Reading List for me and the Boys

I love reading. It is my favorite thing to do. Usually by this time of year, I would've already read a ton of books. This year, I'm not too sure what my problem is. Maybe, it's that my whole schedule changed to home schooling the boys full time that has me really behind on my reading. Here are the books I am currently reading, some I'm about to start reading, and some that I want to read.

Thanks for all those good book suggestions... I love to read but am always a bit at loss as to what to read to my three year old... bring on Stuart Little!

I just finished reading "Stepping Heavenward" and loved it SO much! I can't believe I'd never read it before or heard anyone talk about it. I've never been so uplifted spiritually by a book that is just fiction :)

Great reading list, thanks for posting that. It gave me a few ideas.

I saw your post on Megs blog about Matthew M. might live in your town. I live in Los Angeles and have seen him a few times. He is absolutely stunning in real life. Even if he wasn't famous and you saw him you would swear he was famous. He has this presence about him that makes you want to stare at him. I saw him with his girlfriend at the Magic Castle a few days before she gave birth and he was so sweet with her. That made him even sexier!!
