I had twins last September and have had no energy or time to read. I love reading and can't go to sleep unless I have read even a few pages. I have just finished The Slap and I finally feel like I have a bit of my old pre-children life back!
Am on a roll and going to buy a myself a big pile of new books for Christmas.
Well done It took me ages to get back into reading after the DC were born. DS was 2 before I found the time to sit down and read, without falling asleep! Now I'm on a roll, and have read 100 books this year (paper, e-book and audio book) - makes a huge difference having both in school - so much reading time.
Lol, I love this thread - I've just finished reading 'The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry' - It's taken me forever as my dd2 has been forever on the go recently and have had trouble getting him to bed unless he snuggles in bed with me first - by that time I'm wiped!!!
But, btw, you have to read this book! I love my 'Fantasy' Books (and if your after a brilliant series of those, read Terry Goodkind 'Wizard's first rule series) - But this book got me, fabulous x
never you have to read - I was bought it as a present, not the type of book I would usually buy, but picked it up one day and just loved everything about it - normal bloke, got a letter, started walking - but was such a beautiful read, and very british lol, a must read x
