Kiddie books for mom

Posted On // 9 comments

I try to force myself to read books every now and then. Yeah, the real ones, with paper and all - Info v.1.0

When life gets too hectic, a year or two can easily pass by 'til I notice I haven't read anything at all! So I try to be more conscious about it. I usually read non-fiction books, but recently these have come up.

On my reading list now

1. Monkey - A Journey to the West. A Chinese classic with profound reflections on human nature and the universe. But it's something kids love because it's all about this naughty hero. A monkey that fights and does magic. I love this translation! Understandable in this planet.

But I'm not yet done because I skipped to....

2. Twilight Done with it already. *Hides face* Yuh-uh. Guilty!...

...of hitching with the bandwagon. What the hey, movie's coming out and I intend to watch because the kid playing Cedric Diggory is there. Nyum!

For me, it's no biggie. Just some Sweet Dreams-y stuff... with no kissing! Raging hormones mistaken for love, same-same. No diff with Sweet Dreams.

I wonder if kids these days read Sweet Dreams books?... Or Sweet Valley Twins/ High/ Nursing Home coming soon, i bet.

On Right Now:
3. George's Secret Key to the Universe I got this for 13year old for his bday. I got it for him mainly because it was written by THE Stephen Hawking. Yep, more on celebrity appeal. Secondary reason because it's on planets and black holes and astronomy with its physics (please don't tell him that it's only secondary, hehe)

I started it last night, so far I LURV EET!!!
Sorry Monkey, kid streaking through the cosmic universe comes 1st before you.

WHY THE HELL AM I READING CHILDREN'S BOOKS???? Ugh. I so need adult companionship.

Don't feel bad, I was so addicted to the Harry Potter series I was really sad that it came to an end. Every time a new book would come out my daughter and I would take turns reading it.

Hi - just found found your site - love it and the name - it's awesome!
I got so tired of reading kids books and stuff about potty training and sleep issues and blah blah that I decided to form a book club. We had our first "meeting" this past weekend and four other gals showed up. The book we decided to read is called A Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks. Anyway, the adult conversation was awesome and the thought of reading adult books again is totally exciting! Bye for now but I'll be back!

I'd love to read an adult book, ANY book. No time, unless you want me to give up HASAY or blogging to read?
