Thursdays Question

Here we are again with Thursdays Question!

C’mon folks…I need more participation! Answer the question by leaving a comment in the comments here or on The Glorious Mundane’s facebook page

Today’s Question:

What are you currently reading?

I used to be such a great reader. I could put away a book in a day…two days max. You’re probably thinking that I will now say, “but then I had a baby”. But that is actually not what I was going to say. Having Tera did not give me less time to read. Moving to America and going to college sure did, though! For the last five years, I have grown out of the habit of reading all the time. But since I was around 35 weeks pregnant, I have tried to pick the habit back up again. Now, I’m trying to make sure that I do something other than stare at the iPhone while I nurse Tera. I have also scheduled a weekly library trip for Tera and I, so I am really trying to do more reading!

I am currently reading two books, What to Expect the Whole First Year and The Interestings. The What to Expect book is SUPER helpful, and as I read it I always think ‘oh good! It’s not just me…that is perfectly normal!’ The Interestings is…interesting. It is one of those books that is not overly enthralling, but I keep reading it just because it has enough of an interesting plot that I keep on reading.

I went to the library today, and I have 30 things checked out. Yes, 30. I just LOVE libraries, and I do love reading…but I have a hard time not getting distracted by other things (*ahem* the internet) when I have a chance to sit down and read. So, here is just a peek at the 30 things that I have checked out….

    I am currently reading a very interesting book–Trauma Through a Child’s Eyes by Peter Levine and Maggie Kline. Every person who works with children should read this book! I’m also reading The Brethren by John Grisham.

    To be honest, I’m not reading any books at the moment. I’m not reading at the moment because November is our last month of school and it gets supper busy and I know that if I start a book I will want to finish it, and right now I need to focus on finishing school with the children. I’m speaking from experience. Often in the first week of holidays we will call a reading day for two, where we simply dedicate the day to reading – that way we all get it out of our system. The last book I read was ‘Sophie’s Heart’ by Lorrie Wick – and easy weekend read. I’m not a big fan of hers, but the book got left here by a friend and one of the girls wanted to read it, so I thought I’d better read it again.
    What I am reading at the moment is the story of Joseph in the Old Testament. I’m using it for the weekly reading and writing lessons I’m putting together for Esther. Esther is our youngest child and she lives in Liberia (long story) and because of Ebola the schools are closed. So I’ve been putting together reading and writing lessons for her so that she can keep practicing her reading and writing. It’s a bit like a combination of a mini Sunday School lesson and what I call girl’s time (one on one time with mum). And yes, I’ve enjoyed reading Joseph and will be reading it for just a bit longer.

      Wow, thanks for your input! I appreciate your comment! I hope that you can have some downtime to crack open a good book sometime soon, despite your busy (and very productive!) holiday season!
