True. But a problem occurs around 4:20 a.m. when you realize that the author is too talented and you haven't been able to put the damn book down yet, and your alarm is set to go off in 40 minutes so you have time to get yourself and the three kids up and ready for the day. *sighs* Been there FAR too many times!
It's amazing, really, when you feel depressed and open a book, how the other world takes out your sorrows.
That's all I want for Jake. I just want him to get through school, get his DEGREE, and find a job A CAREER where he makes real money and loves it. Because if not, he's going to blame me for promising him that without a college degree, his life will be harder than he could EVER imagine. If it turns out hard WITH a degree, he'll hate me forever.
I read Shakespeare for a book report last year. We could choose our own books, as long as they were our level. Some people read Hunger Games, Harry Potter or the Maze Runner and stuff. Nope. The Taming of the Shrew for me. Nobody knew what that was, and I'm sure everybody was silently judging me. (It was really really good though!!!!) ~SS
This is what books are for me, too. I live them as if I'm in them ALL the time! :) Lianne Johnson, I can't help but think this could be a fun way to get the kids interested in reading. :)
