The last time I posted was December 9th. I still wasn't feeling well and I went from bad to worse. During December is I was so sick it was just enough for me to get up and go to work every day. Then it got worse over Christmas break. So I took a break from posting on the blogs, tweeting, and getting on Facebook. I didn't do much reading of kids books while I was sick. They just didn't hold my interest, not even a short picture book. But I still did do some reading even though I was sick.
Here comes my deep dark secret. When I am that sick I want familiar happy stories, so I pulled out my collection of romance novels. I have found when I'm that sick, I pull out those books because I know the stories so well, that I don't have to think at all. I think that I read about 15 books from my collection throughout December.
I'm hoping to throw myself back into reading starting tonight. I've got a pile of picture books that are being used in a lot of Mock Caldecott programs. It been such a long time ago that I started Sidekicked by John David Anderson, I'm going to start over because I don't remember the beginning.
Do you have any deep dark reading secrets?
