Reading has always been a part of my life. I enjoy reading and going to new places, experiencing emotions, and getting a different perspective.
Most recently I read Goldfinch, a Pulitzer Prize winner for fiction. Initially I did not know how I would read all 776 pages of the book; but once I started, I loved every-single-perfectly-worded-sentence. Over the weekend I finished reading The Notorious RBG. Justice Ginsberg is inspirational and firm in getting equal rights for all- and I love that she can do 20 push-ups (I cannot even do 20 push-ups).
My hope is to impress on the boys the importance of reading and learning. The big boys have started reading book series and I often have to remind Jon to stop reading and finish his other homework. Or, to put his book down and let the dentist check his teeth.
Nate has started crawling to his bookshelf and bringing me books to read to him. He will get in my lap, get cozy, and smile as we flip the pages. He lights up with a smile, clap his hands, and laughs as we turn the pages. Reading the same book three times in a row never gets old when I read them to my children.
Nook has a free book Friday and I have been downloading those. I am always on the look out for a new book to read. If you have any suggestions, send them my way.
