I’ve also finished a couple of chapter book read-alouds with my girls:
I’m in the middle of several good books now, both in my personal reading and with the girls. I’m looking forward to sharing those books here.
As for the upcoming month, this is what I’ve been waiting to share with you all! As this year comes to a close, I have realized that there are several books I truly meant to read this year and just haven’t. The lure of so many fun challenges and the fun of browsing the library shelves makes me think sometimes that a true yearly TBR list is pointless for me. Still, I think there’s value in setting goals, especially when there are perceived holes in your reading experience, as there are in mine. So I’m declaring November as the month of the Big Book Push here at Hope Is the Word, and I’m inviting you to play along. Come back some time between this Friday, October 30, and next Friday, November 6, to link up your own Big Book Push post in which you announce which book(s) you’ve neglected thus far but hope to read in the month of November. (I’ll try to keep this post up for this week as a sticky if I can figure out how.) Read and review the book(s) on your blog some time in November, and then come back on Monday, November 30, to link you reviews here.
You know there’s a button for it!
And for your sidebar:
The html for these buttons will be available in the Buttons tab above.
The Big Book Push is on!
