Welcome back! Thanks for stopping by. I hope you've had a good week. Mine was a little crazy at work but life is good. And I got a lot of reading done last week!
I finished Clout: The Art and Science of Influential Web Content by Colleen Jones. It was quite informative. I'll get my review up for that later this week.
I also finished Flat Spin by David Freed, a fun mystery novel. You can read my review by clicking on the title.
I'm going to start including my son's reading in my weekly updates. He finished the fourth Harry Potter book last night. He liked it but doesn't seem too distraught that he's not allowed to read the rest of the series at this point (maybe in a year when he turns 9). We also watched the third movie. I think it may have been a bit too much for my 5 year old! She said she wasn't scared but I wouldn't recommend it for young kids. The next few movies are PG-13 so we'll be holding off on those for a few years.
I didn't get a chance to link up to What My Child is Reading on the weekend, so I'll tell you what my daughter has been reading too. Her school had a Scholastic Book Fair last week, so we got some new books for her. She got two cute early readers: Pinkalicious Pinkie Promise by Victoria Karr, and Mac and Cheese by Sarah Weeks. They're both at a good, challenging level for her. She also got a fun picture book: The New Bear at School by Carrie Weston.
I'm now reading A Lovely Indecent Departure by Steven Lee Gilbert, a local author here in NC. My son is now reading Darth Paper Strikes Back by Tom Angleberger, the second in the Origami Yoda series.
Next, I'll be reading Under Oath by Margaret McLean.
What are you reading this week? This meme is being hosted by Sheila at Book Journey, so hop over there if you'd like to see what others are reading too.
