Quick Lit: April 2016

#raisingreaders  #bookworm  #librarylove  :) 

My 2016 Goodreads goal is 36 books -- 3 books a month -- after not quite making that goal last year.

(This doesn't count the books I read to/with my kids -- I try to post a few times a month what my kids are reading too, click here to read those reviews)

I'm already at 20 books completed, so I'm ahead of schedule. But this month was my smallest stack yet, especially since one of the books was only 62 pages long...

Korea: Part Two

We're finishing up our second and last month in Korea in the Reading Together Family Exploration Book Club! (Click here for more book club posts. This world traveling thing is fun!!)

Click here to read my Part One post about two other neat Korean kids books.


This month, after looking through Sheila's list of Korean picture books, I requested a stack of them from the library. Some were a little too long and historical for my kids, but we spent the month reading and reading three of them: Peach Heaven, The Green Frogs: A Korean Folktale, and Bee-Bim Bop.

One year.

It seems like just yesterday, yet it feels like so long ago. One year ago yesterday was my last day working at the library. 

I looked back on my blog to see what kinds of things I was thinking about, and here are a few posts I wrote this time last year about the transition:

It really has been a good year. There were lots of uncertainties at first, but now I feel very confident that it was the right decision to make. I'm very content and satisfied with life. 

Here are some highlights, and things I've noticed from the last year...
