So, here we are...Monday again, with another snow storm predicted this week...and it's not even February yet! We all did some good reading last week:
- I finished a book for my neighborhood book group this week, Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain by Oliver Sacks. Parts of it were slow-going for me because I know nothing at all about music, but some chapters were fascinating. I'm interested to hear what everyone else thought at our meeting Wednesday.
- Now I'm reading Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater. I realize I must be the last person on earth to read this top-seller from 2009, but I'm just not normally into the paranormal romance genre. Despite that, I was enticed by all the amazing reviews of this book, and so far, I'm enjoying it very much.
- I'm still listening to the audio book, The Three Weissmann's of Westport by Cathleen Schine and enjoying it more and more.
- My husband, Ken, is reading Broken Prey by John Sandford, a paperback thriller he borrowed from his dad.
- Jamie, 16, re-read Leviathan this week, and then read Behemoth. He enjoyed both very much. He's having trouble picking his next book because there are so many here that he wants to read! I think he and I will make a trip to Borders today to spend our Christmas gift cards.
- Craig, 13, gave up temporarily on the Ted Bell Time Pirate series - he was just having trouble getting into it, even though he loved the first book, Nick of Time. Instead, he started his other Christmas gift, The Last Hunt by Bruce Coville. The Unicorn Chronicles is his other favorite series, and so far, he's really enjoying this last book in the series.
What are you and your family reading this week?
