A friend recently told me that she doesn’t read.
After staring at her with my mouth open for a few moments, I replied, “I know you CAN read. Do you mean you don’t have TIME to read?”
“No,” she replied. “I don’t like to read books.”
I seriously considered ending our friendship right then, but she is a delightful lady with a witty sense of humor and I decided that she was simply reading-challenged, and to be politically correct, I should treat her with kindness (and secretly some pity).
Reading is like breathing for me. I can’t even go to the bathroom without something to read (seriously). This is a legitimate concern for me:
If you are in the middle of at least 3 different books at one time, you will see the value of this brilliant idea:
I had some material left over from the Late Night Stampers Reunion party last year and these were really fun to make (the secret is using a glue gun). For the front, take a long strip of fabric (about 3″x24″. Tie a knot in one end and wind it up into a long twisted cord, keeping the print facing out. Glue the knot to the center of a felt flower and then spiral the cord around the center, gluing it down as you go.
