Quirky Bookworm: 7 Tips for Creating a Love of Reading in Your Kids

I'm guest posting at The Art of Simple today!

From the post:

I’ve always been a bookworm. I think reading is good for the brain, the imagination, and the soul. The possibility that I could raise a kid that doesn’t like to read is bizarre. But, there’s always that chance, so I purposely try to encourage Eleanor to love reading.

Head on over to The Art of Simple to read the rest.
If you missed it, here's what I've been reading, including my favorite, Deborah Crombie. And, don't forget that both giveaways from last week close tonight! If you want to win The Making of Us or The Joy Brigade, today is your last day.

We're catching up on a few pre-moving house items this morning (caulking the tub, sorting through clothes, etc) - and then we're off to swim and grill with my in-laws tonight.
