It appears that February brought about even less personal reading time than January. I have purposed that I have to be intentional and diligent to get my reading time in for March. No problem, right?
I was able to finish up reading Parnassus on Wheels and thoroughly enjoyed that read from Christopher Morley. I had The Haunted Bookshop waiting. Unfortunately I have not made much progress with this one. Last night I really needed a bit of bedtime reading and decided to just push the rest of my to do list for the next day and grabbed the book to read a bit. Excellent decision, I have to say.
Ten Ways to Destroy the Imagination of Your Child was slowly finished up this month. When I began this book I was really enjoying it but about halfway in I grew a bit weary of the presentation. Later chapters just seemed to drag a bit. I pushed through to finish though. I had to request it inter-library loan so not easy to read again later. There were excellent points made so I don’t feel it was a waste. It lined up well in thought with other studies I have been doing on education.
Home Education by Charlotte Mason is still beside my bed. I am enjoying this book but seem to take it in small, slow chunks. Hopefully I can pick up the pace as a friend has loaned it me.
Invincible Louisa: The Story of the Author of Little Women was perhaps my favorite read this month. This child’s biography of the author Louisa May Alcott was delightful. It was an enjoyable read that presented Alcott’s life from her childhood to her passing. As I read, I felt myself become well acquainted with Louisa. How she loved and cared for others was beautiful. I have been inspired to read Little Women. A good biography needs to be a constant on my nightstand.
And finally, Frankenstein. This is one I keep bumping down my list. However, my daughter is reading it for school so I decided to go ahead and read it. I’m not sure why I have not read it before now. We shall see if I find more enjoyment than my daughter.
Not an impressive list of readings for this month. Hopefully I will get more accomplished in March. It is a longer month, right? And my to read list is growing….
