Tropical chicken salad sandwich and watermelon mojito smoothie and a new read. I am finally getting to my #nonfictionchallenge2018 book for June.
#FierceFeb Day 21: After all those books read, I would think Ozma would say something like I am #NoOnesLittleGirl - the premise of this book is fascinating. I acquired this book a few years back and really look forward to reading it.
Disclaimer: I listened to the audiobook. I loved this book. The chapters are quick and insightful. There are scattering of book quotes throughout. And each chapter relates to books the author was reading and how those stories shaped her life and her view on life. Amazing look at the effects reading can have on our children.
I do a lot of thinking about WHY I enjoy reading. I grew up in a house where Reading wasn‘t encouraged . I wasn‘t read to, no one else read for entertainment, and I was constantly being told to put that book down . I was even asked, once a couple years ago, What Do You GET out of these things? ( holding up my current read).
Who was your reading inspiration ? Since I didn‘t have one, I‘ll ask who yours was.
I can't stand seeing parents with kids in tow totally occupied my their phones.
1. Road trip to Starved Rock
2. Not really a season...rainy afternoon while the kids are quiet watching a movie
4. Usually 0️⃣ I prefer 🆓at the local library
5. Not a particular place. I just love be transported to somewhere else
7. None. Putting tax 💲 to work at the local library
Alice was raised mainly by a single dad so their way to connect was through books. They made a pact to read every night for 100 nights. When they surpassed that, they made their goal 1000 nights. They never missed a night from age 9, until 18, the day she left for college. A beautiful book lover's story, it has a list of all the books they read together . It may encourage you to find a reading buddy in your own life.
I'd call it a pick. It's a simple and sweet story about a girl and her dad, the importance of reading, and the importance of family. A sweet read for anyone, but especially those who are lucky enough to have a strong father-daughter relationship, or those who did.
If you have to work on a Saturday, you may as well have some entertainment.
1. I'm reading at my parents' house (ideally, the porch)
2. This is my first 24in48, but I have done Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon whenever possible for years @DeweysReadathon
3. I heard about it on Litsy
4. Shadowhouse Fall by Daniel Jose Older
5. I'm a YA librarian. Working with teenagers has been a great learning curve about Manga, a genre I knew nothing about before
I'm only 38 pages in, but loving this memoir by a daughter whose father read to her nightly for eight straight years. Anybody else read this one?
I enjoyed the last third of the book more than the first two thirds, but I think I'd like the whole thing even more if I read it rather than listened
This book is poignant and funny, recalling the reading streak the author and her dad adhered to for years. The last chapter was especially inspiring in its defense of reading and reading aloud.
"I promise to be there for books, because I know they will always be there for me."
