One of the things I wanted to do this year was read more, and I’m not talking about reading outloud for homeschooling. Read more for pleasure and for my own edification. I set my goals very low, 12 books for 2016, in the hopes that I’d actually double that. Well, here we are at the end of January and I haven’t read a single book. *sigh*
I started a book but was having trouble getting into it and decided I didn’t like the author’s style. So, I gave myself permission to return it to the library unfinished.
I’m letting myself enjoy light reading right now, because I am sorely out of practice. I want to challenge myself to read more meaty books in the future, but in the meantime I’m enjoying these. I started the middle book, “If You Were Here” this afternoon and I can tell it’s going to be a quick and enjoyable read. Hopefully I’ll be able to meet my monthly goal in the next 5 days before February starts. ;-)
“Dewey” is next, and “The Cat, the Vagabond and the Victim” is a cozy mystery if I end up not being able to finish the other two. :-) (I really enjoy Cozy Mysteries when I need something light, though I find that they start to annoy me if I read too many of them. I enjoy how many of them feature cats, though!)
Speaking of books, Savannah and I are reading “The House at Pooh Corner” in school right now. We just read the chapter where Tigger is introduced and it reminded me SO much of the 11th Doctor!
I have often equated 11 with Tigger, but I didn’t realize that part of the story was almost lifted straight from A.A. Milne, ha! That was fun, and it was fun to be able to talk about the similarities with Savannah. :-) #raisingthemright
