I don't know if this only happened to me, but I used to be such a good reader, I could finish a novel in one day. But since I became a mommy I either a) don't find the time to relax with a good book, or b ) I find that I can't concentrate on the book as I used to. I find myself reading page after page only to realize I didn't even pay attention to what I was reading.

Anyone has suggestions as to getting back in the reading horse? I have to admit I managed to concentrate for Harry Potter 6, but I'm a big sucker for HP
But other than that, I think I've managed to finish 5 novels since David was born- and he'll be 2 next month

I like to read in the evening before bed. It really helps me shut down and relax...sort of "turn off" my brain.

Me too! I find it very difficult to read anything with an extremely active almost-3 yr. old and a 4 month old baby, so bedtime reading has to be it. My dh has passed along his Douglas Adams "Dirk Gently" novels, so I'm hoping to get to those soon, perhaps right after I finish "Conversations with God".

I read during Nick's nap time and just before bed.
