Since my son was six months old I have been taking him to a branch of our library for story time. At first it was sporadic since he usually wanted to take a nap during the story time hours. He finally started taking one nap a day around one year, which has made our trips to the library regular and more frequent. The added benefit of the one nap a day schedule is the length of time in which he naps. It has allowed me more time to regroup and recharge which is necessary when you are chasing a growing boy around.
One of my favorite ways of doing this is by losing myself in a story. In a matter of months I have read about 47 books. A very good friend of mine can never leave a drink without finishing it first which is my policy with books. Some of these books were better than others, but I can say that I read them cover to cover.
What I have read:
Janet Evanovich: Stephanie Plum series 1-16, Plum Spooky and Plum Lovin’
Nora Roberts: Gallaghers of Ardmore Trilogy, Bride Quartet (1-4), Inn BoonsBorro (1-2), Chasing Fire, The Villa, The MacGregors (Serena and Cain), The Witness, The Calhoun Women (Lilah and Susana), The Calhouns (Megan, Catherine, Amanda)
Susan Elizabeth Philips: The Great Escape
E.L. James: Fifty Shades of Grey
Julie Otsuka: The Buddha in the Attic
Robyn Carr: Virgin River series 1-5, Grace Valley Series 1-2
George R.R. Martin: Song of Ice and Fire series 1-4
the 5th book in the Song of Ice and Fire series better known as The Game of Thrones series.
Robyn Carr: Virgin River Series 6-11
Janet Evanovich: 16-18
Sue Grafton: A is for Alibi
Amanda Coplin: The Orchardist (releases Aug. 21)
