finished it Friday night. Then Saturday we went into town to get some supplies at Target. I may or may not have purchased the sequel New Moon (another approx. 600 page book) and devoured it by Sunday night. It is safe to say that I was “addicted”.
I don’t know if it is because I haven’t read anything for a long time so I just went crazy reading or if it was because they are really good books, which I think they are, but either way, I thoroughly enjoyed them. I am now anxiously waiting for the 3rd book to come out in August in paperback so I can read that one too.
So if you have any really good books that you have just loved, let me know. I think I may have a new hobby developing!
So the question now becomes: will I be able to wait til August when the paperback comes out or will I cave and buy the hardcover?
