I am a reader!!! And I have raised reading kids.
We are the reason the library puts limits on the number of books that can be checked out! (Confession: More than once, we have had to put books back on the library shelves because we had too many checked out at once!)
My favorite quote is
“Never leave home without a book and a snack!”
and I don’t. Besides my planner, I usually have a couple of books tucked into my tote bag when I leave home (because I may not be in the mood to read this one, so I need that one too!)
I have a stack of books next to my bed, books in the bathroom, books in the living room, a book on my elliptical (yes, I read while I exercise every morning!), books on hold at the library and a large queue of audio books on my phone!
One of my very favorite things to do while sewing is listening to audio books. In my book journal, I recorded 49 reads last year. I have a goal of reading/listening to 60 books in 2021 and as of the end of February, I have finished 12!
So I think I’m on pace!
Because I’m a reader, I was intrigued by this tutorial put out by Missouri Star Quilt Company this week. Isn’t this pocket pillow a great idea?!
A pocket pillow would make the perfect birthday gift for any aged child. Just tuck a new book in the pocket as well!
What do you think?
Another one of my favorite book related resources (besides your local library and the Libby App) is
The Read Aloud Revival podcast and website.
