Good morning. I hope you had a good week. Thanks for stopping by. It's been a very busy week for me in all aspects ~ reading, blogging and life in general. I feel like I accomplished a lot, though, so that's a nice feeling. First off, the reading. I finished reading Revenge: A Travis Mays Novel by Mark Young. I'll put up my review this week.
I also read The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox by Maggie O'Farrell. I actually read that one in just two days, over the weekend. The kids are getting to the point where they'll spend hours playing outside with their friends on the weekend, and instead of cleaning, as I should have been, I sat and read. It was so nice!
Finally, I read several Mercer Mayer books with my kids since my daughter's school had Mercer Mayer Day last week.
Last week was also Book Blogger Appreciation Week and I managed to participate almost every day with the following posts:
Bloggers who have inspired me
Finding and keeping community
How blogging affects reading
My essential blogging practices
And finally, I asked for advice on books to read this Fall, once all my review commitments are fulfilled. Please weigh in on what I should read from by TBR pile. I need to put my list together for the Fall Into Reading challenge!
I'm now reading The Homeplace Revisited by William Leverne Smith.
Next, I'll be reading The Sandburg Connection by Mark de Castrique. Then I'll move on to Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury for Banned Books Week, which starts on Saturday! I'll also be reading And Tango Makes Three by Peter Parnell and Justin Richardson to my kids. This picture book was the most challenged book in 2010.
