The More That You Read…

When I was young, I loved to read.  Then I really don’t know what happened…there was about a 15 year gap in there (dating, marriage, babies, etc) when I didn’t read at all (except for new mom ‘How to” books!).  Then one day I decided to check out this book that everyone had been talking about (Twilight).   And that reignited my love of reading.  That was approximately 4 years ago, and since then I have been going through books like a crazy woman!  It’s amazing what can happen when you read a good book…you get transported to another time, another place, another life.  It’s magical.  I love getting lost in a book (sometimes I don’t want to come back home!).  So, when I saw the Dr. Seuss quote on Pinterest (here), I knew I wanted it in my ‘school room’.  We don’t technically have a ‘school room’ but our dining room is currently being rearranged to be more school friendly, and so that is where the new quote is hanging.

I left it fairly plain, to emphasize the quote itself, and not the canvas.  At first I didn’t like it at all, it was just too boring.  But the more I live with it, the more I like it.  It’s simple.  Sometimes that can be a good thing, right?  I hope my kids will develop a love of reading, and find themselves always hungry for more.

Have you read any good books lately?  If so, please share! I feel a bit lost, trying to find authors that really pull me in, as an adult.  I’d love to hear about the books that take you to another place and time!

Thanks for stopping by.
