It's the Monday after the Super Bowl and it's dark and dreary here. We had a big party last night and I will admit I'm hurting a bit this morning! I didn't do much reading on the weekend, but I did watch two movies that were based on books. The Maze Runner was the first, but I wasn't crazy about the movie. The other movie was This is Where I Leave You and I have to say I laughed as much as I did when I read that book. It was great.

I finished reading The Shining and I also finished Gathering Blue by Lois Lowry. Then I started Gooseberry Island by Steven Manchester. I haven't gotten very far yet, but plan to devote more time to reading this week.
M, who is almost 8, and I started reading The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis.
C, who is 10, will start reading The Time Machine by H.G. Wells this week for school.
