The result? I finished both my LMM selections (blogged here) and made it almost, but not quite, halfway through Beyond Opinion (blogged here). Yay!
I also read two short e-books: Blogger Behave and Mindset for Moms that were great food for thought (and short reads!)
I also blogged N1's Winter Reading List that I've assigned her, and on her behalf, I'll report that she's already finished two books from the list - a first to have them done so early. She finished Mr. Popper's Penguins and Huge Cabret. Now, she's never read beyond the two that I've required because she's usually got a stack of her own library selections to peruse, however, if she is willing to tackle another of Mama's choices, then she runs the risk of a prize or two. We'll see if she does that this month as she has all February to do so.
Since my January plan worked fairly well, I thought I would try the same thing for February. My goals for the next 29 days are to read:
- Running Away to Home for the Reading to Know February book club selection
- The Core - written by the founder of Classical Conversations, a well known homeschool tutorial
Only two books. I don't have any fiction grabbing me right now so I didn't put any on the list. I also really want to read Give Them Grace by Elyse Fitzpatrick, but I have told myself that I can't purchase it until I finish both of these other books. Incentive!
What are you reading? Anything good? Happy February!
