The Kindergarten graduates recently had another themed “book club” party, after procuring identical copies of Happy Pig Day at the library.

Willing to do ‘most anything to keep them reading during the summer, we simply added piggy-themed treats and an easy craft to make it special.

pigs in blankets– get it??

The rest of us are also actively racking up reading hours, my much older sister and I even sat together, reading in tandem, recently– to my book-worming delight.

Additional titles we’re enjoying:

I decided to screen this for Firstborn, since it’s on Oregon’s Battle of the Books list for next year, and I’m glad I did. While I appreciate the powerful, timely message, there’s quite a bit of sexual content in the pages and I think I’ll have her wait a couple more years. I’m glad to be reading it, however.

We found this prequel to The Mysterious Benedict Society trilogy that we devoured aloud together, the latest installment proving just as riveting.

Firstborn has started Victoria Aveyard’s series, and is presently in the middle of the second book. Our librarian friend recommended these and I plan to read them myself soon.

Center Sister’s halfway through the Hunger Games trilogy, after waiting a year after her sister was permitted to read them.

I’m also stoked to be on a launch team for another upcoming book by Anne Bogel. (I loved her book Reading People that I reviewed when it came out last year.)
