The Spring Reading Thingy...

A woman asked me yesterday when do I have time to read as my sister passed me three new books... My response
"I read in the car."
I think she thought I was kidding. Which I was not because I read in the car waiting to pick up Abby at school or at the bus stop, I read at swimming lessons and swim practice, I read at karate, and I read while I watch TV (strange but true). I am a natural at multitasking (I am a mom for Pete's sake).

My favorite place to read is sitting next to the pool on my chaise lounger, with a ice tea from Starbucks by my side, Jimmy Buffett playing in the background and the children contently entertaining themselves.
So when I found that I could win prizes for reading, I was so excited! Of course I am game! I have spent the last few weeks borrowing, buying (at Scholastic Book Fair's Dollar Days), and collecting books for The Spring Reading Thing at Callapidder Days. Lucky me gets to start the read off in San Diego with no children and end it in VEGAS with NO CHILDREN!!!
Here are the books on my list (in no order of course):
Marley and Me by John Gorgan- started it once but dropped it like a bad habit to read Breaking Dawn. I love me a good vampire love story.
Deep Down Popular by Phoebe Stone
Keeping Faith by Jodi Picolut
The Mother-Daughter Book Club by Heather Voegel Fredrick
Light on Snow by Anita Shreve
Resistance by Anita Shreve
The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith
CitizenGirl by Emma McLaughling and Nicola Kraus
Border Music by Robert James Waller
I can't wait to get started!
Don't bother me... I am reading!

I have heard great things about Jodi Picoult. I am planning on reading one of her books this year.
