Breaking All the Rules

I've boycotted all of the Twilight series, the Harry Potter series and I cant bring myself to try a Hunger Games.
I read a ton. All different kinds of books and I'm surprisingly open minded.
I just don't go for popularity. (Or vampires for that matter.)
Never in my life did I ever think I would start the 50 Shades phenomenon.
Welp. I did.
My sweet sister in law challenged me to read them.
I read them quick and to my surprise I liked the series.
I mean it wasn't the best series Ive ever read but I liked them.
That simple.
Well here's whats comes next.
Never in my life did I think I would read a book electronically.
I'm a pen and paper gal.
I write my lists on paper, not my fancy iPhone.
Again, my sweet sister in law told me how much she loved reading off her tablet.
I went for it.
Its so much easier.
I don't have to magically make my thumbs fatter just to hold the book open.
What have I been missing?
Sweet comfortable luxury that doesn't require a light...that's what I've been missing.
I lay with my girls as they fall asleep, we chat, we cuddle and then we turn on one of their shows and thats when I read.
With NO light.
I love it.
Goodness I love it.
Are you still kicking it old school? Or are you hip with the times and go electronically?


  1. my husband got me a nook for Mothers Day last year and I love it!

  2. I absolutely keep it old school. I look at computer screens all day long. If I can do anything to get away from them, I will. I also still read the newspaper the old way. But I also like to look at it online so that I can see the comments to the stories. Sometimes the online newspaper comments are absolutely classic!!

  3. Oh jeez... Haven't you been seeing the things I have been tweeting about getting the iPad mini? And how bad I want it???? OH and I loved 50 shades... you should read the Bared to you series now!! Just no bondage!


I love your sweet words!
