Ducks are Different

My mom used to say that all the time and I thought of that saying the other day when I was dusting our bedroom. Garth and I are extremely compatible but we are different in a lot of ways. For example, on my night stand is one book. It will be there for anywhere from a week to three weeks but then will be replaced by another. This is what Garth's night stand looks like. When we moved to this house almost three years ago, there was only the golfing book that his boss gave him. Over the past three years he has added books but not finished any. I am a late bloomer to reading. I only started to appreciate it when I was done with college and was no longer forced to read. Now, I really enjoy it. Garth has started all these books but for some reason they just don't keep his interest for long. Here is a recent exception. I just finished the book "Freakonomics" and loved it! Garth read the first chapter before I started reading it and when I finished he asked how much time he had before I had to return it to the library. He is actually going to finish it in time and I highly recommend it to anyone, reader or not.

I had to laugh because it is the same at our house. Justin has STACKS of books and magazines on his side of the bed and I had my scriptures and the current book I am reading. I think he must finish some of the books he reads, but I know there are a lot that go unfinished. Don't tell his students!
