Reading Material on the dog crate

Yep that is my couch table. It houses my laptop, the bumbo chair and various baby toys appropriate for Harry as well as a kids dictionary, Harry Potter and Dan Brown's 'The lost symbol'. I have other books that I am trying to read, you know those books that are supposed to help you and your kids get on the same wave length or help them to sleep, stay asleep, go back to sleep, etc. It seems like since College I have had an incredibly tough time reading non fiction books. Maybe because I don't get to open my mouth and talk about the material read and that is what stops me from reading these books. And the best part is that these are books that I think look interesting and I am sure the knowledge would be helpful.
Anyways off that tangent. So I got the new Dan Brown book. I am enjoying it. It reminds of a show that was on tv a year ago or so. It was one of those follow the clues shows with families piecing together clues and traveling throughout the US and even to Paris. It was really a chance to explore our nation's history. I would love to see it happen again. Especially when my kids are older so we could watch it together. And it reminds me of the Nicolas Cage movies National Treasure1 and 2. Needless to say, I am enjoying the book.
Now onto Harry Potter. You know the cool thing about reading it out loud, is that you slow down. You can only read as fast as you can say the words out loud. I feel like I am learning so much more and I am loving that I get to finally share Harry Potter with Max. I look forward to reading it to Maggie as well in the near future (especially since she is the resident story teller.) My only sadness is that Max because of his early mornings falls asleep within a matter of minutes some days. It cuts my reading pleasure short....
