100 Books a Month Challenge

We have been going through a transition. Not just in our move but also in how and what we read. We are transitioning from reading all together to doing more one on one and we also have been reading more chapter books. This means that the main list is shorter but the book list for each child has grown and there are less books and more chapters. Also both of them are starting to read.

In the past, a 100 book challenge (in a month) would have been a joke. We are definitely a book family. However, like you say, things change. I find my son with his head in his books all the time, but they are tending to be the same books, over and over! Lol.

On the plus side, he has decided he enjoys allowing me to read picture books to him again (an activity we haven't done in way too long). I love beautiful picture books, but he's 8 and the reading level is too low for him to keep his interests if he's reading them himself.

I suspect the tides will change yet again and variety will again become part of daily life

You can actually say that you have read books more than once and they count. I forgot, actually, that we did read a couple of these more than once.

I know it's been awhile. I have been missing all of my favorite homeschool blogs to visit. I'm trying to be more mindful about visiting and commenting. Your blog has always had some great ideas and fun things to do with the kids. I hope to be back more often. Have a great weekend!
