So, when the kids get a little older, I'll actually have time to read books again?

YES! When the kids were younger the most adult reading I did was right before bedtime. I would read myself to sleep. With them being older there is much more time, like when we are waiting in a Dr.s office or when you have to show up an hour (or more) before a game. I usually kill that time in the car with the book if I am not helping out.

I'm reading a book called The Smartest Kids In The World and came across a tidbit about how there isn't a better predictor of future reading success then not just reading to kids, but seeing their parents read regularly around the house. I think the former is intuitive, the latter, not necessarily.

Just finishing up The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living. It's nice to have gotten into an interesting non-fiction book again. Good read.

Currently listening to the audio book of that. The library probably won't get the next couple in audio book for a while. Bummed. Good series, though.

Our library had the first 4 in a set that you could check out. Got them for the Nook. They didn't have the 5th so I looked on Barnes and Noble and it was only $2.99. I though for sure it was a mistake but it wasn't so I am glad I downloaded it. Enjoying the series so far, just hard to keep up with all the characters at times.

Currently reading Flight from Monitcello: Thomas Jefferson at War. I highly recommend this one for anybody interested in the Revolutionary War or early American history in general. Very detailed account of the war in Virginia, which is often glossed over, and a good character study of Jefferson.

I've been reading John Greene, he's a descent writer. The kids are all reading his The Fault in the Stars which I just started, they wanted me to get it for the library, the first two I read An Abundance of Katherines and Looking for Alaska were both pretty good but not appropriate for a school library at that age.
