I love to read. I read anything and all things.
I know that when someone hears that they will automatically say – is it books? Are the kind you HOLD & turn the pages? – well, for the record – some are and for the record – you hold an Ipad, and I think that I could get a blister from turning the pages of my books…Just saying.
Let me let you in on what I read…Sometimes, I read on an Ipad, sometimes a computer, sometimes – I read news (from various sources since all are biased in some way 🙂 ), I sometimes read on an Ipad – THEY are still real books. I read that. I promise. I read online stuff (computer too)…We know I am addicted to reading the News Feed from Facebook, I also have a healthy blog list to read each day and yes some of it is gossip – there are still captions – duh – I need to READ who is with who and what they were wearing , who wore it better, what it cost (look doing math too) not just look at the photos! I do read books – hard bound books…Oh and magazines…all sorts. good ones, gossip ones, cooking and decorating ones. I also read cookbooks – In fact some would say I read cookbooks as a man would read porn (well, maybe they do not do that now with the internet so I should say as they did playboy (esquire/maxium) magazines for the “good/great articles”. Right, I look at the photos first too…a man would be proud.
So as I mentioned I love to read. Now, I read pretty fast…and this is where it becomes a funny thing – Being read to – IS a whole different story. I kind of – well…it gets to me, to say it nicely. I love the fact that my child is reading. I love that he is reading really well. I love that he loves to read…I do get a little bummed when he only brings home science (okay for the record SECRETLY bummed, I would never tell him) type books about WEIRD animals and their extremely gross behaviors and listening to stumble through words that about choked up foods…reminds me just how far I am from gossip magazines or books like Water for Elephants.
So, does this make me mean? I think not. I think it just means I LIKE/LOVE to READ. MYSELF. It is the one thing that is mine.
sincerely Jen READ
p.s. – I will continue to listen to all that nature has to offer or even freaks of nature both in nature, and beast…I will continue to smile (and will still secretly wonder why/why? he picks these books and me each night to READ too)
