I read to keep my sanity. Even when my children were infants and I was exhausted, I'd dip into a book at the end of the day - even if it was only for 10 minutes. It's the purest form of escape I've ever found, and I can't imagine my life without it.


Escape and information. I try to carve out times for each type, as reading only for information takes all the fun out of it.

I read for the sheer pleasure of it. Congrats to Nora on this book!

I have a hard time keeping up with my reading...I wish I could make it a priority again!!!


You look so familiar; are you in my area? Just found your blog via The Women's Colony, so maybe I've visited before and forgot. Enjoyed reading, will visit again!

Slow Panic

Nora lives across the street from me! I'm so excited for her to have her first book published. A Bad Day's Work is a great read. I picked it up, curious to see what my neighbor was up to and after a couple of pages I forgot all about the author being my neighbor and found myself caught up in the mystery.


To escape, for information and sometimes just because I'm nosy and want to know all about someone's life.

I picked up a book off the "to be reshelved" cart at the library the other day and it was such a fun read. It was a YA novel set in the late 60's with a boy as the protagonist. Not usually my thing but as I said it was fun. I need to check out more books by that author.

Serial Mommy

I read to read. That simple. I do it ALL the time with ANYTHING I can get my hands on. When I do it for enjoyment, I'm particular. When I do it when I'm bored, it doesn't matter what it is as long as it engages the mind.


I read to read . . and for book club . . and i love the stephanie plum series :)


Mostly I read for entertainment and to pass time in the car pick up line.
Since I LOVE Stephanie Plum this book sounds like a good pick for me.


I read because I have to. I can't imagine not reading, and while I prefer to be picky, I will read the back of a cereal box if it's all that's available! Pleasure, entertainment, relaxation, escape, information, adventure, excitement...it's gotten me through every stage of life so far...from childhood to grandchildren.
