TV-Free Summer

I've felt it coming on for a while, but every time I would be convicted to go TV-free, the Office had celebrity guests or another season finale would show up.  So, as of today June 1st, I am officially going TV-free for the rest of the summer.

I'm not a super TV junkie or anything (I don't even use a tv to watch 'tv' - hulu is awesome!), but I've found myself using it to relax, often while I eat.  And it just suddenly became a habit.  I would now like to break that habit by inserting a new one.  There are several books that I have struggled to finish or even start.  Mostly its because I feel like I could/should be doing something else if I'm taking the time to sit down and read. But that's really foolish when I take the time to watch anything on a regular basis.  I also really want Jude to see me read, especially in the summertime. Summer is about experiencing life for yourself, not watching actors pretend to experience life.

Some days it feels like my brain has shrunk 3 sizes as it is.  So, I'm going to do my best to boost my entire life (parenting, relationships, educating, spirituality, etc.) through boosting my reading. Do you have any recommendations of books I just HAVE to read?  I'm looking for a few more.
