Back to School Reading Challenge and Wednesday Book Club — August 28
Welcome to the Back to School Reading Challenge and Wednesday Book Club! We’re reading books to learn new things.
You’re welcome to join us! The challenge runs until September 30 so there’s still lots of time to participate.
We had three book reviews last week, with a nice mix of topics to learn about:
- Cooked by Michael Pollan at Melos bookshelf
- Anxious Kids, Anxious Parents by Reid Wilson and Lynn Lyons at Satia’s Reviews
- An Autobiography of Cheese: From Cheese Hater to Cheese Club Member about The Whole Fromage by Kathe Lison on Joy’s Book Blog
One of the books I read for the Back to School Reading Challenge was Julia Child Rules by Karen Karbo. This week, I’m test-driving (with limited success) the rule To Be Happy, Work Hard. I’ve been updating every day — the latest was last night: Live Like Julia — Tuesday Update. This has definitely been a hands-on method of learning something from a book. Just perfect for the Back to School Reading Challenge.
I’ll put up a separate post later today for our Read Along Book, How Children Succeed by Paul Tough.
What are you reading and learning right now? Link up reviews and update posts below so we can all visit.
Sounds like a great challenge! I will have to keep it in mind for next year (if you host) so that I can plan better and not have so much on my plate. 🙂
That would be great — I plan on making it an annual event. Or, if you don’t want to wait that long, I’m also planning a 2nd annual New Year’s Resolution Reading Challenge to start in mid-December.
