Arthur’s class is having a party. Well, not the whole class, only those who have read X number of times at home are having a party. I’m not sure Arthur is invited. I know he has read enough. We read a lot. In fact, reading is so much a normal part of the day that… Continue reading The Latest Parent-Guilt Trip
I want to read at least 36 books in 2016. This does neatly break down into three books a month, but past experience tells me that I shouldn’t use that as a hard and fast ‘rule’.

With this in mind, I read: The Story Sisters by Alice Hoffman, 4/5* (Full review here) The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman, 5/5*: One of those books that… Continue reading August Reading Summary
I have challenged myself to read 75 books in 2013, which averages out to about 6 a month. In May I read a grand total of two books. I read Must Love Dragons by Stephanie Rowe and Huntress by L. J. Smith. Neither of these were long. In fact, I read them both in one day… Continue reading On Falling Behind, But Not Giving Up.
