A Fateful Date Night

I don’t usually love going to Barnes & Noble with my husband. It’s probably mostly because he loves to stay about half an hour longer than I would generally like, even when he tries to be mindful of it. Yet last night, as we were trying to salvage what we had left of date night, I actually found myself enjoying a few shelves of books close to the entrance. Maybe it was because, after a series of unfortunate events, we found our date night consisting of cold lasagna, tears, and stomach aches. It wasn’t anyones fault- Kyle had everything planned out, but we got to the restaurant only to discover that it, along with all of its local friends, was closed on Monday nights. I won’t go into detail, but by 10:00pm, the aisles of books and any chance for mental stimulation were looking pretty good.

Here are some I added to my list last night (along with one whose title I can’t remember about overdiagnosis of ADHD in children)- What are you reading?

  1. I just finished Heaven is For Real and it is awesome!! I am also reading two by Stormie Omartian on Prayer. I really want to read Pioneer Woman's new love story.

  2. My recent books have consisted of Animal Farm, Stepping Heavenward (per your recommendation : ), and the first book in a series called The Hunger Games by Suzzanne Collins. I definitely loved Stepping Heavenward, so thanks for the suggestion. If you want a fun read, the Hunger Games are great (so far). The first book took me like 3 days and I am almost finished with the second. Just fyi, though, my favorite book is The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. You can't beat classics!

  3. Just finished "At Home: A Short History of Private" Life by Bill Bryson. It was an interesting read on the English history of every room in the house and the events surrounding their introduction into British home life. Really quite fascinating, especially the chapter about the bathroom.

  4. 1/2 way through Heaven is for Real, have Water for Elephants cued up on the Kindle, and I am reading " Moms' Ultimate Guide to the Tween Girl World" by Nancy Rue. I have ADD – and I like it that way! 🙂

  5. My friend was just tell me yesterday about Water for Elephants! I guess now that I have two good sources saying that it's awesome, I have to read it.
