I began reading (for the 4th time) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows but I just needed SOMETHING NEW. So, today I hit up Barnes & Noble for some new reads.
I was told by a waitress at Yanni’s (my fave local Greek restaurant) that if I liked the Twilight saga and Vampire Diaries to check out the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. So, today I picked up Dark Lover (the first in the series) by J.R. Ward. It’s listed as a “paranormal romance” series which scares me a little since I am really not into romance novels, but hey – a tip is a tip!
I also picked up My Horizontal Life: A Collection of One-Night Stands by Chelsea Handler because I think she’s HILARIOUS. She’s got two other books and I will read those eventually.
I also snagged a few books for Xander – two first reader books and on hubby’s request Alexander, Who Used to Be Rich Last Sunday to go with our other “Alexander” book.
I was thinking of purchasing Hooked on Phonics for Xander – but then I figured I would work up my own from the reader books I’ve been buying and the internet. I know I learned to read pretty early and my Mama sure wouldn’t have used Hooked on Phonics. I just remember reading with my parents as well as working in workbooks and such.
Got any good “learn to read” links for me to bookmark?
