Last year I must have been a good girl. Santa brought me a Kindle Fire. I was very, very excited. I have already finished my first book and am reading a second on it.
Last year I had an open-ended goal to read good books. This year I hope to do a little more. I would like to read at least 20 books this year. If my kids were older and needed less supervision I might shoot for more, but we shall see how it goes. I don’t want to just read 20 short books and call it a day. I really enjoy reading so, I am hoping to get some good ones in there.
I want to read some, classic literature, and a mix of fiction and non-fiction.
So far, I have read:
And am working on
I flew through The Hunger Games, Catching Fire is the second book in the series. I enjoyed it immensely and can’t wait to read the last installment. If you have been reading my blog you know that I have been reading Decision Points for a while now. It is interesting, but I haven’t been motivated to read it. It is not a library book, so there is no due date to push me.
As for Jake, he has been enjoying the artwork of Richard Scarry. He enjoyed the Animal Nursery Tales so much that I ended up buying it. Yay, internet for allowing me to buy a book published 30 + yrs ago for less than $15. He has also been making up titles to books he wants us to read. The last few nights he has wanted a story about “The Cat and the Loaf and the T-Rex.” A naughty cat, bad loaf (of bread) and a mad T-Rex. The imagination of a three year old is a wonderful thing!
Do you have any reading goals for the year? What is your all time favorite book that I MUST read? Are your kids reading anything noteworthy?
