This is how my headboard looks most of the time. Yes, I do sleep with my books. I haven't really had much time to read lately, but who knows maybe by sleeping next to them they will somehow seep into my brain. I may not have a lot of time to read (not as much as I would like anyway), but I still manage quite a bit of reading in between household chores, the girls and work. I like to read relaxing, stress free novels.
One activity that the girls and I love to do is to browse through bookstores and book sales. We go to the mall even when we're broke and can't shop because we know the book store is free :) We can go and spend hours browsing through books. I love that places like Barnes & Noble make their stores conducive to reading. I take a stack of books and retreat into a corner and be lost for hours. My girls do the same thing.
Then one day some time ago, I ran across e-books during my bloghopping. Then I realized that you can get some of them for free!
So I thought I would share some of these links with you. I have downloaded some already, and have read a couple so far. You may be interested to know that some books especially the classics, are now available. I just finished re-reading Pride and Prejudice, and I am now deciding which one to go for next. I've downloaded several different genres so I guess it will depend on what mood I am in.
I just realized while reading the last book though, that I miss holding paper in my hand. I find reading it on the computer to be troublesome. So I think I may print out the next book.
Here are a few links where you can get some books.
Got this link from the gothic babe: eBookstation. I like this one as most of the books are in PDF format. Much easier for me to read and/or print out and I don't have to download another reader.

I'm sure there are plenty more sites out there. If you know of other sites, please let me know by leaving a comment.
