Closing Out National Literacy Month

September is coming to an end which means we’re on the last two days of National Literacy Month. It’s not easy to try to find time during our hectic schedules but I really made the effort this month… whether I read by myself, with the kids, or with the whole family. I thought I’d share with you all the books I’ve read this month in celebration (other than the dozens of kids’ books we read for school or reading clubs):

  • The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd (Oprah’s book club)
  • Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins (because the movie is coming out soon)
  •  Mom & Me & Mom by Maya Angelou
  • Smart Money, Smart Kids: Raising the Next Generation to Win with Money by Dave Ramsey and Rachel Cruze (gotta have my finance!)
  • Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Hard Luck by Jeff Kinney (one of my kids loves this series so we read it together)
  • Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë (a classic!)
  • The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan  (recommended by a girl friend of mine)

It was a variety of books and I won’t go into detail with them because I hate spoilers but I enjoyed them all! I will continue to try to make time to read from now on. What are some books you read this month?
