Winter Reading Log 2011/2012

Reading-Log-WinterYes, I know I am behind.  Here is Mattie’s Reading List for the winter months.  Mason doesn’t have any books to show as his reluctant reader-ness is REALLY creating a standstill. This list is not complete, as Mattie is hard to keep up with.  She stacks her books by the computer for me to record, but what she reads on the Kindle is hard to keep up with.  If only that trait were contagious, we would purposely infect her brother.

  1. Some people just don't like to read. My list is more like your daughters. :-)

    My son likes to listen to his books on audio which some may say is not as good, but his vocabulary is incredible, so I think it's a good thing.

  2. A great reading list! Thanks for sharing! Have a wonderful week ahead ~

  3. I think it is so neat that you keep (or the kids keep?) a list of books that are read.

  4. Tristan, I started it when Mattie finally started to really read. It makes me smile every time I see it! She has many more, that I'll have to add from the Kindle, but I needed to update my sidebar so I could return the mountain of books that had accumulated. :)

  5. Fatcat, we just started a new audio book today. I agree with you, reading aloud (whether it be you or an audio book)does wonders for vocabulary!
