I've been reading a bit of Feast for Crows by George R. R. Martin (Book 4 in the Song of Ice and Fire series).

who has time to read--- work 40+ hours 2 kids both in sports and i play hockey mix in house chores, eating and such leaves just enough time for shower and bed.


I do all this (minus the playing hockey - haven't done that since college) plus running to ballet, karate, and piano lessons, and frequent trips to Pittsburgh and specialists for a diabetic child, plus freelance projects on the side - and I do it all without a partner for support or assistance. Waiting for a kid to finish soccer practice/basketball practice/dance class/karate class/piano lessons/after school art club/doctor's office waiting room == reading time for mom.

When you are engulfed in flames, motorcycle maintenance is usually the least of your concerns, and mindfulness might not be at the top of your list either.
There, I just spoiled the ending for you.

I am currently reading "The Lucifer effect" pretty good social psychology book based on the Stanford Prison Study. I would recommend it if that sort genre of books interest you.

Not trying to make myself out as SuperMom. Just trying to illustrate that if you really want to read something, you'll find time to read it.

I am going to see where my Worlds of Power books are... and crack open some Mega Man2.

Spoiler


Side question - does anyone *collect* books? You know like rare prints, signed copies, or ones worth more than the recycling cash value of it?

Bink Says Boo! - Best book ever.

My Kindle is packed with 1000's of titles. Lately I read:
Traffic: http://www.amazon.co...t/dp/0307264785
Longitude: The True Story of a Lone Genius Who Solved the Greatest Scientific Problem of His Time
Fight Club
Lisey's Story - Having a hard time getting through this, probably going to drop it.

You should totes read 50 Shades of Grey. I hear it's great for fapping.



It's porn that's so respectable you can read it in church. Or if you're daring but still pious you can take the cover and put it on your bible- you'd be surprised who gives you the funny looks.

To be honest, I remember really liking Zen and the Art... when I read it in high school. A lot of really interesting ideas in there, it's probably still making little differences in my head.

I haven't made time to read books, but when I do I'm going to try reading through Mona Lisa Overdrive by William Gibson.
