My daily escape

I am a stay at home/homeschool mom. My life is all about my kids. They are with me all the time. And like every mom, I love them fiercely. But like most stay at home moms my identity has become mom.  I was a person before I had kids. I even occasionally had something funny/witty/intelligent to say.

So now that my days are filled with saying things like "get your finger out of your nose" or "why are you naked ...again??"  I kind of need an escape. Cliche? Maybe. But that's reality for a lot of people. Life can really get monotonous. Without that escape....well, I'd hate to think of what could happen.

 I have found that there are places books can take me that are exciting and funny and best of all way cheaper than a plane ticket! (all without ever leaving my kids) 

And that is how I've become a book addict. My poor bookshelves are nearly buckling under the weight of my double rows of books on each shelf. And my kindle...well that could be an episode of hoarders. 

So why do you read? I showed you mine. Now you show me yours.  I'll choose one winner at random from the comments on this post to win an ebook of your choice (up to $2.99)
