I'm a mom and work full-time. How I find time to read I'm not sure but I do. I have been reading ever since I can remember. I always find that if I'm not reading something, I feel empty. I recently bought an eReader so that I can ALWAYS have my library with me :-) Since I have been introduced to a number of different books since I bought my eReader, I thought it made sense to start a blog to share not only my love for reading with others, but also new and interesting reading material.
I fell asleep before the 24th hour last night. I think I had 3 hours left and couldn't hold out any longer. I had fun reading and got quite a bit done. I read 3.5 books, a total of 963 pages in a total of 14.5 hours, which is more than I did last year. Although I had quite a few distractions, I'm glad I was able to get all that reading done.
These last couple of hours were painful. The book I was reading has been the longest shortest book I've ever read. I know that sounds weird but it was the shortest book I picked today and the hardest to read. That happens I guess.
Statistics: Book Read: The Name of this Book is Secret by Pseudonym Bosch Format: Nook # of Pages: 189 Length of time: 3 hrs
Up Next: I think I'm going to start reading a book in the Horror genre in light of it being Halloween soon.
I'm reading the shortest book I've chosen so far and it seems it's the hardest for me to get through. This book got pretty good reviews on bn.com but I'm just not getting into it at all. I'm wondering if I should finish it since I'm 1/4 of the way in already.
Wow, I don't think I've ever read to books in a matter of 8 - 10 hours before. I did lose some stream earlier in the late morning, early afternoon and took a 2 hour nap. Once I woke up, I went full speed ahead though. I think I finished my second book in about 5 hours give or take. I'm going to try something on the lighter side for my third book.
Statistics: Book Read: Rippler by Cidney Swanson Format Read: Nook # of Pages: 434 Length of time: approximately 5 hours.
Next book to read: The Name of This Book is a Secret by Pseudonym Bosch
This is my first update of the morning. I'm not sure how many books I will be able to complete within the 24 hours but I'm trying for at least one more, maybe two. I'm juggling a busy day today and trying to multi-task. I must thank my husband for coffee and breakfast this morning. He was supposed to take my 5-year old camping but he wasn't sure the weatherman was right about a nice weekend, so he promised to keep him super busy so that I can read.
So for my first update here are the statistics.
Book Read: Graveminder by Melissa Marr
Book Format: Nook
# of Pages: 288
Length of time: 4 hours
So, I signed up for Dewey's Read-a-thon again this year. I think I may be half crazy. I haven't had a good night's sleep in over a month and I purposely decide to try to stay up for 24 hours reading...ha ha. At any rate, it's for the greater good :-). I'm not going to post which books I have decided to try to read this year. Well, because I haven't really decided. I'm a bit slow on the uptake this year...LOL. But I'm going to try to improve from last year and again have fun doing it :-)

Cooking is my favorite hobby. I learned to cook when I was a little girl by watching my mom and grandma cook family dinners. When I went to college, my roommates and I would have dinner parties at our apartment and I would do all of the cooking. When I got married, my husband gained 25 pounds and he blamed it on my cooking. I love watching Food Network to learn new recipes. We recently got satellite internet from http://www.wildbluedeals.com/satellite-internet/california/s/, so I recently started looking up recipes online. I have a large cookbook of recipes I have tried and liked. I can honestly say that there are only a handful of recipes that I disliked over the years. My favorite thing to cook is dessert. I guess you could say that baking is my forte. Whenever we got to a family event where we have to bring something, I am always asked to bring dessert. I really like making cupcakes and it is a dream of mine to open up a bakery, but for now I will continue to cook for my family.
