I have been an avid reader my whole life. I love to read a variety of books, but I must admit my favorite type is what Papa Z likes to call “Smut books” or “Chick Lit”. In the past, I would devour 10 + books lounging around the pool during the summer. Since having Zany Janie, my second child, I have read one book that is more than 20 pages long! I specify the number of pages because I have read several books to the kids, many of them 30+ times! So yep, one book over 20 pages since her birth and I’m ashamed to say it took a good 3 months to get through it. It was The Stupidest Angel: A Heartwarming Tale of Christmas Terror by Christopher Moore. I have bookshelves full of books just waiting to be read. I have no idea when I will get to them, but I’d love to get through just a handful this summer written by Jane Green, Marian Keyes, Jodi Picoult and Jennifer Weiner. For now, I need to stay out of the bookstores and concentrate on what I have because I have so many books and so little time!
Zany thought of the day: Have you ever been embarrassed because you are reading a book or listening to it on CD and someone picks it up or listens to it at the exact point it is describing a raunchy sex scene? Especially when there has been zero sex scenes up to that point! Somehow it happens every time Papa Z picks up one of my books. Guess that’s why he calls them “Smut books”!
