I'm a Reading Ninja!

I'm a reading ninja. It's true. I read an awful lot, much of which is aloud. I read a book to Mike before I put him to bed. I read the Scriptures to J and Spence, then read to each of them before I put them to bed. Most nights, I read a book to Kara before I put her to bed! (I don't usually read out loud to myself, though. That'd be kinda kooky.)

Books I've read to my family:

Mike
Where the Wild Things Are
Various fables and nursery rhymes, e.g. The Three Bears
He picks his own books, so I never know what's next

Spence
Books 1-13 (we're halfway through 13!) of A Series of Unfortunate Events
Stuart Little
James and the Giant Peach
Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator (Oh! Those Vermicious Knids!)
Next is the Harry Potter series

J
All of the Harry Potter series
All of the Chronicles of Narnia (Some were really deep to read with a 7-year-old!)
Banner in the Sky
Ender's Game
Next is the Hobbit/Lord of the Rings series

Kara
All of the Harry Potter series
Books 1-11 of A Series of Unfortunate Events (halfway through book 11)
