Mippy Carlson

I'm a thitysomething stay at home mom who has a pssion and love of books. I'll read just about anything and everything, including, but not limited to backs of cereal boxes, the latest gossip rags, and even my 1st graders teachers weekly newsletters, on occasion. Seriously, I'm a readaholic who will read biographies, mystery & thrillers, horror, military stories - true and not-so-true, and of course, romance. My only problem is trying to find enough time within the 24 hours I'm given to fit my reading addcitions in with the toting around of my two kids, keeping the house semi- presentable, and attempting to cook edible homemade meals for the hubby and kids - which is much harder than my mom made it sound.
