Week in Review

Good morning. It's Monday and I'm actually posting this on time!! It's been two weeks since I did a week in review, and I've actually posted several reviews since then. Yay!

What I'm Reading
I'm now reading Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese, which is my October book club book. I've just started it and am a bit concerned that it's so long. But I've heard good things, so hopefully I can make it through the whole thing. I'm also reading The Funny Adventures of Little Nani by Cinta Garcia de la Rosa. I'll be reviewing that children's book tomorrow.

Up Next for Me
I'm considering reading Infidel by Ayaan Hirsi Ali for Blog Action Day, which is October 16. If I don't get to that, I will probably re-review Half the Sky by Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn. The theme for this year's Blog Action Day is Human Rights.

I also have a few review books remaining to read. I think I have 6-7 of them now, some of which are children's books to read with my kids.

What C is Reading
C has read a few books over the past couple weeks. He read Dumbstruck and Egghead by Karla Oceanak. He really loves that series. He also read Dragonbreath: Lair of the Bat Monster by Ursula Vernon. He is now reading Eragon by Christopher Paolini. He also is going to participate in Battle of the Books at his school, so he'll be reading all of these books by the end of the year:

I'm planning on reading all of them as well. There will be more to read too. We have The Tale of Despereaux coming from Paperback Swap. Then he'll have a couple more books to read once his team starts meeting in January.

What M is Reading
M and I finally finished Charlotte's Web by E.B. White. I have to admit that I really don't think I ever read that book before. Isn't that absolutely crazy??!! We both really enjoyed it.

  1. Wow, you have been busy!! Must feel good to be catching up!

    I enjoyed Cutting for Stone - it is long, but it's a captivating story. I hadn't heard of Blog Action Day before so I will check that out. I read Infidel for one of my book groups years ago, and it is a stunning book. I definitely recommend it.

    Wow, good for C! That is a great stack of books - sounds like fun, too!

    I can;t believe you've never read Charlotte's Web before! So glad you got to it. I read it when I was a kid, and we read it aloud with our boys, but we all really enjoyed listening to it on audio, read by EB White himself.

    Enjoy your books this week -
