Catholic Reading Challenge (#CathLIT2019) and a Printable Worksheet!
Happy fourth day of Christmas! You'd better believe we celebrate ALL the days of Christmas around here (because otherwise I'd never get to the plans I'd made for Advent...)! Today we've been working on a family activity of sewing the aprons that were supposed to be made by me and wrapped up under the tree. Tomorrow: mailing Christmas cards to grandparents. Next week: making a gingerbread house. It's obviously better this way, right??
One of my very favorite Christmas season activities is finishing up my last few books of the year and making plans for the following year. Since 2015 (I think?), I've been attempting the Modern Mrs. Darcy Reading Challenge and generally failing epically somewhere around August. I'm trying again this year (because I love it!!), but to switch things up a little, I'll also be attempting to read 19 "Catholic" books in 2019, along with Haley Stewart at Carrots for Michaelmas. Anyone else trying that this year?
I created a little checklist for myself (because checklists are awesome), and since I went to all the trouble of formatting and so on, I thought I'd share it with all of you. I think you should be able to just click the image below to download and print it. If it doesn't work, let me know. Maybe I can email it to you?
Finally, help me out here. What books should I check out in 2019? (Not just Catholic ones! :) Do any of my author friends have new books releasing? What 2018 books should I read quickly before they win Newbery honors in January? What were your favorite reads of 2018?
