I think our school motto could be summed up with “Read Good Books, Often.”
I purposely seek out quality literature that will not only be enjoyable to read, but will feed us intellectually and spiritually.
Our reading basket usually contains several books, and we rotate through two or three each day, reading at least one chapter in each. Here are the titles we are currently working through.
