In many woman’s lives we have more on our plates than we can handle. Someone suggests a book and we have our stock answer, “I wish I had time to read. I used to before____.”
I say that with love and respect. I was one of you. House, kids, husband, friends with good gossip, work. Any free time is coveted. And most of us are so used to being on auto pilot, days blurring together, that the idea of doing “nothing but reading” produces guilt.
Mac & cheese IS a meal your family can eat tonight. Your toilets are not as dirty as you think. If it’s not the kid’s school, don’t answer the phone.
Go get a book.
Lose yourself for once.
Make it OK for today to be about you. Laugh, swoon, cry, get so damn into a book that you forget all the pressures in your life.
Here is a list of some of my favorite books and authors with links.
