I am a hardcore book worm as you probably have figured out by now. My reading time took a huge hit with Evan's birth but even then I still read some keeping to short stories so that I could put it down and still be able to follow the plot of the story I was reading. When I have a baby in the house I also keep to light reading, avoiding heavy tomes like the Lord of The Rings series. I did not even have a library card for many years, instead I made use of the used book store at the library. I knew that if I did not own the book I would be paying a ton of money in over due fines.
Now that I have a toddler and a preschooler I am able to read a whole lot more. It helps that I am a super fast reader, something that I never consciously taught myself to do. I spent hours in my room as a teenager lost in reading, so I guess it is no surprise that I can tear through a book super fast. I am also watching a lot less TV now that we have cut the cable leaving me with a ton more reading time in the evening. I guess I make it more of a priority now that the kids are not quite as needy since it is something that I enjoy so much.
I am feeling a lot more chipper about my reading stack now. My library has a special spot out in the front where newly released books are. They have a special seven day check out time but it is worth it to be able to find fresh new reading. I have not had too many over due fees from them. That mostly happens when I try and take out more than two of the seven day books at a time. While I was at the library yesterday I found another addition to an ongoing series that I have been following. This one is not disappointing at all, in fact I think that I am going to ditch you all right now so that I can read some more of it.
