So here we go:
Okay, even I can’t read ALL the time, so I’m guessing that you folks might voluntarily shut the covers from time to time as well… What else do you do with your leisure to pass the time? Walk the dog? Knit? Run marathons? Construct grandfather clocks? Collect eggshells?
Exactly, yes. All of those things. Okay, not really. I breastfeed for fun in my spare time. No, wait, it's the other way around-- when I'm NOT nursing sometimes I do other stuff. Like teach myself to knit, teach myself Italian, teach myself to cook better, go for long walks to exciting places like the grocery store with a baby strapped to my back, teach people and learn how to wear babies strapped to your back, stuff pocket style cloth diapers... I used to just grade English papers in what would have been my leisure time but that got old so I decided to try a career in full-time lactation and poop-wiping.
Here’s something for Valentine’s Day.
Have you ever fallen out of love with a favorite author? Was the last book you read by the author so bad, you broke up with them and haven’t read their work since? Could they ever lure you back?
All other things (like price and storage space) being equal, given a choice in a perfect world, would you rather have paperbacks in your library? Or hardcovers? And why?
Paperbacks! They look lovely enough and sooooo much easier to read/hold above your face burrowed down in bed/hold w/ one hand as you nurse etc etc etc.
