What would you do if you had an hour to yourself? Imagine it no kids, just you and silence. For me, my answer would be to read. I love to read so much I even listen to books on tape. Now I know this world is crazy, you have kids demanding your attention, maybe you have a demanding job and other commitments. Life is crazy! However I feel if I have a good book to read in the in between times, you know a good escape. Than life becomes more manageable. This being said I thought I would share what I am reading this month.

I have multiple books that I read during a given month usually at the same time. This first book I call my purse book . It’s the book you will see me reading while I am waiting for my kids at school, sports practices, really anything!I seem to wait more and more with each passing year. The book that is currently in my purse is called:
“Steal Like an Artist 10 Things nobody told you about being creative”. By Austin Kleon
So far this book has been great, it is a boost to my creative soul. I am about 20 pages into it but so far I love it!
This next book is one that I read every year right before the holiday season. It is called
“The Autobiography of Santa Claus” by Jeff Guinn
This story is an historical fiction book. It is cheerful and makes you instantly in the holiday mood. I first read this book 8 years ago and it is still my go to book in November. It has history, kindness and will leave you with hope in the season. With this book you will no longer question the existence of Santa Claus. It light and perfect for those stress filled days when a pick me up is needed
This last book is on my list is one to read with your family, and kids. I strongly believe that reading to our children is giving them the gift of a love for books. This book I have yet to read but am looking forward to diving into with my little family it is called:
“Letters From Father Christmas” by J.R.R. Tolkien
From what I understand is J.R.R. Tolkien wrote letters from Father Christmas to his children every year. From these letter a book was published. The reviews on it are really good so I look forward to adding this book to our library this year.
As you can tell I love reading. Reading allows me to escape the craziness even if it is only for 20 minutes. Our house is filled with books, of every kind, that I can’t wait to share them with you. So what are you reading right now? What’s on your list to read in the future?
