"Books to the ceiling,
Books to the sky,
My pile of books is a mile high.
How I love them! How I need them!
I'll have a long beard by the time I read them."
- Arnold Lobel


Every Tuesday is Book Review Day, where I review and recommend a children's book.

Every Wednesday is Wise Owl Wednesday, where you can butter up your brain with some children's literature facts - history, milestones, trivia ... stop by here to learn a little something about the amazing world of books for the young!

Every Thursday is Literacy Tip Day, where I offer literacy suggestions for your children based upon my teaching and parenting experience.

Keep cozy this fall with a good book!

This will be a great week of reading!! I can't wait to see what others have on their bookshelves ready to dust off and read!!

I also read several books at once, a habit I picked up from my mother probably from infancy. Although my husband and I have been married for many years, he still shakes his head when I have several books on the go and I can hear him mumbling the words 'unnatural'. You'd think he'd get over it one day (lol).

Enjoy your books!

I read several books at one time... I start them and may sit them down for several weeks before I pick them up again. Eventually one grabs my attention and I cant put it down and that is the one that is finished first :)

Welcome to the meme - I hope you enjoy it :D

I know exactly what you mean about multiple books at a time. I remember back when I used to think it would be impossible to do such a thing, but now I'm rarely without at least 3 different books. Crazy!

So glad you joined in this meme, it's one of my absolute favorites!
