#IMWAYR ~ 8/10/20

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a place to meet up and share what you have been, and are about to be reading over the week. It’s a great post to organise yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment and er… add to your groaning TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started on J Kaye’s blog and then was hosted by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at The Book Date. Jen Vincent, Teach Mentor Texts, and Kellee of Unleashing Readers decided to give It’s Monday! a kidlit focus. If you read and review books in children’s literature – picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels or anything in those genres – join them.

Happy Monday, y’all! I wasn’t sure if I was going to get this post up today but here it is! I’m coming off an incredibly busy week. As I mentioned my mom took a few days off for us to tackle some projects. I still need to take pictures, but I will get on that soon. I have needed a little recovery time. My back was killing me. We moved tons of bricks to redo the flower beds down the front and one side of my house, and I moved the wrong way picking up one of those bricks. So, that was no fun, but it’s already feeling a lot better, and I’m sure I’ll be back at 100% shortly. I didn’t get a lot of reading done because I was falling into bed exhausted for those few days. But, I did manage to read a few books.


I just finished Becoming Mrs. Lewis this morning. I was addicted from the time I started listening to it yesterday morning until I finished it this morning. It was so very fascinating. The Secret Garden is one of those classics that I never read all the way through as a child, so I’m glad I finally crossed that off my list. And I’m still enjoying the Nevermoor series very much.



I haven’t read enough of any of these to really have an opinion on them yet, but the beginnings are all good enough to keep me reading/listening.



These are some of the possibilities, but who knows. We’re going to be starting our next homeschooling year this Thursday, so I know that that will consume a lot of my time this week and in the weeks to come. Plus we’re doing physics this year. My oldest didn’t take physics before he graduated. He took biology and advanced biology, earth science, chemistry, astronomy, entomology, and forestry. Those sciences appealed to him more. But my middle child is  interested in physics, so we’ll be doing physics this year and then moving to advanced physics. That all to say that I will have quite a bit of studying to do myself since I haven’t taken physics since high school. I’m excited about it, though. I’ve been reading ahead and reacquainting myself with the concepts, and that has already lead to some interesting discussions in our home.

Happy Reading,
