I was trying to figure out why I haven't read anything else and I'm not really sure why. It's not for a lack of books on my nook, kindle or ibooks apps. I have a ton of books on those ipads. Not to mention all of the actual hardcopy books I have here at the house. I enjoyed the books I read, but I think sleep ruled out over reading at night and since Miranda still isn't sleeping through the night, sleep is very important! And probably if I'm really honest - games on my ipad are easier to do before bed and don't require as much concentration.
I finally checked out some books a couple of weeks ago at the library to see if that would boost my reading interest. Having a deadline to return the books keeps me from ignoring them and I have actually read several times this past week, so I guess its working. I've read one of the three I borrowed and have 4 weeks (with renewal next week) to read the other two.
I shall be near to you is about a woman who enlists in the Union Army to be with her husband during the civil war. Finished it this morning - good book.
My goal is to read another 25 books this year, so after I finish the 3 library books I will have 14 left for the year. Maybe if I make a list, then that might be easier than trying to figure out what to read late and night and choosing to play on the iPad instead. Here it goes - my list for the remainder of the year...
I guess I better get reading! Oh wait, I have 3 girls to take care of - maybe tonight I can read! ;)
