It's Monday! What Are You Reading? Gift Edition.
Visit Jen at Teach MentorTexts and Kellee and Ricki at UnleashingReaders to see what they've been reading, along with everyone else who link up.
Hey Friends, My Family? We are nerds to the core. Books all around for everyone.
It's a tradition in our household to celebrate Advent and stop and reflect each week on what this means. We also open a present or two. Nothing fancy. Clothes. Fun. Faith. And Books. Lots of books.
Here's a snapshot of what we are giving and have received in books this year. A span of ages and interests here:
Here's what was gifted to me:
A quick honest reaction? I'm not enjoying this book at all. I asked for the book. I'll finish it. But the short story is this did not resonate with me. At all. I'm a little angry at this book actually. Does this happen to anyone else when they read? It's a blog post for another day...
I'm loving this cookbook. I love her stories and her voice. I also learned she has a blog. It's on my list of things to check out over Christmas break.
This picture book is really about me.
For the Mr.:
What's funny is we both said no books for each other. That we had enough. Yeah, right...
For All the kids of each Shape and Size:
Does your family do books as gifts? What are you giving/receiving this year?
