We're saving your life this summer with 8 easy hacks to simplify your life! #3- READING HACKS!

  • How to Hack Reading:
  1. Read more than one thing at a time.
  2. You have permission to skip, skim or soak in the book.
  3. Order from the library because it's budget friendly.
  • How to hack getting your kids to read:
  1. Take them into a local book store to wonder and find something on their own.
  2. Be hands off and let them try a book you wouldn't pick for them.
  3. Be hands in, as far as being aware and coach them without them knowing.
  4. Don't correct their interpretation but be willing to listen with excitement.
  • Christie and Lisa-Jo are leaving books in other places around the house so they can read at any moment.
  • Lisa-Jo has a genius hack with the Kindle APP! Did you know about it?
  • Embrace Audio Books, like Christie has, while her family travels or as she has time alone.
  • Christie reminds us that reading isn't just to learn but a way to learn new ways of seeing, new ways of creativity and new ways of enjoying ordinary life.
  • Christie's daughter is reading The Wings of Fire series by Tui T. Sullivan.
