I’ve read a lot of novels lately. Most of them have been more or less what I call “brain candy” – not requiring a lot of thinking. I wanted something a little more meaty by still in the novel genre. So I went back to one of my favourite authors for novels – E. Phillips Oppenheim. The last couple of books I’ve read of his did not seem to be up to his usual quality, however this book totally restored my faith in Oppenheim’s story-spinning ablities. Jeanne of the Marshes kept me wondering as to whether or not a murder had actually been committed and whether or not the millionaire heiress was really a millionaire heiress. You can get this free on your Kindle!
I couldn’t add any links this week because my internet wouldn’t cooperate with me.
17-year-old daughter – The Three Musketeers by Alexander Dumas
15-year-old son – The Wooden Horse by Eric Williams. This is an awesome book told by one of the escapees about a successful escape from the same camp of “Great Escape” fame.
13-year-old son – Monster by Frank Perretti. This is a good one if you’d like another perspective on the question of whether or not Sasquatch is real. ☺
11-year-old daughter – The Victors by Jack Cavanaugh
9-year-old daughter – Dennis the Menace cartoon books. She bought herself several at a 50% off book sale that we went to as a family outing. Yes, we are that family that considers a book sale an outing.
7-year-old son – Dennis the Menace cartoon books
4-year-old son – Ethan and I haven’t done a lot of reading lately because he has just been passionate about colouring and doing his school workbooks. If only all of my children had his enthusiasm for school work. Of course, maybe they would if it was matching, colouring, cutting and pasting. ☺
