      Thanks! It was a Christmas gift from Bert. He got it from ThinkGeek:

      I read Also Known As, Austenland, and Midnight in Austenland in succession. Likewise, the books I’m reading with my kids are series, so we finished Betsy’s Winterhouse (our bedtime book) and Stealing Magic (audiobook we listen to while eating breakfast), and started Snowbound With Betsy and The Pirate’s Coin. At any one time, I’m usually in the midst of 4-5 books.


      • Caught Read Handed says:

        Think Geek is the best. I have so many things from that site.
        That is crazy. But at least a couple of them are kid’s books. I can’t read more than one book at a time. It’s too hard to switch worlds. I like jumping headfirst into one and then finishing it. Then I can move on.


        • Selah at A Bibliophile's Style says:

          Yep, we have tons of ThinkGeek stuff too. 🙂
          Some books are very immersive and hold my attention for a straight read through (Tooth and Claw), or are quick reads (Attachments). Usually though, if I don’t switch things up, I get bogged down in a book, and stop reading altogether. 😦

    Hey! Thanks for the shout out!

    My fave outfit this week is that drool-worthy dress that I still am on the Mad Hunt for. You look groovy, baby!

    Your daughter is precious! I have a fun quote from Dylan when he was younger but I don’t think it’s appropriate for public consumption. Maybe I’ll email it to you. 😉
