Reading Tai-Bo

This week was our vacation, or in our case “Adventure” and thus no morning writing which meant more time in the evening to read. I spent several wonderful evenings nibbling left over pizza snuggled up in my sleeping bag next to the Hunky Hubby with a flashlight attempting to stay awake for my optimum amount of reading. Couldn’t let myself fall asleep before 12:3o because that would be a waste of valuable reading time, no matter how tired I was. And of course I got to read some in the car and on the train. Not as much as one would think on an 11 hour train ride (3 small boys and their entertainment are of course a full time job) but nonetheless I loved loved loved my reading time. And what did I read with all of this glorious time…senseless fluff!

I purchased and consumed: “The Hawk and the Jewel”, “Who Brings Forth the Wind”, and “The Knight and the Dove” by Lori Wick. These are perennial favorites of mine. I first read them in high school and adored them and I have read them…oh probably once a year since then. These are the comfort foods of the reading world, the “loaded potato soup” of the literary universe. Unrealistic romance, gushy faith conversions, and babies! A surefire success when what you really want to do is RELAX. Now I realize that senseless fluff is not relaxing for one and all. In fact both of my closest friends are more demanding literary connoisseurs. But I love it! In small doses. There’s nothing better then settling back with something you’ve read before and enjoyed, a good snack in hand and a blanket wrapped around your shoulders. Of course when all of your blankets have suddenly become mattress pads spread across the bottom of the tent due to last minute packing downsizes this does present a problem, but not an insurmountable one by any means. Yeah for books!

    Me too, although I find myself confined to listening to books because I, who have no children at home, am finding that I have so many projects and other things that I can’t just sit and read. How can that be???? Hmmmm, am wondering if this is a good thing. I have a huge need to read and find that satisfied by listening to books. Otherwise, I get growley and snarly, not a fun person to be around 🙁

    Love to you.

    Oh, Lori Wick is one of my all time favorite writers and those are some of my favorites of hers! I, who rarely re-reads books, have read that series at least twice!
    In the same line I would recommend The Dream Voyagers by T. Davis Bunn. I like a lot of his books, just not the more edgy/thriller-ish type ones. 🙂
    I have a copy as soon as my pastor’s wife gets it back to me!

    Oooh, I like T. Davis Bunn too. My favorites of his are the mysteries about the antique furniture dealer who goes behind the iron curtain to find rare treasures.
