I saw this idea over on Pinterest, the home of good ideas, and decided that L and I were up for the challenge. Anne-Marie over at Child-Led Chaos has set herself the challenge to read 300 different picture books with her children this year. You can read about her reasons here.
We aim in Family Morkus to this year read 300 different story books. Be it textured board books, paper picture books or alternative cloth or bath books. L can't be trusted much with paper much ATM so I have slightly broadened the remit of the original idea. (We do read paper books with her!)
We can get off to a flying start using the books from our shelves and it will also push me to return the books L has had from the library for over a month!
Do you want to join in? I will do round ups of the books we have been enjoying fortnightly with reviews of our favourite ones.
For me I have set myself the challenge to read all the books I own and not buy any new ones for at least six months. I can download samples of new books to read later but I can't buy any new books, paper or ebook. My shelves are groaning under the weight of books I own and shamefully half haven't been read.
To make it easier, possibly, I have written down the titles of the books I own but haven't read and put them in a jar. When I need a new book I will choose a book from my jar and read it.
Again I will do reviews of books I have read and enjoyed.
So there are the reading challenges for the new year. Introduce L to 300 new stories and myself to read the books I own.
Watch this space.
