Book it!

It's become a running joke around our house that I have now become a reader. That's right, thanks to my friend and "book coach" Cindy White, I have read 2 Emily Giffen books in less than 2 weeks. It took me 6 months to read The Firm and that was even after seeing the movie first. Cindy now has me reading the Help. I know that I am the last person in the South to have read this book and I am determined to finish it before I see the movie, which came out this past Wednesday.

QUESTION: How does reading relate to this blog, you may ask? Our new home will have a "reading nook". This space was originally designed for our kids, but I'm afraid I may have to take it over and make it my new "go-to-spot" now that I am a big time reader. Ha! Ha!. Secretly, I have big plans to use it as my hideout when I need to steal away for 15 minutes with my ice-cold Diet Coke to read my latest issue of People, House Beautiful or the other 3 Emily Giffen books that I still need to read. I'm afraid that the kids will fight me for it! THOSE MEDDLING KIDS!

Please enjoy these cozy & inviting spaces where you can enjoy reading for the fun of it (and not because it's required for an AR test).

Happy weekend!

  1. Not the last one...second to the last to read The Help. You can give me the book when you are done and I will see if I can stay awake long enough to read it at night! I, like you, would love to read more books. All I ever seem to have time to look through are my fitness and nutrition magazines!

  2. I vote the first picture. That. Is. Awesome!
