Rest and Reading

My son and I went to the library on Wednesday night where I checked out a bunch of Jude Deveraux books.  I am so glad we went because I have come down with some horrible cold that has been running rampant throughout the family.  The books have helped me to just sit and relax.

The Jude Deveraux books are part of her Edilean series.  They are a fun read.  The first book takes place in present day and the second takes place in 1766 and 1770. I am on the third which takes place in present day.  It is the kind of series that if you pick up the 3rd book you won't be lost because you didn't read the first two.  I like those.  That way I don't have to remember who said or did what in the first book in order to understand the last.  Make sense or is the cold causing me to ramble?

This morning before the DayQuil could wear off, my son and I ran around doing what I told him all week we would do:  Hobby Lobby for him and the mall for me to use a gift card.  It was quick and painless.  And because he can drive, I was able to sleep on the way home since the DayQuil wore off.

Right now I am waiting for him to come home with some movies we rented online from the Redbox.  I would like to finish my book but I think the cold is doing something to my ability to comprehend anything from one moment to the next. 

If I could knock myself out for the next few days I totally would.

I hope everyone has a safe New Year's Eve tomorrow.  I will be spending it curled up on the couch with some tissues and a book.

I used to love historical romance, but I've sort of moved away from it... now my taste runs toward, "It has to be able to happen to me in real life." I drive my friends crazy because I won't read about or watch vampires with them!

Happy New Year!

It sounds so nice to kick back and read! I love to read but it's been ahwile. My daughter got a Kindle for Christmas. I will download a book to it for me eventually but I don't know that it can compare to the feeling of holding a REAL book in hand.

I live Jude's books. Total fluff and I read to escape so it works. Enjoy!
