Books and Reading.

In the modern world of computers, iphones, playstations and everything inbetween, I was reminded of the simple pleasures in life while in the car driving to the video/dvd shop. My gorgeous daughter (Miss Eleven) brought her paranormal YA book with her and decided to read aloud the prologue and see what I thought of the book. It was so wonderfully perfect, listening to her read the opening scene anddriving along with the a/c on with everything quiet (even Miss Two in the back was listening quietly). Sometimes the simple act of turning the pages of a book is the most precious of all!
Speaking of books, I was in my local book exchange a few days ago and was pleasantly surprised to see a young man buying a handful of mills & boon romances, lifting the lid on a few of my own preconcieved ideas. It's such a great thing to see men buying and supporting the romance genre. Kudo's to them!!

What a great moment in the car. My kids just fight, argue, and hit each other when they think I can't spot them in the mirror. LOL!

Oh, perhaps you can get each of your kids to take a book!! LOL

What a perfect moment, Mel. I'm so relieved that my teenage son, despite his obsession with the x-box and computer, also loves reading. It's so wonderful to discuss books with our kids!!!

I agree Christina. We talk about plots etc quite a bit, and thinking we may actually have a go at writing a YA in a few years =)
