Book Challenge: a Book a Week
It's an old concept with Dean and I but we're trying to bring the boys into it this year. So far they want to play a lot of video games, travel to far off places, learn new languages, and maybe gain a few new skills. Cool.
One of my goals is to increase my reading. Since I do so much school reading it's hard to do this but I'd like to think positively and then try to work around the obstacles.
For the month of January I'm working on:
13 Treasures (YA fairy tale novel)--Done
Mockingjay (YA future dystopia)--Done
The Secret Life of Houdini: the making of a superman (biography)--Done
The Mysterious Benedict Society (YA)
Napolean's Buttons: How 17 molecules changed the world (non-fiction; chemistry)
I think I see a pattern here. Maybe youth novels will help me gain my goal? :) I'm hoping that I can pack a few extra books in this month to make up for busy weeks up ahead.
Doing any reading this month? What's on your to-read shelf? I could use a few suggestions.
