Goosebumps #1: Welcome to the Dead House

I finished reading Goosebumps #1: Welcome to Dead House to Eliza last week, and she wanted to do a vlog post to share what she thought with you!

November Reads

November 2011 Reads

I never got around to posting my November Reads in December (most hectic month ever), so just pretend that I posted this a few weeks ago. Great.

October Reads

October 2011 Reads

I didn’t get through very many books this month. I usually read before bed, but I’ve been super exhausted. I’ve been falling asleep before I even get through a whole chapter sometimes.

Eliza’s Reads: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Eliza's Reads: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Eliza and I have moved on to reading chapter books together before she goes to bed. We read picture books every other night (so she can pick up word recognition and learn to read on her own), but three or four nights a week Potter is king. Eliza, who is … Read the rest
