I am a reader...always have been, probably always will be. I have always had a voracious appetite for books...and I don't discriminate between genres. I'll read most anything. Fiction or non-fiction...comedy, horror, mystery, self-help, spiritual, how-to's, autobiographies...you name it, I'll probably read it. Unfortunately, in the past decade, I haven't had the time to read for hours like I used to. Or maybe it's that I feel guilty for sitting down long enough to read. Hey, I'm just being honest here! But whatever the reason, to feed my need for books, I've become more hooked on audio books since I'm in the car so much. It's not always the same experience as snuggling up in bed or on the couch with your book du jour, but hey, it doesn't give me any eye strain! And besides that, it's really about all I have time for right now, unless I want to give up blogging, FB, and photography. So yeah, audiobooks are a good thing.
When Kendall was on Spring Break, I had to take her to work with my one day because I only had one client and didn't see the need to arrange child care for her for one hour when she could bring her DS and sit down in Danny's salon while I saw my client. Danny spoils her rotten, so she was all too happy to comply. Afterward, we walked over to the library, where she wanted to pick up the third Harry Potter book. Well, they didn't have it in. Bummer. So after much looking around, she decided on a big book called "Here Be Monsters". As she read the inside cover, she was laughing and looking quite intrigued. Little did I know....She read the entire way home. She read that whole evening. And the next day at lunch, she walked up to me in the kitchen and handed me the book. "I'm finished", was all she said. That simple.
I said, "You read the whole thing? No skipping pages? No reading ahead?"
"No! Why would you ask that? Don't you believe me? If I skipped pages, I'd miss stuff!"
How true...my thoughts exactly! I guess I just wasn't prepared for her to read so voraciously already. But really, I don't know why I'm surprised...
