Reverting to Childhood?

That must be what's happening to me!  I went to the library Friday to check out some books for spring break.  That's what I miss the most since I started college...having time to curl up and get lost in a good book.  So I've been saying I wanted to check out a bunch of books and spend time reading over my break.

What's funny is what I came out of the library with...they're all from the teen section!  I've been feeling nostalgic lately, wanting to go back and re-read childhood favorites like A Wrinkle in Time, Anne of Green Gables and the entire Chronicles of Naria.  I actually looked for the newest book by Ted Dekker, my favorite author, but someone had already checked it out.  So I headed for the teen section and picked up another Ted Dekker book, Chosen.  I also got Madeline L'Engle's A House Like a Lotus, which is about the daughter of the main character in A Wrinkle in Time.  I also checked out The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, since I loved the movie, but that was just too teen-agery for me - I quit after the first couple of chapters.

I've already spent some time snuggled up with a good book this weekend, but I plan on spending a lot more time during the coming week doing just that.  I'm so excited about the having the whole week off work and out of school.  Most of all, I'm looking forward to spending time with my family, relaxing and having fun together.  It's going to be an awesome week!
