Mom reads a lot. Mostly on her Kindle,
…but sometimes she reads big shopping bags full of kiddie books from the public library.
I don’t like when she reads, because it means she will pretty much ignore me the whole time.
This is unacceptable. And boring!
Even worse, sometimes she goes to Barnes and Noble and reads books in the cafe,
while I watch out the window waiting….
She keeps making lists of books she wants to read. She reads grown up books, young adult, easy reader, middle grade, and lots and lots of picture books. One of her lists says:
Cutting for Stone
Biting the Moon
The Silver Star
The View from Saturday
War and Watermelon
Rules of Summer
Charlie Bumpers Versus the Teacher of the Year
Yikes! That’s a lot of time spent ignoring me!
Mom says, “It’s my job to read.” and “How can I call myself an author if I don’t read?” and “Please don’t drool on the books!”
I do not know how to read. Mom says that’s pretty clear….
