My kids love to read. Their noses are quite often buried in books. And while it can be frustrating that they’re sometimes slow to get ready for school or start their chores, one (very large) part of me is glad that they like to spend their time that way. Don’t get me wrong; they also like to spend time playing video games and playing outside, but books get equal time in our house.
I regularly clean out our book stash and donate them to Goodwill or Half-Price Books. But we still always have a bumper crop of books. A couple of years ago, my father-in-law built a bookshelf for the boys. It helps keep the book chaos in the living room under control. While I would love it if the bookshelf were neatly organized, I’m just glad all those books are not strewn across the floor.
Now if only I could get Starbucks to open a cafe right inside my house, we’d be all set!
