Reading for reading's sake

My son is a reader. He loves to visit our secondhand bookshop to get new books, he reads on his own all the time and he tells me that his current chapter books are too easy. (Am I bragging a little here? Yes.)…

What made you stop reading?

My son and I are at the bookstore. He is super excited. He has been dragged around on chores with me all day: Car wash, food shopping, photo pickup, department stores and several other places. As a reward for his super helpful behavior, I told him that I would purchase him the book we are missing from his Magic Tree House series.…

What I'm Currently Reading...

I love books. Real ones. The weight of one in my hands and the crisp sound of the pages ruffling, the mild "new book scent"...it all pleases me. Generally, I have 1-3 books being read at once, other times I have the luxury to plow through one before moving on to another. In either instance, I need to not lose my place but like all design lovers, any ol' bookmark won't…

Why every home needs bookshelves

We've been visiting a lot of model homes lately. And like most show homes, they are immaculately decorated. As we wander through the rooms, I am usually distracted by two thoughts:…

My Brain Does What When I Read?

 

Reading is remarkable. When you are proficient at reading, it appears so easy. The child scans the text, gains meaning, makes connections between ideas, new concepts and existing knowledge. Examining a new word the proficient reader will sound out each letter to form a new word if necessary, all in a split second. Decoding happens so easily because the sounds, their symbols, syllables, and meaning are recognized. If the child reads the word incorrectly, they quickly reread to make…

But Mommy likes to read at bedtime

In the evenings, my wonderful husband supervises our son's bath activities and I am the one who gets to read to him at night. I don't remember how this started. I don't think we made any sort of agreement or arrangement around it - it may have been a natural progression of my cleaning up after dinner, him taking the little guy upstairs for bed, and our son liking to snuggle with me more (generally speaking).…

Are you a digital girl?

For the past few birthdays, someone usually asks me if I want a kindle or other device to read books on. I always decline. I explain that I like my physical books and I spend too much time in my workday looking at screens. I understand that those devices are more convenient and can hold an entire library's worth of books, but I just like the feel of paper too much to give up the real deal.…

7 tips for nurturing a budding book worm

We have been in the used book store for more than an hour. Since my son has started reading on his own, picking out new books has become a MUCH more serious task than it used to be. I normally let him move at his own pace in the bookstore, but it is past lunch time, and I am pretty convinced he will sit on the floor all day and read every book he can if I let him.…

The book on the shelf

I recently took all my cookbooks to our used book store and traded them in for store credit. While there, I let my son choose some new books. He was super excited to go to his section and pick out whatever books he wanted (at only $2 per book, I said yes to everything he chose.) He chose some new Disney story books, a few I Can Read books and some Sesame…
