  1. Leisure reading is out of the question for me this semester. My religious studies class alone has 6 books, and I have 5 other classes. I have not read my book of Mormon yet, but I did see the movie from Netflix. Annalise liked it, and ran to me at the end and exclaimed, "Mommy, his brothers are Indians!"

    1. When I was in college I didn't get much leisure reading done either . . . but after I graduated I kind of went crazy with it because I had missed it so much!

  2. You have accomplished alot in your reading .. SO fun and don't you learn alot.. enjoy
