“Mom come here. This is my pile of “to be read” books. So ….I’m going to wrap each one up in wrapping paper and number them. Then I’m going to write the numbers on little pieces of paper and put them in a bowl and pick one every time I’m ready for a book to read. So that’s what I’m going to be busying myself with for the next couple hours. Where’s the wrapping paper? Where’s the tape?”
“Tomorrow I’m going to come home from school and start reading for 24 hours. I’m going to take a nap first and then drink some coffee and read.”
She’s got one Dickens book she says she’s afraid to read because she’s going to have to read the dictionary with it. “Everyone should read a classic, even if you don’t know how.”
She said she got this one from Goodwill.
I find her, and life itself, very entertaining.
What a great idea! She’ll have to share her top 3 when she is done. The idea of a 24 hour read a thon sounds great too.
She was inspired by I think tic tok. When I was exclaiming about how many books were in her stack she said most of the others had stacks that high too. “It’s like we are all the same, we all have the same heart” I can’t get over the things they say. Hope you had a nice day!!!! xo
What a great idea!
That is simply brilliant! I hope she loves them all but especially Dickens!
What an awesome idea May I borrow it?! I live in rural Japan and we don’t have book shops that sell books in English. Well- you can find the odd English language novel here and there but it’s rare. I order my books from an online bookstore and I hoard them lol. I put them on my shelf so I have a little library to choose from. 🌸
