Get Lost

I love to read.  I don't remember not being able to read, and almost all my life, I've been known as the bookworm.  There are photos upon photos of me at various events with my nose in a book.  I hate to just sit and wait, so I usually have some sort of reading material with me at all times.

Reading is more than just a way to pass the time though.  It's a way for me to get lost.  When I need to get away, to forget about my life for a while, I pick up a book and get transported to a different world.

Looks like my 9 year old daughter is following in Mom's footsteps.  Everywhere we go, she has a book- most likely a Harry Potter title- tucked under her arm, ready to snag a spare minute or two to get lost in Harry's world.  Know what?  I love it!


  1. Don't you love getting lost in the world of Azkaban and at Hogwarts?

  2. I know what you mean! I'm the same kind of reader (it's sort of as necessary as breathing, right?). My kids are readers too; in fact, they don't think they can ride as far as the grocery store without taking a book along for the (3 minute) trip!
    Thanks for this post!

  3. My dream disaster when I was a kid was to find myself locked in the public library for a night! I mean it. Oh, to have access to all the books and the chairs and the quiet and read ALL night!
