It can be hard to find any time to read a great book when you're a single mom. There's so much to attend to that your day is over-full, and then you fall into bed to find there are cookie crumbs in the sheets and the kids' socks on your pillow. Then it's morning and you do it all again. But there IS that drive to and from work, and your car still has a cd player...hmmmm.
