Book Club

My three kids are 14, 12, and 6, and they love books.  Some days they spend hours just reading.  They decided that they wanted to make their own book club.  They all agreed on a book and they read one chapter together at night.  They sit on the floor of Jessica's room and take turns reading out loud to each other.  It is one of the most wonderful scenes for me as their mom.  I don't know how long they will continue with it, (Ryan says they will do it forever), at least they will remember it forever.


After much debating, I've decided to try the A to Z Blog Challenge.  So for the month of April I will attempt to be blogging every day except for Sunday.  Wish me luck!


  1. Good luck with the challenge and nice to meet you! My kids were all readers too, we used to have "read-ins" where we'd snack and read together in front of the fireplace. Now 4 of them work in publishing!


  2. Love the idea of an in-house book club! For a long time, we had family reading night. And then sports and school and music get the idea.

    Don't what their tastes run to, but they might try The Wednesday Wars by Gary Schmidt. Beautiful, funny story, exceptionally well told.

    Good luck with your A to Z!

  3. Yay! Welcome to the challenge. That's fantastic that your children are holding their own book club.

  4. Thanks everyone for your comments! Joe, thanks for the suggestion.
