16 Things About Books
1 My reading habit declined significantly after I became a mother. I don't read as fast as I did when I was younger.
2 I prefer novels to short stories. Short stories seem to me, to leave a lot of unanswered questions.
3 The last book I finished: Mistral's Kiss by Laurell K. Hamilton. I'm actually not sure why I still read her books, all the new ones belong in the erotica section.
4 What I'm reading right now: The Sisters Grimm: Once Upon a Crime by Michael Buckley. Great series of books for tweens.
5 My favorite book of all time: hmmm.... you mean I can only pick one??????? Favorite series for younger kids would be the OZ books by L. Frank Baum, for tweens/teens any of Tamora Pierce's books, and the Honor Harrington series by David Weber for adults.
6 When I was a kid, I was allowed to read whatever I wanted, and I will allow my kids to read anything, even though I will censor their movie and TV viewing. (If we have t.v., 'cause right now we only have two channels and one of them is in Spanish.)
7 I purchase most of my books. I am not opposed to libraries, I normally read my books over and over again.
8 I hope Jasmine likes books as much as I do.
9 I rarely rid of books. But since we have moved and most of our books are out now I am going to try to go through our books and get ride of the ones we will never read again. (To make room for more books!)
10 For my first Mother's Day I got two books! yay.
11 My absolute favorite children's books to read aloud to my kids: Umm... we started Rainbow Fairies, but haven't gotten to far. Jasmine's attention isn't very long right now. It was easier to read to her in utero.
12 The worst children's books to read aloud: Any fantasy book, probably, with hard to pronounce names.
13 Best childhood book memory: Going to the library and finding new authors that I still read to this day.
14 Worst childhood book memory: Any time I couldn't get the next book in the series, not because it wasn't available, but because the library just didn't have it, ever!
15 For some reason I don't like used books as much as new books. Probably materialistic of me, but I like my books to look new with no creases or tears.
16 I hate lending out my books, they are never returned in the same condition that they are lent out in. So, if I lend out any books now it is only for special cases or people.
My father brought boxes of my things when he was visiting. This is stuff I haven't seen in over three years. Wow, do I have a load of junk. Most of it is being thrown away, half given away and probably an 1/8th to be sold.
I must have saved just about every card or letter I had ever received. There are letters going back to 1996! There were letters and cards from people I had forgotten about, or have lost addresses to. I read some that I thought might be important, but even those I threw away.
I also threw away photos of people I don't remember.
Jasmine was only on the formula for about four days, it really did a number on her head. Her eczema is almost always worst on her head for some reason. Now it is mostly gone though.
I am trying to get a prescription for Domperidone right now, the Reglan is giving me problems. Low supply with some side effects, so time for something new again.
