April is Reading Month for our Family


I have asked each family member to designate a book that they will be reading for an hour each night from 7:30pm to 8:30pm, Sunday through Thursday for this month. We need to get back into the swing of regularly reading. I am an English Lit major and need to rekindle my love affair with books.

Oh gosh...I can spend hours in a Barnes & Nobles. Dan and I are both big readers. I love to visit other times and worlds through reading. I think that's a great idea to set aside a family reading time. Enjoy!

Great idea! Here we have McNally Robinson - a huge bookstore - and I could spend a whole day in there - a whole lot of money, too!

What a wonderful idea! Right now I'm reading "Snow Flower and the Secret Fan" by Lisa See. Saw the recommendation on someone elses blog...can't remember which one.

What an excellent idea!! If only I could convince my hubby how important this is. I am hoping that once our daughter comes home he will be willing to give up a little of that darn tv.

lol I am one of those never without a book in hand. I too found that with my kiddos having a set reading time really helped. Enjoy!!! :)

Wonderful idea! As a reading teacher in the elementary grades, I can honestly say that this makes the absolute hugest difference in a child's literacy life.

Great idea! I am a book lover and a teacher. I don't understand how some people don't enjoy reading. I just get so lost in a good book.
