The 3 books rocking our Family Togetherness Reading Separate Books Time

Weirdly, our entire family is happy with the books that we’re reading right now. This never happens. Not the reading part. Reading is constantly breaking out over here. We even have an official name for it: Family Togetherness Reading Different Books Time.

It’s the all of us being happy with our books part that has me thrown enough to blog about it. Most of the time, two of us are happy with our books, while the third (usually me) regularly interrupts the happy readers by asking for book recommendations in increasingly plaintive tones because the book(s) she plucked for the day is (are) deeply disappointing in some way.

To make things even more remarkable, all three of us are currently reading books that are part of an extended series.

Having this happen is somewhat like seeing a total lunar eclipse during a blue moon on a night when Mercury, Venus, Saturn, Mars, and Jupiter are all lined up. That’s how rare it is.

Here are the three book series that are keeping the three of us glued to our reading couches this weekend.

Although we are all well past the first books in our respective series, I used the covers of the first books in case you are in need of your next great read.

Happy reading day!

About Shala Howell

I spent two decades helping companies like Bell Labs, Juniper Networks, and a genetic testing company that was later acquired by CVS translate some of the world’s most complicated concepts into actionable, understandable English. Now I'm working on a much harder problem -- fostering children’s curiosity and engagement in the scientific, artistic, and linguistic world that surrounds them. The first book in my Caterpickles Parenting Series, What’s That, Mom?, focuses on how to use public art to nurture children’s curiosity in the world around them. My next book, Did Dinosaurs Have Belly Buttons?, is currently planned for release in 2018. In the meantime, you can find me blogging about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, chatting about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, and tweeting about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.
