It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? #imwayr 8/8/16

I blame my lack of blogging on Ruby, our new puppy. Were we completely bonkers to increase our already chaotic zoo of seven pets to eight–especially when Pet #8 is a six-month old totally untrained dog? Absolutely! But look at that face!

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? #imwyr 7/25/16

On the blog: A slice of life about my new imaginary BFF and parenting co-conspirator, fitness instructor Shaun T. In reading: Tom Hart’s graphic novel memoir, Rosalie Lightning, is not an easy read.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? #imwayr 7/11/16

I didn’t intend to somehow take a monthlong break from my Monday reading posts, but that’s what happened. A month of reading should be around 10-15 books for me, but instead I have a sad six titles to share–four of which I read to my son!–plus a handful of picture books. The Gordon Korman extravaganza…
