This is incredibly juvenile of me, but I laughed out loud when I saw the author of book about diapers was named Gross ;0)

Jan | 119 comments I'm sorry -- I just have to ask this -- are you a speed reader? That's almost 2.5 books a week!

Jamie | 50 comments 32. The Thirteenth Tale- Diane Setterfield


message 35: by Jamie (new)

Jamie | 50 comments Yeah I thought the Gross things was funny too.

I don't read incredibly fast or anything, there was a time in the beginning of the year that all I did was read. The first few books on my list I read in a few hours, they are easy reads. I read during nap time, when the kids are playing or at the park and after bedtime when my husband is doing homework for school. Ive slowed down quit a bit though, I have other projects and I just had a baby:) Ive really found joy in reading this year though, too many good books out there!
