thankful day six

Today's blessing:
More books than we can fit on our many bookshelves

There's just nothing like curling up in a comfy chair with a good book. When I was younger I read so much that my mom actually told me to put my book down and go outside to play. So I took my book outside. Then she tried to take my book away. I solved that problem by climbing a tree. No joke. There is picture proof of this story somewhere at my parent's house.

I can see the practical use for something like a kindle or a nook. They would be great for traveling. However, there's something about holding an actual book in your hands that just can't be beat. Maybe it's the smell or the feel of the pages. I love being able to see my progress as I turn each page and discover the adventures that are about to unfold.

I don't have dilusions that P will be as big a nerd as her mother. I just hope she lets me read her bedtime stories. And I doubt it will take her long to learn that mommy has a hard time saying no to "just one more."

Tell me, what are some of your favorite books? I'm always looking for good suggestions!
