At the end of last term, I decided to set myself the goal of reading more. I used to be an avid reader, but as life went on, became "Too busy to read anymore." I did however, have plenty of time to check facebook and instagram hourly. So these holidays, I gave myself the goal of reducing time spent on my phone, and increasing time spent reading. Between mothering and catching up with friends and family, I managed to make a start on my goal. Here is the first book I read:
I chose this book, because I am a new mother of a baby boy. It is a collection of short stories, all written to highlight how challenging it is to grow up as a boy. The stories both engaged me and horrified me and I turned to my partner stating that our son would be home schooled. It would be a great book for young men aged 12+, especially those exploring what it means to be a boy/man.
