I love to read, maybe because I am not good at it. Okay, let me rephrase that I am a good reader, but a slow reader. Over the years I have tried to become a speed reader, I even read a book about it...that was a joke. I have come to terms that being a good reader takes practice and evolves over time. I enjoy reading books, magazines, blogs,etc.
In my opinion "Reading is Sexy"!! The trick to reading, is to read about what interests you. So I stared with steamy romance (don't judge), moved on to contemporary novels, self help books, spiritual and recently became obsessed with fashion/style/decor books. I also collect cook/cocktail books...I need another cookbook like I need another hole in my head.
I think it is important to make it a habit to read daily. During the summer months I tend to read more and am always looking for a great summer read. I take my kids to book stores and libraries to find books that will hold their interest. I also have a mandatory TV shut down daily. This is where my children and I sit and read for at lest an hour...if they don't want to read a book, they can flip through a magazine, but they have to sit and at least fake it.
I am looking for a great summer read...any suggestions???
