Books I Want to Read

In a past life, the one where I had free time, enough energy to stay up past 8 PM, and the mental comprehension for reading books written other than Seuss and Boynton, I used to love reading. It’s been a long time since I got to read for pleasure again, but recently I had to take […]

These days I really only have time when I’m traveling for work, or […]


Mommy Skateboard’s Summer Reading List

I’m not sure what kind of dream world that I live in, but I still associate summer with reading – ah the good ol’ days.
