I have been known to step away from the computer.

And when I do step away, if the Universe is working with me and not against me, I pick up my Kindle. Oh, how I love my Kindle — I cannot count the ways. You can have my iPod, but take my Kindle and I’ll hunt you down.

Here’s what’s currently on my Kindle. Some of these I’ve read through (One Day is *tremendous*. Can’t recommend it enough!), some of them I’ve dipped into but have yet to return to, some of them are more “literature,” and some of them are more “beach” reads. They may all not be my cup of tea (hard to know just yet), but they all grabbed my attention in one way or another — and the fact that they’re all there waiting for me gives me great joy! (Update: I do read “real” books — my most recent, by Jen Lancaster, is a must in paper since her footnotes are hilarious and Kindle {or maybe it’s me} isn’t great with footnotes.)

What are you reading? If you don’t currently have a book, but want one, see if any of these pique your interest!

    Stopping by from SITS. I’d love to get back into reading. I just don’t seem to have the time for it lately.

    tonight when we finished, Hey mom you know that could be me. You know reidang is tough for me, and I have a hard time. I told him I know, but you can do anything you dream of My son’s reply I know mama, and I know I’m not alone. . Your book choked me up as a mom because I see his struggle, but his response left me thinking he will rise above this and he will do great. He also left me blubbering! Thank you for this book and how the story is told he heard he could do this thing called life and come out on top.
