Would you mind sharing the site for your downloads? I just got my Kindle and don't want to go broke reading!

I just started reading again. I had forgotten how much I love a good book. I have a kindle and found a good website for free and cheap kindle downloads. So, I just finished reading Child of the Mist. It's got a bit of romance but not the Skinamax kind and it's a pretty good who-done-it. It has a spiritual message as well, although it's not really a throw-it-in-your-face kind of message. It takes place in Scottland 1565 and that was enough to perk my interest. lol
I just started Carrots a couple of days ago. I'm probably a quarter of the way through it. It's about a gal who stops at the grocery store and has a near death experience. After that, she can hear other people's thoughts. OOoooooo, it's pretty interesting.

Tigger -
I just started Dark Lover, I read both books of the fallen angel series by the same author (covet and crave) They were perfect "beach reads" - love, good v. evil, fighting, and a smidge of heat ;) (wink wink)

I am also reading Mountains beyond Mountains....very serious but good book about Haiti and Dr Farmer

I have read Something Borrowed, Something Blue, and Matters of the Heart all by an author who I can't remember - they rocked.

With the kids I have read 39 clues book 1, Soup, How to Eat Fried Worms and we are starting on Ribsy next.

I also read Four Corners of the Sky (meh) on my nook....and a couple others I can't recall.

I read like a fiend in the summer since I don't have time when I'm working (and if I read its professional during school)

I'm also ready The Happy Family by Richard and Linda Eyre. They are the founders of the Joy School movement, a preschool co-op that I think is AMAZING, and I wanted to see what else they have to say about parenting. I'm only 2 pages in, but I'm liking it so far. Any ideas that can make me a better mom are always helpful! emoticon

A fun just-for-me book that I just started is called Keep Chickens! I love to fantasize about what it would b e like to be a backyard farmer and have a few chickens scratching around my back yard eating up the famously huge southern "Palmetto bugs" (read: giganormous and repulsive cockroaches!) and maybe a little miniature dairy goat. Since my life is in so much flux and I have committment issues when it comes to animals, for now I just read about it...

@ Sewing Chic: Now I want to read that "Shut up about your Perfect kid" book, too! I just looked it up at the library, and they don't have it. Who's the author?

In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan-I'm not currently reading this but I finished it last fall and it totally revolutionized how I feel about food and what I put in my body.His premise is "eat food, not too much, mostly plants" and he spends the rest of the book talking about what food really is and what we're putting into our body. Not preachy, very informative, and very eye opening.

So, the Shut Up About Your Perfect Kid book was fab. It was funny, encouraging, made me cry, and had lots of good information and resources. The moms who wrote it are great. Definitely a must read if you have a special kiddo in your family!

Safe Haven was really really good. It was about a woman trying to escape from an abusive husband ... really let me work on some issues. It was really really good. Now, I'm reading "Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt" by Anne Rice - a fictional story about what it must have been like for Jesus as a child. Really cool - she's such a good story teller!!

So, this isn't on the inspirational side by any means ... but I'd like to start by saying that it has been a very long time since I've picked up a book just to read. I do all kinds of research for church and for homeschooling, as well as any other hot topic in my life. But, its been over a year since I've picked up a book to read just because I wanted to read it. That all changes today. From now on, I'm going to spend more time with my first true love, and grab whatever book is closest to the library check-out and read it.

So, I grabbed a little Nicholas Sparks - yeah, sappy, I know. Whatevs. Safe Haven, its called.

I am reading the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo....
Not that it is an inspirational book but the fact that having something to read keeps me from being bored and thus from bored eating.
