From September 2006 to September 2007 the kids and I tried to keep track of the books we read. Each time we completed a book we made a paper ring and added it to our paper chain. We finished the year with somewhere around 200 books read. This included picture books and chapter books. Because of the age of our kids we read a variety of books from board books to about middle school level.
We were recently cleaning out our homeschool room and decided it was time to recycle our paper chain, but wanted to keep the memory of the accomplishment in a photo.
The boys would hang the chain from upstairs and it would still leave a large pile of paper chains on the floor below.
This year we're not keeping track, but we're still busily reading.
