Whatcha readin’?

On the platform, readingImage by Mo Riza

Posted this on facebook today:

I hope you, homeschooling parent, are reading something yummy and wonderful just for you. Find a time during the day to get through a page or two on your Kindle or in your hand (paperback or hardback – doesn’t matter!).

Read for pleasure, read for self care, read for information, read for thought-provocation, read for the sheer expansiveness of the experience.

If you don’t have time to read, set the timer during your youngest children’s naps and spend ten minutes reading. Older kids can read at the same time. Get off the computer so you are reading something *whole*–something complete and lengthy that delves and dives and works its magic. Let yourself become immersed and discover new worlds of vocabulary and insight.

You will be better for it, so will your homeschool.

And now the fun part!

Whatcha readin’? Post it below (or add to the facebook discussion), with author, and a single sentence description so we may be enticed to look it up!

    I posted this today without knowing about this blog post but I think it is apropos. One of the things I really admire about you, Julie, is that you seem to be always learning something new.
