Hello and a happy Wednesday to you! So, for longer than I care to think about we put Atlee's and Shea's books on a bookshelf. Atlee loves to read. Atlee would look for a specific book and pull out half the books from the shelf in her quest. The discarded books would lie (lay?) on the floor all discarded until I came along and picked them up. At some point I read this suggestion in a magazine and it has made such a difference. Younger kids have trouble putting books back on a bookshelf. It's a coordination thing. The smart mommy will instead offer them a box for books. Now when she is done with a book, she actually puts it back in the box. (OK, OK, it's a fifty-fifty shot, but it's better than the odds I had going before.) Not having a giant pile of discarded books on the floor so works for me. Regular readers (ummm...Judi, I mean you) who are not here from Shannon's Rocks in My Dryer should head over there for other handy ideas.
