Lots of reading going on here with school being out. Well let’s face it, even when school is on there’s lots of reading going on here. 🙂
Myself – I read a Grace Livingston Hill book this week that I downloaded for free on my Kindle…The City of Fire. Grace Livingston Hill started the Christian romance genre. When my grandfather was in a major car accident and had to spend months in the hospital he was so taken with the idea of a Christian romance that he read as many as he could get. This one had a different twist because the main character is a twelve-year-old boy so, of course, the romantic interest wasn’t his.
14-year-old daughter – Lady Vernon and Her Daughter – a take-off on a little-known work of Jane Austen’s
13-year-old son – The Endless Steppe (a Jewish girl taken with her family by the Russians and sent to Siberia during World War II) and The Wild Children
11-year-old son – The Long Winter by Laura Ingalls Wilder
9-year-old daughter – She’s on a Beverly Cleary kick with Ramona the Pest and Henry and Beezus.
7-year-old daughter – She’s been reading a lot to her two little brothers. They enjoy the Little Jewel books from the Rod and Staff Publishers and The Golden Books.
