The last few months I feel like my evenings have been filled with episodes of The West Wing and my weekends have been filled with lots of craziness. Somewhere along the way I stopped reading.
I love to read.
I remember as a kid being so thrilled because my mom would always let me order tons of books from the Scholastic book flyer. Then at the end of the year you would get a free book for every 4 or 5 you ordered through out the year. I'd start my summers out with about 10 free books.
This week I finally headed to our local library and signed up for a library card. It has been on my to do list for months but I always seemed to remember after the library was closed. Buying books on my kindle or target add up quickly!
I went in hoping to check out either Gone Girl or Lean In, but I had to put my name on a wait list for both. I really hope I get Lean In in the next few weeks. I want to read it before I head to Blogher'13 since Sheryl Sandberg is the keynote speaker on saturday, SO PUMPED!
I am currently reading the book on top of the stack in the pic above, Carried in Our Hearts, it is a book about adoption that my sweet husband bought me. So far I am loving it.
I have a few work trips planned for the summer as well as a road trip to Rhode Island and Scott will be gone for a while towards the end of the summer so I foresee lots of time to dive into a few good books.
And the Mountains Echoed is also on the top of my to read list. I love LOVE LoVeD The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns so I can't wait to get my hands on Hosseini's latest book.
I also want to read the rest of Lauren Conrad's LA Candy series, super easy read and fun to get lost in for a day.
What books do you have on your summer reading list, I can always add to my list!
