About

Hi there, I’m Kristy Lynn.

I’ve been a lifestyle blogger since 2007. This summer, I decided to create a space just for writing about my slightly obsessive book fetish. This site, Simply Good Reading, is what I created.

Simply Good Reading (SGR) is still a work in progress, so if you want to drop a suggestion or book title my way, I’m listening! You can always reach me at: [email protected].

Welcome to my book blog!
Hey there! I’m Kristy Lynn…

Why Do I Write About Reading?

Two reasons.

#1. I love books. I try to learn something new every day so I can be a better person. Reading well is an important avenue to living well, + I want to inspire as many people as I can to do both those things.

#2. Reading doesn’t come easily for everyone. I experienced this personally as a mother of two incredibly creative, dyslexic kids. In fact, only one of my five kids was an intuitive reader. The others took either a little patience, or tons (and years) of patience + hard work in order to learn to read. This blog is a space that I hope will offer encouragement, ideas, tips + inspiration for anyone struggling to teach a child to read, or wanting to read more, or better, themselves.

How Often Do I Read?

Every day.

I try to read to my kids every day too.

What Do I Do Besides Read?

Well, I’m a pastor’s wife.

I also homeschool my five kids, so being a mom is really the main thing I do besides reading (+ cleaning + laundry).

I write a lot too.

In fact, I love writing as much as I love reading.

I manage three blogs, including this one, + work as a content creator at FWMoms.com.

Oh, and I enjoy working out + running. (Sometimes I also sleep.)

Random Stuff

I’m a personality junkie. (Type 1 on the Enneagram, INTJ according to Myer’s Brigg’s.)

I can type about 60 wpm.

I have two daughters + three sons.

My oldest child graduated from Classical Conversations in May 2021.

I’ve been married to Jeremy for nearly 20 years.

Rainy days are my favorite.

What Do I NOT Like to Do?

I pretty much avoid talking on the phone unless I have to.

Sewing + anything tedious drives me crazy.

Sadly, I stink at gardening, although I adore plants and flowers.

Balancing a check book is probably my least favorite thing to do in the world. (I’m so grateful for online banking!)

What Do I Write About at SGR?

All kinds of nerdish delights, really. Book reviews + reading guides, curriculum reviews, gift guides for book lovers, tips for homeschooling with dyslexia, + random inspo on the reading life.

I’m so glad you’re here!
