The boys are 9 and 11 years old now and quite obsessed with video games of all sorts. They would play all day and night if we let them. We try to limit time spent on game systems and have a solid 30 minutes immediately after school every day spent reading. It has been a good opportunity to have some quiet time with a book after a hectic day at school and there have been no complaints.
I thought it would be fun to check in from time to time and see what the boys are enjoying reading at the moment.
James :: age 9
Thoroughly enjoying the Ricky Ricotta Series Mighty Robot by Dav Pilkey and Dan Santat.
Camden :: age 11
Happily back into the Harry Potter Series.
I also recently picked this collection up for Camden and am really hoping he will jump into it this summer.
The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart.
As for me, I have read more in the last few months than I have in years! I really enjoyed Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. I recently picked up a Kindle and am enjoying it very much too. Currently reading The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness and The Goldfinch is next on my list.
And on my cookbook stand:
Apples for Jam by Tessa Kiros is an old favourite that I turn to when I need a little inspiration or just miss my kitchen. The Endless Summer Cookbook by Katie Lee is new and just what I need to jump into summer cooking.
