With all of the chaos that surrounded Twilight, I finally gave in after a few friends had read it and thought to myself "What on earth is the big deal surrounding a silly vampire series?". As soon as I began to read, I knew. It book reeled me in instantly and I've been reading almost daily ever since I started it.
I find reading to be very soothing and calming. Each day I lay down with one or more of my children and we read together. Sometimes I'll read to them and sometimes they'll just thumb through stories while I lay down reading next to them. I'll usually read until they fall asleep and then sometimes I end up falling asleep too. It's arguably my most favorite moment during the day and I have Twilight to thank for that! Who knew it would have such a big impact?!
