Tonight me and Abby are going to start reading Charlotte’s Web! It will be her first big long real chapter book! I hope she loves it! I remember loving it when I was a kid! We already went through an abbreviated picture version of the Lion, Witch, and the Wardrobe together. It was a good 5 year old scaled down version for her. I’m hoping she can handle a very limited picture version of this story.
I wonder what we’ll read after this one?!? Maybe some Alice in wonderland? Peter Pan (which isn’t at all long, and I do have a good copy somewhere with nice pictures too). Hmmm. suggestions??
We Give Books is just the place for you.
- Join the site
- Pick a campaign
- Read books for free on the site
- When you’ve reached the last page of the book, donate it.
All the books are picture books and simple children’s lit, so they’re quick to page through. If you have kids you can sit them in front of the computer and read to, or with them. But, even if you don’t have kids (like me) you can just enjoy some cute picture books, and the satisfaction that you’re helping increase childhood literacy worldwide.
If you have free time while you’re online, it really only takes a few minutes to pick out a book, and virtually flip through it. You don’t even have to read it, if you don’t want to.
Literacy is an important issue. And, getting children interested in reading should be a number one, worldwide priority. So please, if you’re even half as passionate as I am about this, join the site and donate a few books.
And please, reblog this and get the word out. Thank you.
Just recently found this site. everyone should go there. pick some books,

I’m not used to the smaller library system here. I grew up in suburbia and well our library system had long wait times. I often forget that when putting books on hold here. So I put a few books on hold thinking it would be awhile before getting them…..WRONG! I got 3 at once! This happens to me EVERY time! I just need to learn not to plan ahead on my reading or to only put them on hold like a week before I’m ready to start.
So now I need to force myself to be a reading maniac and finish these books before they are due. (I know I know, I can and probably will renew at least 1 of them!)
Books now waiting to be read:
Out of Oz
Perks of being a wallflower
Thinking I’m gonna read the Oz book first. (its the last one to the wicked series) Then I don’t know which one I’ll read. Its nice having a life with problems like having to many books to read at a time!
I need a book to read. I just finished this one called Before I go to Sleep. It was good. Like a creepy version of 50 first dates. Ok wait its really NOT like 50 first dates. Except for the fact that she has amnesia and only looses her memory after she falls asleep at night. It was good. I recommend it.
I have alot of books on my “to read” shelf on shelfari. But I don’t remember what ones I REALLY want to read. Or what my library actually has. (Is anyone else on shelfari? or some other better site?)
So does anyone have any must read book suggestions? I need a book to read. Or otherwise I’ll be playing suduko every night to make myself fall asleep. While this is great and all, it kinda gets dull after awhile!
