This post is a day or two late, but I decided I am going to start keeping track of our books. I will be posting our books here twice a month, the middle and the end.
Every week or two, I swap out Salean's reading books, we have so many we just can't keep them all out! We are also starting to transition from board books to paper books so even more are coming out; she is still tearing some pages so we are making sure all library books are still board books.
Here is her shelf, that Grandpa M made. At the beginning of the week, library books are in the upper right corner. The top and part of the middle shelf are new books out, and the bottom shelf houses books that were left out from the week before and larger books. Here is what we have been reading the last couple of weeks.
A star * indicates it seems to be, or is becoming, a favourite of Salean's. Two stars ** mean super favourite, read over and over and over again.

What Mama is Reading:
Mama isn't reading anything this week (which is very rare) because I just finished two books and have not had time to start another. The two I just finished are:
Donna Bell's Bake Shop by Darren Greenblatt, Matthew Sandusky and Pauley Perrette
ADHD Does Not Exist by Richard Saul, MD
This is actually a lot more than what I usually put out, but because this is the first week I put in the paper books, there is quite a few more. The books will be rotated sometime in the next day or two, titles that will be read until the end of the month.
Little Miss Salean loves her books, she will sit and 'read' them all day. We also keep a stash in the car instead of toys, because she seems to prefer them. She gets so absorbed in the books, as if they are telling her the secrets of the universe! She will definitely be a reader, I think.
Well, that's the end of our bookshelf this week, have a good weekend, everyone!
