Stays together! (Or are really big dorks. )
Some of you have asked how exactly Ryan and I are reading The Hunger Games together. Do we both have a copy of the book? Are we taking turns? Reading aloud? It’s quite simple, really. First I read a chapter aloud, then he reads a chapter aloud, and so on. (It’s always in this order because I like him to read last since I get sleepy.)
We first started reading together a couple of years ago when the sixth Harry Potter movie was about to come out in theaters. Ryan loved all of the Harry Potter movies but hadn’t read any of the books. I love both the movies and the books and convinced him that he needed to read the book before seeing the sixth movie. He agreed and we decided to read it together in preparation for the movie.
Reading together ended up being something we both looked forward to every night!
We always make it a point to pick books that appeal to both males and females, like Harry Potter or Phillip Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy.
It may sound strange and totally dorky, but it’s actually a lot of fun. It’s neat to be on the same page (literally) with someone and we enjoy discussing the books and predicting what will happen next.
After taking Sadie on a walk this evening and getting rained on, Ryan and I were in the mood for warm comfort food.Apparently my lunch sparked a pasta craving, because ravioli sounded perfect. Ryan and I enjoyed Monterey Pasta Company’s lobster ravioli, topped with marinara sauce. LOVE this ravioli.
Since my meals today have been completely void of any fruits, I snacked on a bowl of fresh strawberries as well.Big shout out to Wish Farms for producing possibly the best pint of strawberries I’ve ever had… and it’s not even strawberry season! I didn’t have one bad berry in the bunch!
Time to get readin’! The Games are officially about to begin. Eeee!
