Thoreau went to the woods to suck the marrow out of life; here, I hope to drain every drop from the books I read, rather than tossing them aside and saying vaguely, “Oh yes, I read that once,” when they come up in conversation.
I’m a Christ-follower, a wife, a mother, a wannabe novelist (with a complete manuscript, no less!), and—of course—a reader. Stick around, poke around, speak up, and enjoy…and definitely recommend your favorites, because my mile-long to-be-read list could always be longer!
Helen Keller & a Library Visit
I haven’t finished any books since I last posted, but I am really, really enjoying Helen Keller’s autobiography, The Story of My Life. I highly recommend it to anyone; the language is rich and the stories are interesting–much more so than any other autobiography I’ve read. I’ll write more on it when I finish, but for now it’s a great treat.
Yesterday I realized that I had overdue books…oops. So, Pookie and I took a trip to the library, with the intent of getting a few board books for her. I did that…but Somehow, I ended up with a stack of my own…
The second and third Felicity books from American girl for lunch time readalouds.
The Celtic Knot, another “Girls of Many Lands” novel from American Girl (notice a theme here?)
Black Heels to Tractor Wheels by Ree Drummond
Run Like a Mother by Dimity McDowell and Sarah Bowen Shea
The Mountains Bow Down by Sibella Giorello
A big fat cookbook and a bunch of Helen Oxenbury books for Pookie
A lot of fun, easy reads before September sets in…looking forward to them!
