Weekly Reading Recap



Good morning. I hope you've had a good week. I actually had a great week. It was my son's spring break, so I took some time off each day to hang out with my kids and relax. Then we took off to Myrtle Beach for a three-day weekend. It was cool, but we still made it to the beach, mini golfing, and even stopped to explore the USS North Carolina battleship on the way home yesterday. It was so much fun!

As far as reading goes, I read Drinking from the Fire Hose: Making Smarter Decisions without Drowning in Information by Christopher J. Frank and Paul F. Magnone. I need to write that review, and another review for one of the books I read last week.

Last week, I wrote a review for If Walls Could Talk by Lucy Worsley. I also shared reviews of a couple poetry books I've been reading with my kids.

I published my March Month in Review. And I'm hosting a giveaway for the participants of my Non-Fiction Non-Memoir Reading Challenge. If you're participating in the challenge, be sure to check it out!

  4. I'm looking forward to hearing about Drinking from the Firehose - it sounds intriguing, and I would love some tips on how to deal with the overload of information!

    I think you will like Devil in the White City - it is very well-written and fascinating, a combination suspense novel and historical fiction, only it's all true!

    Glad you enjoyed your getaway - it sounds like fun!

  6. I have The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe book series. I started Prince Caspian a few years ago but haven't finished it yet; Which is surprising even to me because it wasn't easy to put down.
