Books Galore!

My books for this semester have arrived and I have to say, I am slightly overwhelmed. I am taking 5 classes this semester and these books cover 3 of them! My other 2 classes are art classes and I don't believe they have books (thank God for small favors) but I do know that they will require a LOT of time and effort on my part. Luckily, I love art and those classes, although time consuming and sometimes stressful, are really…

Separation Anxiety

Cutie Pie has been going to preschool camp for several weeks now. We've had a huge experience with separation anxiety as a result. The first day he clinged to me for almost 45 minutes before the teacher could pry him off of me for him to experience the two hours at…

Reluctant Boy Readers

Photo from The Art of Manliness

Is there something about summer that brings out the reluctant reader? The temptations of the pool and camps and just running around being crazy seem to make curling up with a book even less attractive than normal for my two reluctant readers (Dark Omen continues to drain the new fiction shelf faster than they…

Choosing Books for Advanced Readers

On my Ink Spells blog, I've tried to give parents some content guidelines to help in choosing books for their kids. Even so, finding good books is a constant challenge as my kids are always reading faster than I can keep up. There's three of them after all; it's hardly fair.



Usually I check the AR guide first, to see what the "target" audience for the book is: publishers develop…

Twelve Tips for Reluctant Readers

I have three boys with three different learning styles and paths to reading. If you believe there is only one way to teach a child to love books, I urge you to have more than one child. And then try to teach them to read.



This great post and discussion at Imagination Soup (what a great name!) got me thinking about all the things I've done over the years to…

BOOKS! FREE BOOKS!





Today, I worked on cleaning out our home-office. It's a good feeling to condense & eliminate. I thought I might try to give away some books on my blog--what doesn't go, I'll just throw away. JUST KIDDING. I'll donate them. If there's a book you'd like,… Continue

His companion was a blue ox named… Continue

Bedtime Book Basket

My little girls are gone again–off camping with their grandparents.

Summer’s starting now, and these two little ones are growing up. It’s so

fun to see them making experiences off on their own now.

2010-06-15 - Tuesday Thoughts - Bedtime Book Basket

So, I’m sitting here blogging, de-cluttering, and missing our little

bedtime… Continue

So Many Books...So Many Colors

A task for the kid-less weekend…



Yep. What do I do when the girls are at their grandparents and my wonderful spouse is at work?Organize our book shelf by color! Yes, I’m weird. (And just in case you think I’m nuts too, I also took walks and had lots of time to write.)



I’d seen this long ago on some blog and thought, “Now that would really improve our bookshelf.” I’m always searching for ways to simplify things in our home since clutter and mess really…

Monday Muse | The Beauty of Buttons

Buttons. Yes, a strange fascination, I admit. But I love them.



2010-05-31 - Monday Muse - The Beauty of Buttons



I’ve always loved buttons. Those colorful, textured little baubles from the past. And yes, I know, it doesn’t exactly match up with the whole de-clutter philosophy…but they do bring me such happiness. And…

Teen Girls Today - More Pressure Yet More Resources

Back when I was a teenager (in prehistoric times), girls did not have nearly the pressures they have today. Without cell phones and the Internet, there was no need to be constantly on, so there was more time

to relax. There also wasn't the same urgency to beef up the college

resume with hundreds of clubs and AP courses and we didn't have parents

that signed us up for every activity known to man. However, we still

had problems, and there were very few resources…

my first love-books

Today we are looking at flea markets and books. I love books. Always have and probably will until I cant read or see or whatever anymore. One of the fun aspects of reading a book is scoring the sale. Yeah, sure, new books are great because they are new and don’t smell and no one else has ‘fingered’ the book. And I guess the Kindle and other e-readers are nice for those who like that sort of thing. I’m also a fan of audio books, especially in the car in traffic or on a long trip. But lately,…
