Here's what I've been reading:
The Pioneer Woman Cooks. I stumbled upon this and it has changed the way I view "reading" online--as in, I think I might be able to break into the 2000s and read online. Like the news, or maybe even a 'chapter book'. It. Was. Addictive. is all I will say about The Love Story section. I am a sucker for romance, what can I say?
Enjoying the Small Things. I have hovered over my iPhone, crying crocodile tears over her story of having a baby that she didn't know had Downs Syndrome. I can especially relate to her desire to keep her family from being defined by that. Also, I am wondering how in the world she has time to take such lovely pictures?
You Tube. Anything Elmo. I know, this isn't really reading, but it takes up a considerable amount of my "I could be reading something" time because for the 20 minutes/5 times per day that Miss Lilah gets her G-tube feedings, she insists on watching this. If it wasn't for the joy this furry red creature brings her (especially when singing ABCs with any celebrity), I could strangle him with his skinny little string arms.
Facebook. Again, not really reading. But, since I got my iPhone and this is all I feel most competent with the Facebook app, I check it often. When I learned of the Nashville flooding via Facebook, I decided it was time to set down the phone and turn on the news.
I am ready for some new summer reads. Especially since I've taken a vow of filth (i.e., very little household maintenance) for the summer and have more time to read. The last really good book I read was The Help and I am currently reading The Furious Longing of God. I recommend both. Highly. Any recommendations for me?
