We all enjoyed reading this week, but not much new:
- I finished A Soft Place to Land by Susan Rebecca White, a novel about sisters, and enjoyed it very much.
- With a train trip to NYC last week, I chose my next book based entirely on size and weight! Blind Descent by Nevada Barr is a nice, light paperback. Besides, I always enjoy her unique suspense novels that take place in National Parks. The main character, Anna Pigeon, is a park ranger, and this one takes place in Carlsbad Caverns. I'm a little more than halfway through it.
- Jamie, 16, is still reading The Stand by Stephen King. He's loving it, as we knew he would, but he just doesn't have much time for fun reading during the school year - too much homework!
- Jamie is also still reading Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer for his American Lit class - I loved the movie based on this book.
- Craig, 12, is still reading Crispin: The Cross of Lead by Avi for his English class and enjoying it.
- My husband, Ken, finished The 19th Wife by David Ebershoff. He was fascinated by this combination historical fiction/murder mystery novel, as I knew he would be!
- For a change of pace after that thick, complex novel, Ken has started a new middle-grade novel, Half Brother by Kenneth Oppel, with a unique plot about a family that adopts a baby chimp and treats him like a child.
Finally, though Banned Book Week is now over, you might want to check out my post about the great podcast I listened to this weekend - besides their podcast on banned books, they do a fabulous book podcast each week.
What are you and your family reading this week?
