Reminder: As you can see by my countdown counter on the right, the time is nearly here for my 3rd giveaway. If you haven’t yet left a comment on my February 18 post to enter the draw, please don’t delay. I will again use Random.org name picker the evening of March 9 (Wednesday) to select a winner. The next morning I will be announcing here who will be receiving my giveaway this month! Go HERE to check it out.
I’m continuing to read lots of picture books this month – and loving it! On Saturday my husband and I stopped in at the library to collect more of the books on my list. They always send me an email when more are in and being held for me, so I am visiting the library more than I have in a long time.
This trip I came home with seventeen more books. 🙂 Now I have on lend forty-five picture books. Later that day we had visitors, one being a twelve-year-old who enjoyed reading many in my stack of books.

If you are a reader, do you change it up once in a while with a picture book or any other genre from your usual?
Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings! 🙂
I try to mix up my reading. I read a classic, then a children´s book, then a contemporary adult, then a YA etc. I buy many picture books for the little ones in my life and often read them before I send them off! Have fun reading that stack of books!!
I mix up my reading as well. I often can be seen waiting for my appointment, or during one, reading a children’s book. I’m sure people must wonder at my choices. haha I’m also one who reads picture books before giving them away. They’re so wonderful! Why should children have all the fun?
Now the ReFoReMo challenge has moved into the next stage – reading five picture books a day. It’s a chore but … I’ll manage somehow. 😉

I don’t think wonder at your choice but are envious of your choice!! Of course you will manage.
Picture books are WONDERFUL! I read one today called The Boy Who Loved Math: The Improbable Life of Paul Erdös. (Erdös is pronounced airdish.) What a fabulous book about an amazing man!
I’ve also discovered there’s much more to picture books, and writing them, than it may seem at first glance.
Fun! I read a good variety of picture books, middle grade, and some YA.
Yes, I know you do, Erik. You’re well-versed in books for the younger to youngest set. 🙂 You do a fantastic job of reviewing those books, too, on your blog.
