I know EXACTLY what you mean. There was a time I would pick up a book and read it through completely before beginning another. I'm the kind who reads and ponders over every single word. I am a very slow reader because of that. Yet, It never occurred to me, before, to have more than one book going at a time.

And then I got active on the Internet. End of story.

I still prefer taking my physical Bible to church...even when I'm doing my daily devotions at home ( although I do use my ipad often enough at home). I doubt I'll take my ipad to church though...somehow I'm afraid it would be too pretentious. Plus, I find things stick better in my head if I'm marking and making notes in the margins of my physical Bible than if I were highlighting and 'typing' notes into my ereader.

Oh!...I know about the hair getting frizzy part!....my hair used to look like a virtual bird's nest after I hit puberty!...and even the colour changed so drastically. I used to moan the loss of silky, black, staight hair! My classmates and friends used to have a field day stuffing things in my hair without my knowing it. Lol!

But, you sound like you've had a really bad experience. In our schools here, bullying isn't really common. Actually, no one can get away with it if they do start off, because even students don't tolerate it, and someone is bound to take up a timid person's case and finish the 'bully' off.

Our worst cases of bullying actually happen in colleges. There it's horrible! We have deaths and suicides and rapes in medical colleges and sometimes in engineering colleges. The level of bullying in what we call Arts & Science colleges is pretty low because those authorities take 'ragging' very seriously, suspending or even expelling students if they cross the line into the ragging zone!

Sounds like a good way to be. :)

Just last week I posted a similar post -- basically stating that I was forfeiting the dozen challenges I'd signed up for so that I could read whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted. My 'goal' is to finish all the unread books on my shelf, which I am quite sure I'll do without the help of challenges. I found that the challenges were restricting me a great deal. One week later, and I'm so glad I did what I did. I'm having such a lovely time just reading what I want, at my own pace too! :D

Oh and as we're talking of babies...to my surprise, I found, in the first two months after my baby was born I had a great deal of spare time on my hands. I read so much! But then again, I had the rest of my family taking care of things for me, so my burden, if there was any, was extremely light. :)

Thank you so much for the link-up Kate!

The Betty and Boo link was very amusing. :D ....and I glanced through Jillian's post before this. I'm hoping to go back and read it with leisure when I have more time. :)

I would suggest The Far Pavillions and Shadow of the Moon by M M Kaye. The Thorn Birds by Colleen McCullough is also a good bet. All these are epic stories along the lines of Gone with the Wind. The first two are set in India round the time of the British Raj. The third is set in Australia from the beginning of to the mid-1900s
