After a slow start for the first week, there have been a lot of picture books read in the Chaos household in the last week. I only really read to Destructo-Girl, because Mighty-Girl goes off doing different things, so I need to work on that, but DG will request piles of books in one go. She’s moved on from ‘again, again’ for every book so variety is easier in one reading session, but there is still a lot of repeat reading required.
I’m still deciding whether I should update every time we read a book or just mark it as read the first time. It will look like we haven’t read books for a long while if I don’t update, but it’s easier to just include ‘new’ books for the challenge and I was terrible at keeping everything updated last year! At the moment I’m only putting first read date on Goodreads for my 2014 shelf.
This week I’ve read a lot of Hairy Maclary. This is thanks to Adventures in Homeschooling who reminded me we hadn’t read any for ages. Ages turned out to be more than a year, because there was only one Hairy Maclary book tracked on my Goodreads last year. Ooops. It’s been a joy to read them again. And again. And again…
I thought about having a prize for whoever got to 100 books first, but then I thought that wouldn’t be fair as some people have more reading time than others, so I’ll stick to the randomly drawn monthly/weekly giveaways.
Last week’s winner of five baby/toddler books is: Jax! Congratulations!
No giveaway this week because I haven’t been organised enough to review the books first.
