-go to the library and stop buying so many books
I did this because 1) we don't have the space and 2) its expensive. Well...I did it. I went to the library. I hadn't been in so long I had to get a new library card. Yes, terrible. Anyway, I picked out two books (start small): Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah and To Dance With the White Dog by Terry Kay.
I read To Dance With the White Dog in 2 nights - GO GET THIS BOOK (at the library)!
GO GET THIS BOOK! I had to reiterate because I loved it that much! I really only picked it up because T is always talking about how they filmed the movie in his hometown, Americus, GA. I saw it on the shelf as I was walking out and decided I should get it. I had no idea that the author, Terry Kay, is from Georgia and that a good portion of the book takes place in MY hometown.
THIS BOOK IS AMAZING! It has the most touching story about an older couple and their love. I don't want to give away too much, but seriously READ IT! It's an easy read and I promise that most of you will be finished in a night. I love it so much that I'm buying (I know, already breaking my own rules) a copy for me and one for my grandmother. I called her Saturday to tell her that I was mailing her this book because it reminded me so much of the love between her and my grandfather.
I haven't started Firefly Lane yet, but I've heard good things about it as well. If you get time, go to your local library and take your sweet kiddos, you won't regret it! You never know what GREAT books you will find!
