SO WHAT BOOKS are on your nightstand right now? I don't get a lot of time to read, but a few weeks ago my hubby bought me a Kindle Touch and I have to say I LOVE IT!! I don't know how many times in my life I've struggled to read a book because I either would fall asleep reading or would read only to find myself thinking, "what on earth did that just say" and really having no idea what I'd just read. I like books or at least I like the idea of books and getting lost in the story. However, due to my struggles I have never been an avid reader. That is until now.

I don't know what it is with the e-readers and their e-ink, but it's so much easier for me to read. I can now read for HOURS. I have never been able to do that before!! So I am enjoying it immensely! I guess when it comes to what I read I'm kind of obsessed. I mean when I'm not reading about homeschooling, crafts/activities to do while homeschooling, I'm reading about my other "occupations" quilting and knitting.

I just finished the newest Marie Bostwick novel Ties That Bind (Cobbled Court Quilts) and it was wonderful!! This is a wonderful series of books that feature a community of women supporting each other during the best and worst of times. The book I'm currently reading is The Quilter's Apprentice: A Novel (Elm Creek Quilts Novels), which is another series of novels, again about quilters (guess I'm not to original) and I'm really enjoy these as well.

So what do you get up to in your "mommy alone" time? What books do you enjoy? Now that I'm finding that I am able to enjoy reading I'd love your recommendations!! It seems now a days I always have a book going. When do I find the time? Well, I guess I don't need a lot of sleep. Ha! Ha!

Enjoy your day!


  1. Hi Anastasia~ I have been a lifelong reader. LOVE books and have enjoyed so many authors over the years. If I start reading a book that I really don't like I wont finish it because I feel there are so many others worthy of my time. I am currently reading many classics that I have not read up til now, including children's books. On my nightstand is The Count of Monte Cristo. Have you read the Jan Karon series? :)

  2. I've been afraid of any e-reader.....afraid that it will irritate my eyes like a computer screen does. Is that true - what is your opinion? - Does it bother your eyes? Well, anyway - I'm your newest follower - thanks for stopping by my blog!

  3. I'm a reader but I'm no mommy so I read whenever I darn well please. ;-) Following you back!


I love to hear your comments! Thanks for stopping by!
