“A wonderful thing about a book, in contrast to a computer screen, is that you can take it to bed with you.“
~ Daniel J. Boorstein
There isn’t quite anything like curling up with a good book. One of my favorite things to do, but haven’t done for a long time is to curl up with a good book, in bed, on a rainy day.
It is something I used to do constantly as a teenager. Now that I’m a very busy mom with young children that never seems to happen. I catch my reading while playing taxi driver and have to wait for the kids. (Another plus about a book).
I’ll do my reading in the doctors office waiting room and be interrupted what seems like a hundred times per paragraph. Now when I do read in bed, which is usually every day, it is just to short segment. Gone are the days where I read in bed for hours and hours. (Well at least until my kids are nearly grown.)
One of my ideal vacations would be spending time with a good book: curling up on a hammock in the mountains, reading on the beach, or lounging in front of the fireplace with a book. I want to show my children the world, so a nanny would have to come along as well. Just so I could get past a paragraph without an interruption. Oh, and I’ve got to throw in the delicious food sitting on a tray beside me.
Yes, a wonderful book, a fireplace, a big comfy chair, and a tray of fresh fruit, delicious rolls, and sweet butter.
