reading to the boys

My oldest son has read books from early childhood. At 6 he could read a 200 + page book in 45 minutes. I would often see him siting by himself reading a novel. It's really cool to see that, because I never did. As he gets older I hope he keeps his thoughts to the book and not other things..

I am looking for laughter this weekend, because I need to laugh.

I remember when I was little, how I used to love reading, because it took me away from all the pain that I lived in....Then I dicovered drugs and alcohol! Today I make sure to read my meditation books everyday... thanks for reminding me to be grateful for my ability to read.
Love ya Lash

We just got back from a Borders & Library excursion.

The best thing is hearing them read out loud and sounding out letters. Just amazing. Like a little mini sobriety gift.

My oldest (9.5) just got another chapter book. I love this. What is that quote?

"A room without books is like a body without a soul."
Marcus T. Cicero (106-43 B.C.)

I love books. I think they saved my life.
