How would you answer this?

Do you read things aloud to your kids that you and they think are just “ok”? Or do you stop books in the middle if you aren’t feeling it? I want reading aloud to be our primary source of learning, but then get stuck in making sure we are doing the “subjects” and sometimes we end up reading stuff we don’t like as much. Should I just let this go and read what we want? All that we read is high quality literature (fiction, historical fiction, etc). We tend to not like “nature books” or plain history books as much as fiction.

If a book was tedious to me, then I quit reading it unless the kids really wanted me to continue.

    There are enough books that if the one you are reading is boring or scaredy or mediocre that it can be laid aside for another that will fit the bill.
