I love to read!

Yes. I mean it. I LOVE to read. It's probably my favorite pasttime and I don't do nearly enough of it. The hubster doesn't understand it. He's sooooo NOT the reader. He'd rather be designing or fishing or something outside. But hey! I read outside - so get the best of both worlds.

Reading lets me focus on anything but the 'now'. It's so refreshing! And once I get even a teeny tiny bit hooked, that's it - I'll read AS OFTEN and AS LATE and ANYPLACE I can! But don't ask me to read a book again. And don't ask me what it's about after I'm done. I get in some alter state of mind I guess and once it's done, so am I. But I still remember which ones I love and could probably give a "cliff's notes" if I had to! :)

I've been a reader all my life. Even when I was young, I read - every Little Golden Book I could get my hands on (or someone would read to me), Nancy Drew and whoever wrote that Sweet Valley High series?! I love Nora Roberts. I've read a few Nicholas Sparks. I've read Harry Potter. Loved the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series. And I'm on the last book of The Hunger Games trilogy. I just finished book 2 - Catching Fire, last night. LOVED IT!

I'm pacing myself before starting the third and final book - Mockingjay. COME ON WEEKEND and POOL TIME!

It took me just a short while to get into book 1 - The Hunger Games. And yes - the Hubster did take me to see the movie on opening weekend. It was gooooooooooooooooooooooood!

And is this not the most beautiful girl? I'm terrible with actors/actresses names, but she is just beautiful and fits the bill of what I expected Katniss to look like, from the depiction in the book. WELL DONE movie folks!

I truly did breeze through Catching Fire. It was a page-turner!!

I can't wait to start Mockingjay!!
 Happy reading y'all!
