The Books I Would Read If I Had the Time


I read one book in 2013. ONE. This from the girl who used to read almost non-stop. From The Babysitter's Club and the Sweet Valley series as a kid, to chic lit and history books as an adult and Harry Potter...I can't tell you how many times I've read Harry Potter...You get my point, I used to read all the time. Actual books, not this electronic crap on the Kindle either.

But that was before I had kids.

Ever since Ewan was born, I am lucky to catch up on reading the various magazines I receive while exercising. So, I thought that I would create a list of books I would read if I actually had the time to do so.

 


What are some of your favorite books?

  2. I've never used that before? Is it just a place to list books you want to read?

  3. Pretty much! And you can see other people's reading lists, etc. It also gives you recommendations based on what you have read and enjoyed.

  6. I love reading, and now I have to sneak time while I'm supposedly washing my hair. :) I think I'd like the Mary Boleyn book--I've always been interested in that period of English history, and I like to read various takes on the politics and relationships back then.

  7. Those look like good books! I hope you get to read them. Just try 15 minutes a night before bed to start :) I used to not enjoy reading but for the last couple years I have been hooked. It helps settle my scatter brain and get to sleep. Unless of course its a good book, then I am up until 1 am reading.

  9. I used to, but now I'm trying to get everything I can't get done when the kids are awake done before bed so I usually just lie down and pass out. Everyone says it get easier as they get older, so maybe I'll get some reading time in eventually!

  10. My focus in history is English medieval and Tudor history :-) Alison Weir, the author of both the Mary Boleyn and Catherine Swynford books is my favorite author.

  11. Oh I know! It cracks me up when people who don't have kids tell me that they have no free time...they really have no idea!

  12. I've thought about taking books to the gym with me but then I don't know when I would read the 10 or so magazine subscriptions I have!
