This reading wrap-up is dedicated to all of the moms who are trying to get some reading in during the first month of school, especially if you are also an educator. It can be a tough season for reading.
This month my finished book list was short because there was a ton going on, per usual. But I am poly reading a few books via audiobook. For anyone who feels the pressure to read a certain number of books each month or whatever your goal is, just know there are all types of seasons of reading. Sometimes you have the time to read everything you want and sometimes you have to slow down.
Oh and yes, I include children’s books on my reading goals list! Those books are good and they come in at 40 pages average, plus I spend prime evening reading time reading them on repeat to my kids…so they count! Lol!
