Well, my older son returned to school last week, and my younger son ended up missing the whole week because of a severe case of bronchitis and a sinus infection! Today is the first time in weeks that they've both been in school (hurray!) - I am really looking forward to life returning to normal this week (or as normal as it ever gets...)
- I finished reading Cleopatra's Daughter by Michelle Moran and enjoyed a very lively discussion with my book group last week. Everyone enjoyed it.
- I am now reading Pathfinder, Orson Scott Card's latest release for teens/YA. So far, it is just as good as Jamie told me it was! It's a time traveling story with lots of secrets and twists from one of our favorite authors.
- I just started listening to 365 Thank Yous: The Year a Simple Act of Daily Gratitude Changed My Life by John Gralik on audio. I'm only on chapter 2, but it has already grabbed my attention. I'm a big fan of gratitude :)
- My husband, Ken, finished Pirate Latitudes by Michael Crichton. This was Crichton's last published novel; the manuscript was discovered after his death. Ken said it was good but different than the typical Crichton approach of taking some new scientific tidbit and building a story around it. Instead, this novel is an old-fashioned pirate story.
- Jamie, 16, continued reading some old favorites with The Bartimaeus Trilogy, Book Three: Ptolemy's Gate by Jonathan Stroud. He loves this series.
- Craig, 13, was very sick all last week but started working on make-up work this weekend. He's reading an O. Henry short story, A Retrieved Reformation, for his English class.
What are you and your family reading this week?
(What are you reading Monday is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.)
The only good thing about turning the clocks ahead? It means spring is on the way, as do these snowdrops blooming in my neighborhood. Now can I go back to bed??
