Booking Through Thursday
Since “Inspiration” is (or should) the theme this week … what is your reading inspired by?
My favorite type of reading is inspired by rest, relaxation and a trip outside of myself. I usually find myself with a sci-fi/fantasy book (I usually get all in the series at once so I can read straight through) to accomplish this. But lately I haven’t had a chance to do much reading because my two little men are changing and growing so quickly that our schedule is up in the air right now. If I do have any down time, I go for an easy read of intrigue or espionage. I usually find those to be quick and easy reads and better suited to reading until the book falls from my hand and I sleep.
I’ve recenetly tried reading magazines, just so I can get my reading in before bed. That includes Mother Earth News and whatever science, gardening, psychology or DIY mags Wubby grabs for me when she visits the library in town.
At the moment, the most reading I’m doing is research about FASD, Autism, attachment, sleep disorders/sleep solutions for toddlers, adoption, GERD, ages and stages, creative ideas for play and learning, mouth, cheek and tongue exercises for teaching toddlers to speak, crib recalls, new medical procedures, positive supports, cultural opportunities for Cree and Metis children, traditional storytelling books, and traditional spiritual and cultural practices, based in past teachings when the culture was strong, for immersing children in a currently battered and bruised culture without causing significant damage to their little lives.
And honestly, if I’m sitting and there is something within reach or eyesight, I will pick it up and read it!
