You know, as an English major at college I used to read five books a week then write a paper to go with each (five days, five books, five papers) and then on the weekend you know what I did? Read. For fun. I'm surprised my eyes are still secure in my head. Of course, back then I didn't knit - but I did paint (oh, to paint again!) nearly every day. These days I'm lucky to get through a page - a paragraph - before something else demands my attention (whether it's children, housework, writing or knitting). That doesn't stop me from borrowing (and renewing and re-renewing) books from the library, or occasionally buying them from Powells, thus the teetering stacks of books all around the house. There are just so many tempting books out there; but I'll continue to sneak a paragraph or a page or a chapter when I can...happily not all my reading is interrupted though - right now a small someone wants to read "Monsters Don't Eat Broccoli" again...what are you reading this summer?
