Reading for the FIRST time!

After this LONG wait I finally have it in my possession!!! Ree Drummonds "Black Heels to Tractor Wheels" book. I have been waiting on this book to come out for some time now and couldn't be more excited that I have it. I read a little tonight and I realized that I was going to sit here all night until I finished it and that's just not acceptable! You know those times where you have a really really good book and you read through it so fast because it's so good and you just can't put it down? Then, when you read that last page you give the *sigh* because you know now that it's over? NOW WHAT ARE WE SUPPOSED TO DO?!?! The book is over and you have read it and it was the best book ever but now it will never be the same again. Why can't I just read it again you ask? Well, I can, and I do, and I will! But it's something about your first time reading something. You are surprised at every turn of the page. When you read it a second or third time you already know what is coming.

I remember when I met my husband and his family I felt like I HAD to read Narnia in order to understand and participate in conversations with his handsome little hobbit brothers (I already had LOTR down). I read the first few pages and was hooked. I believe I read the entire series in lightning speed. I couldn't put it down, not just because I loved the little handsome hobbit brothers so much but because it was REALLY good! Then when it was over I was disappointed. Not disappointed because the book wasn't good, it was wonderful and I have since read it over again! But, disappointed that I will never get to read Narnia for the FIRST time again.

Anyway, I feel like I have rambled on a little much tonight but as you can tell I am excited! I will let you know when I finish it. I will try and take my time although I know that's probably not going to happen.

Until next time!


  1. "Handsome little hobbit brothers" - so right. :D I love books like that... so glad you finally got your hands on that one!

  2. Your post reminds me of a picture book we love, The Very Last First Time. I'll show you the book next time you come.

    I am so tickled you finally got your hands on Ree's book. Happy reading!
