I‘m terrible with sticking with #tbr lists for the month. The closest I can come to a true #OctoberTBR is the hope to finish up at least some of the books that I have been reading for at least a month. They‘re all great books, but I‘m also getting distracted by other shiny books.

It‘s my hope to also include some mysteries and thrillers and other books that won‘t give me nightmares - totally #TeamSqueamish ! #FallIsBooked

MallenNC I so relate to not sticking to a TBR and being distracted by shiny new books! 2mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I can‘t stick to a list either 🤷🏼‍♀️🤣 2mo
Sace Oh yeah. Planning my reading is just setting myself up for failure...or at least guaranteed to make my reading feel like a chore. 2mo

Librarybelle Glad I‘m not the only one who struggles, @MallenNC @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks and @RestlessFickleBookHoarder ! 2mo
Sace Not at all. I've thrown all tracking and planning out the window and just reading wherever my mood leads me. Im not reading as much, but I'm enjoying it more. 2mo
OriginalCyn620 I think we all get distracted by shiny new books! 😂 2mo
Librarybelle @OriginalCyn620 Hazard of being a reader - #somanybooksnotenoughtime ! 😂 2mo

The Hobbit | J.R.R. Tolkien

I've made a terrible mistake. I decided to reread The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings, and Silmarillion. The mistake is that I started reading it out loud to Bastet. She enjoyed it (for whatever reason) and now every time I reach for it, she sits down with me for me to continue. She's a bossy thing. #readingaloud #readingtomycat #Tolkienfankitty

chaoticgoodhufflepuff How can you say no to that face?! ❤️ 4mo

I‘m going to be reading aloud weekly on YouTube! I initially said fb live but then realized that would exclude my list fam! If you‘re interested in being read to, the survey link is below. :) https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSf0qBRkdaUZgwQa9uSiX1xG6hZjDXGnpBaxId2V...

Working my way through the Unread Shelf project and August‘s prompt is Allow Bookstagrams (and Littens) to pick your next read! Drop me a comment with your pick ♥️. #unreadshelf #books #bookaddict #reader #helpmepick

Read-Aloud Handbook | Jim Trelease
post image

(Day 29: Complementary Colors) Trelease‘s book is a gem. First part is a discussion of the research and filled with anecdotes. My personal input: Never stop reading to your kids. You think they‘ve outgrown it? They haven‘t. l read Dr. Seuss to high school students and Skippy Jon Jones to middle schoolers: They loved it. Last part is filled with great books for read-alouds. #ColormePretty @Sweetkokoro

ImperfectCJ I love Trelease's book! I give it as a baby shower gift every chance I get. 4mo
Lady_Tigana_20 @ImperfectCJ, that is a great idea for a shower gift! 4mo
Johanna414 One of the biggest things I have taken away from working in school libraries for the last 6 years - kids of ALL ages love being read to. It‘s one of the best things about my job! 4mo

This book was definitely “preaching to the choir,” as I was already a big proponent of reading aloud, but it was interesting to learn the science behind it.

mabell Very cool model! 😎 5mo
MaureenMc @mabell That pose was her own idea. 😊 5mo

The rewards of early reading are astonishingly meaningful; toddlers who have lots of stories read to them turn into children who are more likely to enjoy strong relationships, sharper focus, and greater emotional resilience and self mastery. #parenting #readaloud
