Reading happens in small spurts around here these days. I feel that depending on the habits and temperament on the newborn, reading can either increase or decrease once that little one joins the family. Most days little man is super content; however, that contentment stems from him being held (usually in a carrier). I love baby wearing, but it doesn't always equal lots of snuggly reading time. Plus it's pretty hot, and having him lay in my lap just makes us both uncomfortably warm.
As he's happier for longer stretches, I hope to set up a blanket in the backyard where I can plop down the baby with a wooden ring or something and myself with a book, and we can both be happy whilst the two bigger boys find adventure around us.
My Summer Reading List is often a mix of what I have on my yearlong Reading Goal list and whatever catches my fancy elsewhere. This year is no different. I gathered some ideas from you guys over on the Facebook page about a month back as well as from family and friends I know in Real Life, and here you have it:
