I can't imagine how anyone can crawl in bed and go to sleep without doing some reading first. I always have a book, usually several, on my bedside
shelf, one in my handbag, one in the truck. I do a lot of research online and enjoy a number of forums and blogs, but there is nothing that can quite
compare with curling up on the sofa with a good book in my hands.
I love going to Books to Share and trading in all my paperbacks for new ones. Can spend hours there, find almost anything, and leave without spending
For my more serious reading, I usually buy a hardcover from Amazon or somewhere online. We got a library in my little town not too long ago and
although they usually don't have what I am looking for on the shelves, I get inter-library loans. Am headed there in just a bit with a list of 3 or
4 I want.
I don't have any problem with parting with the paperbacks, which are usually fiction, but those hardcovers I buy, I keep and continually refer to in
alot of my research.
Everybody in my family reads, even the little ones. Since 3 of them don't yet know how to read, but they love being read to and books for them are
always on the Christmas shopping list.
I could never be without books and keep my sanity!
