Reading has slowed down since vacation ended:
- Jamie, 15, is still reading Firestarter by Stephen King. Since we got home, video and computer games have sucked him in and reduced his reading time!
- Craig, 12, who doesn't like to read much in the summer anyway, was getting nervous about his required summer reading for school, so he set aside his Hardy Boys book and has started reading Sounder by William H. Armstrong. I never read this classic myself, so maybe I'll read it when he's done.
- I also set aside one book for another this week, something I don't generally like to do. With my two main book groups on summer hiatus, I've been in book discussion withdrawal! So, I decided to read my library's selection for their July discussion (this Wednesday) - The Sunday Philosopher's Club by Alexander McCall Smith. It's not my usual type of book, but I'm enjoying it. It's a mystery set in Scotland, with lots of philosophical musings.
- My husband, Ken, finished his father's day gift, 61 Hours by Lee Child, one of his favorite thriller authors. He just started Everywhere That Mary Went by Lisa Scottoline, which I read during vacation - lots of book trading goes on in our house!
What are you and your family reading this week?
