You must do the things you think you cannot do.

What I'm Reading in 2013

I love to read but don't have time to read as much as I want..well I read tons for homeschool, but that's not necessarily what I want to read for pleasure. Though I do try to finish a book or two a month.

I love historical non-fiction and biographies, but enjoy most anything that tells someone's story. I also like to read about running and general fitness.

I'm always looking for suggestions so if you've recently read a great book, let me know!
