The Gallery: Books

25 October 2012

I've always been a book lover. Before the darlings came along my Sunday mornings were dedicated to lazing in bed with my latest book. I don't get a chance to read much nowadays and I kind of miss relaxing with a bit of chick lit. The hubby loves reading too but he's really into news and current affairs so newspapers are his thing. 

These are the only books I read nowadays!
I'm happy that the darlings have inherited my love of books. Especially Lydia, she could sit for hours looking at books or having a stories read to her. Our tiny house is getting overrun with books though. But I can't bare to get rid of any of them. So we now have a basket of books downstairs and the rest are in Oliver's bedroom {we just bought a new Ikea shelving unit to house them all!}. 

Probably my favourite time of day is reading their bedtime story. We all sit on our big bed and snuggle down with a few books. Tonight we had 'I Love It When...' and 'The Gruffalo'. Yes The Gruffalo again. I've read it so many times that I know all the words by heart. Truth be told, I probably love it as much as they do.

I love this photo of hubby reading to the darlings after tea. I think it was a Rupert Bear book that they both love.

 I'm linking up with The Gallery at Sticky Fingers where the theme this week is BOOKS. Please pop over to say hello and take a look at all the other posts.
