There is something about walking into a book store that turns me into a little kid. I can spend hours, especially now that many of the stores give you cushy chairs so you can preview your selections. They also added an attached coffee shop so that after you buy the book, you don’t have to wait until you get it home to start reading. Libraries are also wonderful places. The joy of children in a library is contagious. Have you ever looked at their faces when they are in the process of carrying out all the books that they have checked out? They’ll never be able to read them all, but there is something about carrying out a large stack just in case.
This challenge may take a months to complete. Take your time. That is part of the enjoyment of this challenge which is to take time to read. You don’t even have to do it all on your own.

Children to Read to (Optional)
Take time out over the rest of the year to read 10 books. I know it seems like a lot, but turn one page at a time and you’ll be surprised how quickly you can work your way through a good story. Change it up and add a book on how to do something you’ve always been interested in adding to your repertoire. Pull out a book on poetry, science fiction, a biography…the possibilities are endless. Don’t forget to document your progress and give yourself credit., I’ve been playing with a journaling book that include painting and crafting. I’ve had more fun over the last few weeks with water color paints and the pages of my journal.
Do you have any favorite books to recommend?
I really liked “The Help” by Kathryn Stockett.
So, grab a book, sit back and enjoy!
