My husband and I have been reading to excessive amounts in our free time lately. Especially on the weekends. I mention my husband as well as myself because this little pattern isn't necessarily the best for keeping a nearly-4-year-old occupied (unless we are reading to him, which trust me I also do to nearly excessive amounts). Ah well. Umm... we're setting an example, right?
"I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves." ~Anna Quindlen, "Enough Bookshelves," New York Times, 7 August 1991
"There's nothing to match curling up with a good book when there's a repair job to be done around the house." ~Joe Ryan
