Our #1 Love and Your Chance to Spread Some Love

If you've been reading this blog for a while (or stumbled across my guest posts on another blog*), you know that my daughter and I are sort of obsessed with books.  Morgan's addiction is only recent (two years - ha!), but I should've been in BA (Books Anonymous - duh!) a looooong time ago.  Babysitters Club Sweet Valley High, anyone?

No, in all seriousness, I think books are the best thing ever.  And having a baby two years ago meant I could dive back into children's books.  We have a lot of fun reading -- especially when it's summer reading time.  We've done the public library's summer reading program since Morgan was a baby.  This year has been super fun because she's older and we can actually talk about the stories (and we've read over 1,000 pages so far)!

Anyway, I still read a good bit, though it probably doesn't count since I spend my time reading blogs.  (If you've mastered the skill of being a person that wears many hats that still has time to read actual books that don't involve curious monkeys or big red dogs, please contact me.  I'll pay you to school me.)  In my blog readings, I've come across something too special not to share.  A mommy (who lost her six-week-old baby boy Samuel to meningitis) has created a book drive to benefit several children's hospitals.  Awesome.  And she's made it so easy  -- all you do is visit one of the Amazon Wish Lists, buy a book (or however many you desire), and it ships to the hospitals.  That's it.  Did this make your day like it made mine?  Go to here to learn more and find links to this special mommy's Web site.

And if you need to be reminded just how fun books are for the little ones, here's Morgan last month reading her version of Who Stole the Cookie from the Cookie Jar?


Now go spread the love! :)
