I'm going to start "post-it" versions of my old reading-round-up. In other words, once in a while I'm just going to jot down laundry lists of things I'm reading and thinking about...what's just been read, what's in progress.
I'm also adding lists of books we've been reading with the sweet girl, either in story times or family reading times. And I'm adding a list of current schooling resources.
*Jackie and Me by Dan Gutman
*Murder in the Vicarage by Agatha Christie (this and The Body in the Library currently in progress are both re-reads; I'm comparing them to the recent Miss Marple films starring Geraldine McEwan which we've been watching on DVD
*The Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder by Joanne Fluke
*The Strawberry Shortcake Murder (ditto...what can I say? It's winter!)
And a couple of interesting articles: Anthony Esolen's essay "Davey's Song" (On the Divine Music of an Autistic Son) in the recent issue of Touchstone, and Deanna Overstreet's "The Gospel According to Jane" (yes, Austen) in the current issue of Theology Today
*Mudhouse Sabbath by Lauren Winner
*The Irresistible Revolution by Shane Claiborne (almost done...really!)
*A Philosophy of Education by Charlotte Mason
*The Children's Blizzard by David Laskin
*What Will Harry Do? by Janet Batchler (reflections on Book 7 of the Harry Potter series)
On the Sweet Girl's bookshelf...
Her Current favorites:
*The Tale of the Flopsy Bunnies by Beatrix Potter
*The Ruth Ainsworth Book (great find, and with Shirley Hughes illustrations!)
*The Trouble With Baby by Marisabina Russo
*One Hundred Ways to Count to 100
*The Snow Globe Family (book's in her room, and she's sleeping, so I'll have to check the author later...)
And we just finished 'B' is for Betsy by Carolyn Heywood
