I have too many of them at the current moment, all but for good reason.
I recently read The Virginian by Owen Wister on my Kindle. I really enjoyed it. Was a pre-read for Matthias and am not sure whether I'll have him read it next year or not, but it's definately worth a look in the later teen years. Violet will probably read it soon.
I just finished The Perfect Storm by Sebastian Junger. An exciting fast paced book of which they made a movie, eons ago, but the book contanined many statistics about the commercial swordfishing industry that the movie left out. All in all a pretty good storyline alltogether, considering it was based on a true event.
Currently, I am reading China Court by Rumer Godden. It's starting out well and I truly enjoy her writing style.
And in no particular reading order, here is one of my stacks (some already read) ::
*Blackwater by Eve Bunting *Read in about two hours, then passed to Violet!
*Above and Beyond by Susan Bonners *Read this one in a quick afternoon as well, Seamus should like it.
The Shakespeare Stealer by Gary Blackwood ~ Might be our next read aloud!
The Journal of Sean Sullivan (A Dear America Book) ~ Pre-read for Seamus
The Wanderer by Sharon Creech (Violet said this one was really good).
The Little Bookroom by Eleanor Farjean ~ Adorable little collection!
Homecoming by Cynthia Voight
Picking up the Pieces by Mary Sheepshanks
A New Song by Jan Karon
Lessons from Blackberry Inn by Karen Andreola (always love to read her stuff)
