For the last couple of weeks we have been hitting the library hard. Before that the last time I had taken Miss Charlie to the library was when she was two! At that time we use to borrow movies, books, and go to the story readings. We always went to the city library but at the recommendation of a friend I tried out our local town library. It is fantastic.
We made it! We survived our first week back to the grind and lived to tell the story. Jordan is off starting today and I have a hair appointment this afternoon so I am very happy. Here are some other things making me happy:
I did it!!! I challenged myself to read 12 books in 2016 and I was so happy when I got this alert!!! Follow me on goodreads. I started a new challenge for 2017…16 books this year! I love to read but over the years with small children, I have constantly used the excuse that I did not have time; then I started making the time. Instead of waiting for a free hour to turn up I would read when I had 5 minutes. Before I knew it I was finishing books & buying new ones. With a quick google search I found out reading can prevent/slow the process of Alzheimer’s and Dementia, reduce stress, improve your focus, expand your vocabulary and the list goes on. Are you convinced yet? I reviewed my first six books here and now I am going to review the last six books I have read for you. No spoilers, just letting you know how I liked it and if it is worth a read. Click on the titles and it will take you straight to amazon to order your own copy!
First thing first: if you have an account with Goodreads add me. If not, get one. It is a great way to challenge yourself to read more and find more of the type of books you like. This summer after not picking up a book all winter, I challenged myself to read 6 books before school went back. I’m happy and even surprised to say I did!
