Booking Through Thursday


This is a weekly meme hosted by Deb here.


1. Do you get to read as much as you WANT to read?

(I’m guessing #1 is an easy question for everyone?)

2. If you had (magically) more time to read–what would you read?


I absolutely do not get as much time to read as I would like - lately I spend too much time online. I also love to do needlepoint, cross stitch, knit, crochet, etc - and there is not enough time for that either. Combine that with a 16 year old girl, 14 year old girl and 4 year old boy.. and activities never end! (Wouldn't trade them in for anything though!) Seems like I read the most in the bathroom (ok moms - raise your hand if you spend more time than necessary in the bathroom just so you can read!)


If I had more time to read - I would spend it reading with my teenagers. When they were young I worked full time and didn't get the opportunity to read with them as I do my youngest. I would like to introduce them to all the girl hood classics like Black Beauty and Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm and even The Little House on the Prairie series. They are both devouring the Twilight series now - which is saying something as neither one of them are serious readers.

Welcome to BTT! I've been getting interested in doing some needlework again, after many years of not doing it. Guess I'm gonna have to try audiobooks so I can "read" at the same time.

Audiobooks + needlework (of any kind) is a great combo.

No one has enough reading time, and we all could use more to read what we like. Happy 1st BTT!

I have a friend who reads and knits at the same time. I still haven't figured out how she can do that! (Maybe I should knit instead of needlepoint?)
