Welcome back to another Monday! Thanks for stopping by. I had a great week of reading and relaxing during our last beach trip of the summer. C starts 1st grade on Wednesday. It's hard to believe summer is almost over. Speaking of that, if you're participating in my Summer Reading Challenge, be sure to check in at the Month Two Recap.
Last week, I did a lot of reading. I read and reviewed Gerry Tales by Gerry Boylan, and The Stepford Wives by Ira Levin. That one was for the Birth Year Challenge. I have to say I'm enjoying reading books from the year I was born. It's an interesting experience!
I also read Letter to My Daughter by Maya Angelou last week, but haven't written my review yet. That will be up later this week. And on the way home from the beach, I was bored and found The Curious Case of Benjamin Button by F. Scott Fitzgerald on the free e-reader I have on my BlackBerry. So I read that as my husband drove us home. I'll write a review for that one later this week.
Finally, I wrote up short reviews of two picture books my daughter has been enjoying this past week. You can read those in my What My Children Are Reading post.
I'm currently reading Audience, Relevance, and Search by James Mathewson, Frank Donatone and Cynthia Fishel. I had started it last week, but forgot to throw it into my suitcase before we went to the beach, so I'm back to it this week!
I think my next book will be Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See. This has been on my Up Next list before and I always manage to read something else in its place, so we'll see if I really get to it this time! I also have How to Sue a Telemarketer: A Manual For Restoring Peace On Earth One Phone Call At A Time by Steve Ostrow. That one is for a book tour that I'm participating in on September 3rd, but I may read it next week.
