Booking Through Thursday: Repeats

Question July 21, 2011: What’s the first book that you ever read more than once? (I’m assuming there’s at least one.) What book have you read the most times? And–how many?

My answer: The first book I can remember reading multiple times is The Hobbit. I think I've probably read it 4-5 times, so it's also the book I've read the most.  I have always loved The Hobbit, and although I also LOVE The Lord of the Rings movies, I could never really get into the books. Another book that I've read at least 3 times is Barbara Kingsolver's The Poisonwood Bible. I think that one is due for another read sometime soon (by soon I mean maybe this year).

So far this year I have read 42 books. Wow! In June, as I *patiently* awaited the arrival of my little lovey Félix, I read 11 books!! ELEVEN!!  So far this month I have read  ZERO books. I can't remember the last time I read so little!! I've been working on The Passage since sometime around June 23rd..I originally started it in hardcover, but realized I would NEVER finish it before the baby arrived so I bought it for my kindle. This was a good idea because I tend to find a few moments right before sleeping (whatever time of day or night that may be), so it's easy to handle AND it has a handy reading light too!
I am only 30% of the way into it, so I HIGHLY doubt I will finish it this month, which means I will have to enter a big fat ZERO in my list of books I've read for July for the first time ever!! Oh well!!

What are YOU reading now?

In case you hadn't noticed, I've been MIA. You did notice??? THANK YOU!!!!! Well if you noticed then you are likely my family, or one of three people in Toronto who follow my blog (I love you guys!!), if you are someone else, then THANK YOU again!!  And if you noticed then you probably figured out that I have been MIA because OUR BABY FINALLY SHOWED UP (aka was born)!! Almost a week late!! His name is Félix and he is absolutely beautiful!! He is now 2  1/2 weeks old and is doing very well-gaining weight like you wouldn't believe!! Now our little family of two is now three and it is wonderful!
So I will do my best to try to add a post here and there as we get settled in, but I don't have much time or interest in reading, I'm kind of busy feeding, and sleeping-and sleep is largely thanks to the most amazing husband in the entire world (seriously!!) and my parents almost constant help right now!!
