The official mission is coming to a close, but I hope that new habits have been borne and will continue into 2007. On Monday, the Mr. Linky will go up, and you can link up to your results. You don't have to cover all of these areas, but I would love to hear about
- how the mission helped you actually read more
- the changes you made in order to do this
- how your attitudes and/or your children's were affected
- your plans going forward for family reading
- any or all of the books that you discovered and enjoyed.
If you are at a good stopping point and ready to link up your summary right away, you can do it Monday. If you want to cram in some more reading this week, you have until Friday, March 23 to be considered eligible for the $10 amazon gift certificate and the Cover to Cover book prizes. Even if you didn't link up at the beginning of the challenge, but were inspired by it to read more to your kids this month, please feel free to link up a post explaining that, and if you record the books that you read and enjoyed, you could still be selected to receive the book.
Some have wondered what might be next in the area of encouraging reading together, and I think that this summer, I will launch a Read WITH Me mission, focusing on reading and discussing books with your kids. I hope that those of you with older children (or even grandchildren or nieces and nephews who live far away) might be encouraged to simultaneously read a book (aloud or on your own) and then discuss it. Check back in June for more details.
