I know there's not a lot of time for pleasure reading this time of year, especially with school in full swing, but if you are: 1. What are you reading for pleasure right now? 2. What is your 10-14 year old (or any others out there...) reading for pleasure right now?

I don't believe Jordyn is reading anything right now, except maybe Seventeen magazine when she has a few minutes here and there.

I am reading The Ladder of Years by Anne Tyler

DH is reading EntreLeadership by Dave Ramsey

I am reading, "The Lace Reader." My book club is reading it for October and even though I won't make the meeting this month, I'm reading it anyway.

isn't that the truth Mindy! I used to know because Jordyn was on my amazon account and would order books and I could see them, but now with her own kindle account, unless she buys it specifically for the bound version, or talks about the book, I have no clue what she's reading.

Speaking of Books [since I knew it would get Mindy posting ;0)], has anyone read: "This Life Is in Your Hands: One Dream, Sixty Acres, and a Family Undone" by Melissa Coleman?

I put it in my wish list on amazon after seeing a review of it somewhere. I am one of those people that if the book doesn't start out quickly, I get bored fast and move on, and I hate spending money on books if I am not going to end up reading it. So just curious if anyone has read it.

Me too mindy! Even last week when I was home, I was hoping I'd get a bit of time to read, but nope, slept the entire time just about.
