“Timing is everything, in education as in many other fields. It’s not enough to teach well. You have to teach well to kids who are ready to learn, kids who are developmentally ‘ripe’ for learning.”

BTT: Numbers

Some people read one book at a time. Some people have a number of them on the go at any given time, perhaps a reading in bed book, a breakfast table book, a bathroom book, and so on, which leads me to…

1. Are you currently reading more than one book?
2. If so, how many books are you currently reading?
3. Is this normal for you?
4. Where do you keep your current reads?

I usually read several books at a time. First, I usually have something fun to read, a book that will entertain me. Second, I almost always have a classic that I am working my way through. Those don't always grab my attention though, so sometimes I have to set a schedule for myself and read for a certain amount of time each day. Third, I usually have some type of educational book that I am reading. Either a book about homeschooling, organic living, parenting, or something of that nature. Fourth, I read the scriptures or a church article everyday. I also will occasionally add a magazine into the mix, or a church book. So I guess I have a lot on my plate. ;) The stuff I am reading is all over the place - mostly the living room, bedroom, or kitchen.

You sound like me. Whenever someones asks what I'm reading, I always tell them the classic that I'm working on for book club. But I usually also have an educational book that I'm working on too and I always have scriptures that I'm reading with my family and I'm always working on a different childrens novel with each of my kids and we have story time where I read a novel to all of my kids. So in truth, I'm always reading at least 6 things.
