We had a very fun day with friends, so I did not have time to do any writing. And I'm pretty tired now, so this will be brief.
I have completed several books from my Triple 8 Challenge. In the month of January, I read:
Writing Road to Reading 5th Rev Ed: The Spalding Method for Teaching Speech, Spelling, Writing, and Reading, Romalda Bishop Spalding and Mary Elizabeth North. Very epistemologically sound book about teaching reading to young kids. I thought it was extremely interesting and will probably incorporate some of the principles when it comes time to help my people learn to read (unless they do like I did and just suddenly begin reading, which would be a lot less effort for me).
The Leper's Return, Squire Throwleigh's Heir, and Belladonna at Belstone, all by Michael Jecks. Medieval murder mysteries. Entertaining and low-effort. Love the details about various aspects of life in the middle ages.
The No-Cry Sleep Solution for Toddlers and Preschoolers: Gentle Ways to Stop Bedtime Battles and Improve Your Childs Sleep by Elizabeth Pantley. I have read this book through again and am using some techniques with some success to gently detach Morgan from my backside at night. Go me.
I just started Cryptonomicon last night. I think I've made good progress on my Triple 8 Challenge. It's fun to have a list.
