Time to read Tuesday: Books, Glorious Books!

One word. Kindle. Where had this been all my life?!? My sweet sister in law got me a Kindle Fire for Christmas this year and I downloaded some of the free stuff on it from Amazon and it was cool, but I wasn't super sure it was going to replace my real life books with pages and stuff.

But it totally has!

My library has a really cool digital library of ebooks that can be downloaded right to your device, FOR FREE!! This was a game changer! It has seriously taken my reading to new levels. #imahugenerd
I don't have to wait for weeks to check out books on hold. I feel like I am a reader again!

Instead of a stack of books accompanying me on my journeys, I have my skinny little kindle, full of amazing things to read. It has come with me to Texas, to the pool, to the beach and it was a life saver when we were camping, cause I could read in the dark, in the tent without a light! I am a little late to the game, but I think I am converted!

So far I have read about a billion books and here's what I would recommend for a little time to read Tuesday!

Such an amazing and TRUE story! World War 2, super awesome french lady spy who snuck downed American pilots out of enemy teritory, worth a read!

The sequel to Something Borrowed that picks up where the last book left off. It's a super cute and quick read!

This book kept me reading until all hours of the night on our Texas trip! Another World War 2 story (I was on a historic fiction kick, what can I say?) This book was way super sad and people kept dying left and right, so it was pretty depressing, but a very accurate account of what happened!

I love Fixer Upper SO stinkin' much! I like to think that if Brien and I just decided to quit our jobs or needed some extra money on the side that we could be the Chip and Joanna Gaines of Colorado. I mean he has the business experience and the construction experience, and I can make things look pretty for cheap. Just sayin'. Any way, the book is super sweet and all about their lives before the show and how they got to where they did and it's pretty fun to read!

So my 8th graders a few years ago had a book club with this series and they kept telling me I needed to read, but I was all like, "No Friends, it's just like the Hunger Games only not as good." and I was pretty much right, but it is pretty good. And I sure did finish all three books last week while Brien was gone, so they are okay, I guess.

Right now I am working on these two books...
I heart Jen Hatmaker. She cracks me and the book doesn't lack in the humor department. I think I might want to be like her when I grow up! Also it provides some much needed breaks from my other more serious book...

Apparently there is a show, but not on any channels that I have, but it's set in the future and super creepy, because I am pretty sure if we had the wrong people in charge that this book could actually happen!

So there you have it, me in all my nerdom. Let us be serious, if you have not gotten on board with the ebook brigade, you might want to consider it! Happy summer reading!
