April Book of Choice Giveaway – Open Worldwide

April Book of Choice

2017 saw me resolve to make the time and READ MORE BOOKS! My goal is a realistic 12 books (one book each month). Participating in the monthly Book of Choice Giveaway Hop has helped me to keep on track. I’m happy to say that I read TWO books in March, and I FINISHED my fourth book of the year the other day, The Fall of Five by Pittacus Lore (which is the fourth book of the I Am Number Four Series). April will see me continue my journey with the fifth book in the series, The Revenge of Seven.

Children’s Books I Think Every Child Needs

Children’s Books

One of the first things I bought my first son (other than the necessary essentials) after he was born were books, and I still have some of them almost 23 years later. Books are an important part of my life, and I have tried to instill that love in all of my boys (to varying degrees of success). Children’s books are a door to learning, imagination, and fantasy. Although there are many children’s books I love and enjoy, I have my favourites that I consider “must-haves”, books that I can’t live without, that are timeless, and that I believe inspire young readers.

February Book of Choice Giveaway Hop

February Book of Choice

My personal goal for 2017 is to READ MORE! I always PLAN on reading, but life ends up getting in the way, or I’m too tired by the time the boys go to bed to concentrate, so I end up Netflixing instead (Netflixing (verb): the act of binge watching shows on Netflix). Last year I only managed to finish a couple books. This year, I want to try to read at least 12 books

One of my favourite type of books to get my kids are personalized story books. They always love reading books with their names in them. It takes the joy of reading up a notch, and makes it almost magical.

I have some really hard people to shop for on my Christmas list. My 22 year old son is almost impossible as he has everything he needs, doesn’t want much, and what he does want he can afford to buy it himself.

My 19 year old is easier, but he never really asks for anything. This year all he has asked for are some books, new pillows and sheets and a new Build-A-Bear for his stuffed animal collection.

KD Novelties Personalized BooksI have to say that I was not quite sure what to expect from KD Novelties Personalized Books. I wondered how interactive the story would be and how Riley would become a “star” of the story.
