Books I'd Like To Get To

I love reading. I do. I just don't do it very much anymore. Honestly, with a job and family, it's all I can do most days to remember to put on deodorant (you're welcome). I was an English major in college and got my MA in English Lit - love writing, reading, listening to books... anything that's good and gets my brain rolling, I'll take it. 

I haven't found the balance yet with getting books back in my life without feeling like a neglectful mother. I'm away from my sweet girl all day and then I go read for a couple of hours? Nope. I think my short term strategy will be my lunch hour at work. 

Here's what I'd like to get off my shelf and into my brain: 

Quiet: the Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain

What Women Fear by Angie Smith

Bebe Day by Day by Pamela Druckerman 

She's Got Issues by Nicole Unice

I'm going to start with Quiet at work next week (since it can be applied to the workplace I won't feel quite so weird about it) and see how it goes. 

Meanwhile, I've gotten Little One some of the board books by Baby Lit. So far in the collection: Pride and Prejudice; Sense and Sensibility; A Christmas Carol. Got my eyes on Jane Eyre next. She's reading better than I am these days!
