Library Loot

For those of you who have been reading this blog since I started last fall, you’ll probably remember how many books I collected during the local library sale. Well, the time has come again and I’ve been busy picking out some amazing reads.

wp-1461813052040.jpgFirst and foremost, I was able to get nearly one hundred comics for my son. Some of you may suffer through trying to get your children to read, like I do. This is my way of trying to motivate him to take his time and spend some of it doing something that I love. I want nothing more to connect with my son and if I have to do it with comics, than I have to do it that way.


Now I know this probably doesn’t look like a ton of books, but, these are just the stacks of books. I haven’t even made it a point to count how many I got. But I will say, I’m happy because I was able to find some really great books. Some are children’s books and some are just random ones that caught my eye. Here’s what I was able to find:

  1. That’s a nice stack of books. And I like that cover of Return of the King I see there. πŸ™‚ I think comics can be a great way to get kids reading, I read a ton of comics as a kid and believe it or not it improved my vocabulary- some of those comics had big words I’d never seen before. πŸ™‚

  2. I think its wonderful that you bought all of those comic books for your son. It still counts as reading, and its a smart approach to encouraging him. When I was much younger, a lot of what I wanted to read was discouraged. Now I get to read whatever I want, and I still feel like I am playing catch-up.
