I have a serious love affair.
I love to read.
Reading takes me away.
It is a pure escape for me.
I have been to the farthest reaches of the world many times over and have discovered my own backyard while never leaving my chair. Reading is like a drug to me. I'll take almost any book and devour it.
When we drew near to completing our adoption I was very worried I'd have to live for several years without my escape to far off lands, but I realized that if I took that away from myself it would be like taking a teddy bear away from a child. So I diligently make the time to gather myself inside a book under the covers of my warm bed each night and stay up, sometimes late into the night, escaping to another world and I enjoy each and every word.
I am just finishing up with The Tenth Circle by Jodi Picoult and always continuing with my ever handy, Parenting Your Internationally Adopted Child by Patty Cogen. And of course you all know I sell children's books through Barefoot Books, which the cricket loves just as much as I do!
