    My 8-year old curtain climber canNOT get to sleep unless she reads for 30-miniutes before she turns the light out. I didn’t even realize she had this routine until she stayed the night with my mom. The knee-biter got upset when there wasn’t a lamp close enough to the bed for her to turn out without getting out of bed.

    I was proud as well, Angie!

    That’s wonderful!

    My little one (who is actually 16!) just discovered her love of reading this summer. It pained me for years that my love of books didn’t seem to get passed on to her in the gene pool.

    Then a month ago we were in a bookstore (I dragged her along with a bride for ice cream afterwards) when she found me in the romance section and I just about fainted…she had books (yes, plural!) in her hands. She asked if she could get all four as they were a series. I of course said yes.

    The next night she had a friend sleep over and when I knocked on the bedroom door I found both of them not on the phone or staring at the tv, but engrossed in reading.

    It made me so happy! :jump:

    My kids are allowed to stay up 30 minutes past thier bedtime if they are reading.
    I started this about a year ago and they now search for books they will really like to read. I’ve even found them reading during the day.
    Really does make a momwriter proud.

    Heh. The preschooler has to have her reading in bed time before lights-out. And even the toddler cries if I put her down for a nap without her favorite book (Baby Einstein Sees the Stars). My kids sleep with books!

About Me

Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.


Find Me Here

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).
