Foodie Book Club

September 6, 2018

Did you know September 6th is National Read a Book Day?? If I’m being honest, the vast majority of books I read these days are books for littles. It’s no secret I love my story time with Charlie, but part of that is my own love of books.

I used to participate in a book club, but that group no longer meets and I find I miss the great meals and conversations with those ladies (and maybe the wine).

These days I find it easier to listen to books instead of read them. Listening to books is definitely a different experience than reading them, but I’m still getting lost in the stories which will hold me over until these busy days pass. I use Audible which has been easier than getting myself to the local library as of late.

I am drawn to a wide variety of books – historical fiction, memoirs, though my favorites are cookbooks and self improvement books. I really enjoy a memoir with high quality recipes** As Charlie gets older, I’m looking forward to incorporating books into our snacks or meal times. I’m thinking Hungry Caterpillar themed snacks, a dragon taco party, and the ultimate dream- a Harry Potter Halloween party.

It’s no doubt that the more we integrate lessons and concepts into our child’s day, the stronger their understanding and the more fun we all have. What better way to engage than over wonderful stories and sitting around the table? Here is a peek into my bookshelves or audible library.
