As you can see, I have no lack of things that I want to be reading right now. I'm sure there are other books scattered around the house that I didn't track down for this pile. I am really backed up on non-fiction books that I want to dive into. My attention span for non-fiction has been very short lately, but that doesn't mean the list of books that I want to read has shortened by any means.
Just to highlight a few that are in the stack: Nanny McPhee is our current read-aloud. We just finished The Silver Chair and I wanted to do something lighter before school started. I'm also hoping to start The Core, a book written by the creator of Classical Conversations, a homeschool tutorial that I have heard great things about.
We'll see how much of this I get tackled. I haven't been doing a great job carving out time to read lately, between getting ready to start school next week and getting stuff organized around the house. All good things, but hard to do with a book in your hand!
PS. You might notice a new look and a new name around the blog. I've been pondering bloggy stuff some this summer and decided I was ready for a some changes and a new theme to my spot here that reflects more where I am in life right now. (I debated - very briefly - just starting a new blog, but that was too much work to tackle right now!)
