I’m really behind on my reading goal.. 1/36.. and the one book I read was the Little Prince with tons of illustrations! Jacob won’t read with me, so I need to find other ways to stay motivated. Can you believe he used to work at Better World Books? :P I’m joining in on Megan Stroup’s Semi-Charmed Book Challenge! Hopefully, it will give me the extra motivation that I need. :)
