    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  74. Who has time to read? I was recently on a kick to reread some classics (especially since most of them are free on kindle), but I got a few chapters into the last one and haven't picked up a book since. I am more of a magazine reader. Much easier to read a 2 page article and put it down than a 400 page book. I've really been enjoying the Stitch magazine lately. As far as kid's books go, my girls like "Pinkalicious", anything Fancy Nancy, Amelia Bedilia series, and Flat Stanley was a surprising hit.

    ReplyDelete
  75. And I like Tactile on Facebook

    ReplyDelete
  76. I'm reading "Nothing to Envy" about North Korea, it is fascinating

    ReplyDelete
  82. I really love cookbooks. My husband I move a lot so we get cookbooks from all over the country. We just moved to Hawaii, so I am in search of learning new recipes here, learning new things about the culture and I even learned how to make a Hawaiian Quilted Pillow! So I am still in search, but for novel reading I love anything by Donna Kauffman!

It is a true story.
