Reading Books is For Noobs

This was the latest statement from my only non-reading child (1 outta 4) …

I guess there’s always gotta be one, huh?

But the rest of us COMPLETELY disagree.

When I am reading a book, I get completely lost … transported.

I may be firmly planted in Iowa, but I can travel the globe, and sometimes even time,  when I read a book.  I am inspired by other’s heroic adventures or stories of those who came before us.  And I am moved by the sheer romance of relationships, journeys, and experiences between the pages, cover to cover.

A book is an excellent escape … a welcomed silence in a world of chaos.

I feel a little empty, a kind of sadness when I finish a great book .. in a way that resembles mourning the loss of a good friend that I may never see again but will always be a part of me.

It warms my heart to see my kids reading.  To hear them giggle to themselves because something they read was funny.  And I love it when they ask if they can read just one more page or one more chapter before they turn out the light.

I guess if this makes me/us ‘noobish’, then so be it.

Besides, I think noobish is sexy…

I encourage you to read at least one good book this summer.

I’m anxious to hear what you’re currently reading or would recommend.

And if you have kids, I encourage you to get your child signed up for the Stuff Etc Summer Reading Kid’s Program.  It’s a discount punch card that earns them a punch each time they purchase books and when they’ve reached ten punches they receive a free gift from Stuff Etc!  Pick one up today at your nearest Stuff Etc location and let the reading begin.  Click here for more details.

Ok Kindle lovers … don’t you miss the sound of the pages turning? the smell of the ink on paper? all the physical properties of loving a book?

I love my Kindle.  But I miss my books.

Stuff Etc makes it super easy to get all your soon-to-be favorite titles with very little investment.  All Stuff Etc locations carry THOUSANDS, literally thousands of books.

New bestsellers, biographies, coffee table books, children’s books, travel, religion, baby names, self help, journals, romance, mystery, sci-fi, young adult ..

the list goes on and on and on … you get the picture?

For the hardcover you’d get at the local B&N for $25, you can get at Stuff for $5.

And with spring around the corner, it’s the perfect time to find some awesome reads for the beach, or under a tree, or near your favorite open window with a warm breeze blowing through … sounds heavenly doesn’t it?

I’m preparing to do something like this …

 Happy reading!

Happy Weekend

Hello my lovelies!

Sounds like a little snow is headed our way, so I was thinking, what better time for some repurposing projects?

Check out a few of my faves that have me totally inspired …
