This year I challenged Makiah to read twenty books outside of her school work and for school reading. It's a lot. But I know that she can do it. I have challenged Sam to read 50, yes 50 early reader books. Again, it's a lot, but I think he can do it.
This summer I have challenged myself to spend more time reading in the evenings. I have a gazillion (I tend to exaggerate) ebooks downloaded on my iPad Kindle app that need reading and this summer I am going to commit more time to reading and less time to whatever else I do to enjoy the quiet of after kids bedtime hours. Did that make sense? Not a very "educated" sentence, but other moms and homeschool moms will understand. ~Laughter~
So here it is:
One Homeschool Mom's Summer Reading List:
Homeschooly type books:
- Homeschooling Boys by Tina Razzell
- Simply Homeschool by Karen Debeus
Business and Productivity type books:
- Nut Job by Micah Moss
- How to Make Money with Pinterest
- The Organized Kitchen by Brette Sember
Wifely Type Books:
- The Titus 2 Woman by Susan Godfrey
- The Good Wife's Guide
Parenting Type Books:
- Bringing Up Girls by Dr. James Dobson
- Bringing Up Boys by Dr. James Dobson
- Shepherding a Child's Heart by Tedd Tripp
Books for Pure Enjoyment:
- This Happens Every Spring by Gary Chapman and Catherine Palmer
- A Dropped Stitches Wedding by Janet Tronstad
- Shadows of Lancaster County by Mindy Starns Clark
- A Lasting Impression by Tamera Alexander (just need to finish this one, already started it)
- Gods and Kings by Lynn Austin
This is a long list considering all the things I have on my plate (it's more like a platter it's so big), but I think it's doable and I'm excited to try. Also I will review most, if not all the books here so I can share with all three of you faithful readers. ~Laughter~
I will also update you on the kids summer reading experiences and how school is going.
What are you reading this summer? Anything fun or exciting or informative?
Well, I should stop now, looking at this list. . . I need to go read.
