It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

We participate in the blog trend of Monday posts about what we have read during the last week (12/14/2020-12/20/2020).

Annamarie’s Reading

Picture Books & Readers:

Everything Else:

Rambling Thoughts: Lots of reading! I’m determined to get at least some of the stacks of books out of my house before 2021 begins. I’m looking forward to reflecting on this year, and seeing how I can apply what I’ve learned about myself and my reading habits to future years (hopefully in a less time-intensive way). I’ve read more this year than I ever have, and, while I’m not at all happy about COVID, I am glad for a few of the things that have come from it, including broadening and deepening my reading. I’m not sure when the year-in-review post will appear, especially with the upcoming holidays, but expect something in the next few weeks.

Make sure to stop by on Tuesdays for short reviews of some of these titles!

Reading by the Numbers:

    Wow—I can’t believe you got so many books read! I’ve seen a lot of praise for some of these books, including Saturdays are for Stella, The Paper Boat, and Your Place in the Universe! Thanks for sharing all of these neat titles!

    Oh my, so many beautiful books here. I love everything Peter Reynolds writes. And I think Jason Chin’s artwork is so stunning — can’t wait to read this one. I thoroughly enjoyed Honeybee with my 6 year old and I can’t wait to read The Paper Boat: A Refugee Story. Thanks for all these shares! (And my apologies for an extremely late comment — I missed making the #imwayr rounds last week)
