What are you reading at the moment?

When I first met Mr H all those years ago, I was amazed to hear that he wasn't a big book person. He liked to read the Country Life and some hunting magazines but had never had the inclination to sit down with a good book and read.

Needless to say, I was determined to get my gorgeous Mr H to experience a good book. The kind where you are completely engrossed and wish that it never had an end.

After I finished reading the 'Twilight Saga' - I raved and ranted about just how GOOOOD the books were. Obviously I ranted for long enough as next thing I knew he was a Twi-hard and addicted to books!

Since then, he has read books that I haven't even had time to read. Books ranging from The Bra Boys, history books about the farm, autobiographies on his hero Steve Irwin, The Power of One by Bryce Courtney and many more!

Recently, I bought home a book from my local Mothers Group - being Jessica by Bryce Courtney. I had been reading the first chapter over and over as I kept falling asleep and next thing I know, Mr H was snuggled beside me completely engrossed in the book!

So here he little book worm....

....sacrificing boring TV to sit and read.
It's good for the mind - it's great for the soul! And there is nothing better than lying in bed like a Nana & Papa playing footsies while reading a great book......ahhhh the romance!

  1. You're pretty amazing. I don't think there's any amount of raving that could get my hubby to read a book. He considers it my duty to tell him all about it so he doesn't have to read on his own!

    He reads Road & Track cover to cover, that's it.
