I would love to say that I read a lot, but I don't. Well, I do, but it is pretty much exclusively to my children. While I get a good dose of quality children's literature each day, I always feel like I should be stimulating my mind and learning to take great pleasure in reading books myself. There are so many books that I would love to read whether they be literature, religious, homeschool related, etc., but I never seem to stick to reading any of them.
This post has affiliate links for a great book that I would love for you to read along with me!
Calling all Mamas who Want to Read!
With summer approaching, I know that my kids and I will be spending a lot of time outside. Besides playing and learning alongside of them (which I will do plenty of!) I have been trying to think what I could do out there while I watch them. I do not have any portable electronic gadgets that would allow me to surf the internet, work on this blog, create copywork, etc., so I got to thinking that this summer would be a great time to commit to reading a book (or two)!
I thought that some of you might be similar to me and might be interested in reading along with me! I am going to be reading The Well Trained Mind. I am embarrassed to say that I have not read this before, and I am very excited to begin! You do not have to read the same book as I am, but I would love it if you did! If you do, or if you have read it in the past, I hope that we can have a good dialogue about some of the chapters.
How the Book Club Will Work
Each Friday I will have a post with my thoughts concerning a portion of a book. My desire is to focus on books that would appeal, encourage, and inspire moms who teach their children using classical education, but you do not have to be like me to enjoy and participate in this! I am choosing to begin with The Well Trained Mind because I know it is something I really need to read, and I think many of you have either read it or should read it too =) I picked up a copy at my library, so if you do not own the book, check to see if yours has it!
If there is interest, I would love to have a link-up each week for anyone to share a post they have written about The Well Trained Mind or any book they have been reading themselves (not to their kids!)
