Reading


Sophie loves books! In fact, if she's being naughty, warning her that she will not get to read books at rest time usually straightens her out. When she wakes up in the morning or at nap time, I can often hear pages turning before I hear talking to know that she's awake. She tends to get in a rut of reading the same books over and over for a few days. I've posted her current list of favorites to the left--you may even recognize the name of one that you've given her! I thought the list could even give someone with small children an idea for a new book to read.
Reading is my favorite thing to do when I need a break too. I especially like to go to Barnes & Noble or Caribou to read in a coffee-scented atmosphere with eclectic music playing in the background. The book I'm reading currently was by an author suggested by my mom. She told me that Rosamunde Pilcher was my Grandma Snookie's favorite author. That made me want to read Pilcher's books, and I have really been enjoying her too. Kind of fun to know my Grandma read and enjoyed the same book! I always like to have a plan for what I'm going to read next so that I'm never without a book in case I have a spare moment. So, I've posted my current read to the left also, in case others, like me, need help with ideas for books to read sometimes.

I've been missing Sophie so much that I've dreamed about her 2 nights in a row! At least I wake up feeling like her and I had a nice visit.

Don't forget to read The Shell Seekers (R. Pilcher also). That was another one of Grandma's Snookie's favorites. And she said she could read Summer Soltice over and over it was so good.

Hey - I love it that Sophie still likes her pink blanket. Aunt Rainie
