The Real Thing
Kenz has discovered that she likes to read more than one book at a time. She has a system. She'll read a chapter of each one during her reading times staying with a book longer if she's really absorbed. Her preference is to stay with a series, until it is completed. She seems to be naturally disciplined with this practice and has several series waiting in the wings of her bookshelf.
The picture above was taken a month ago. Currently, she is reading the seventh of the Harry Potter's. She's done with American Girl Kit and is onto Molly. She likes to have a classic going, too! Kenz not only loves collecting books, she loves reading them. She will tell you FICTION RULES. I tease her back with NON FICTION RULES and we go back and forth.
If you guessed Transitions, you are right. I'm not as organized in my reading as Kenz. I skip around, underline and put books down for awhile. You can do that with Non-Fiction. I am reading others on my Kindle. One that I just finished and I recommend is The New Good Life: Living Better Than Ever In An Age of Less. The author is John Robbins. Yes, he is related to 31 Flavors. Another of my Kindle treasures is The Next Fifty Years: A Guide for Women at Midlife and Beyond, by Pamela D. Blair.
I do like reading some fiction. I know I will be reading Kenzie's. She's the real thing!
