Reading Is Fundamental(LY IMPOSSIBLE)

What is with all the "I am reading this now" ads on other blogs? Who has time to read anymore? I tried to get a book out of the library and unfortunately had only enough time to pick out a 14day only book before my four year old dropped his lollipop on the floor (sold at the library-go figure). He dropped to the flour and started screaming b.c. I refused to get another one - we were basically thrown out....I won't finish the book in 14 days, I'll be lucky if I can find all 14 of the kids books to return before their due date...

Today I went to Borders to get someone a gift. I spent an hr. in the kids section only to have meltdown #2 occur at the new paperbacks table (my fault he hadn't napped or eaten lunch yet). We paid for the gift and split, me sans book for myself-S'okay I couldn't afford one anyway.

At least I got to read the paper today. My son napped in the car and I read some articles-yippee I won't be illiterate forever!

THANK YOU!
Now I know I'm not alone when I read in the car while the children nap...in the car, too, of course!

Stella, I am always so bummed out when the kids fall asleep in the car and I don't have a book to read! I am vowing to travel with a book of short stories from now on in!
