What We're Reading

So is this a great idea for an easy, gone-on-vacation post, or what? Thanks to my friend at Homemade Mama, who gave me the idea when she asked what Bantam17 and I were reading in the pictures in this post!

So what's everybody reading currently?


Bantam3: The Little Engine That Could (ad nauseum)

Chicklet5: The Secret Garden (a Troll picture book abridgement)

Bantam9: Mr. Popper's Penguins. His bathroom reading, though, is Calvin & Hobbes, Garfield, and The Far Side--over and over and over and over....

Bantam13: Harry Potter (the 5th book, the first time)

Blondechick15: Harry Potter (the 6th book, the third time)

Bantam 17: The Silmarillion (Tolkien), Dragon Avenger (E. Knight), The Cross and the Switchblade (Wilkerson--a leftover Sonlight curriculum selection)

Mama Hen: The Island of the World (O’Brien), Beyond Smells and Bells (Galli), No: Why Kids—of All Ages—Need to Hear It and Ways Parents Can Say It (Walsh)

Papa Rooster: The Living Witness of the Holy Mountain (Golitzin), A Night in the Desert of the Holy Mountain (Metropolitan of Nafpaktos Hierotheos), Magic Lantern Guide to the Nikon D300 (Stafford), The How of Happiness (Lyubomirsky)

Hmmmm, very telling....

Jeannie -

Thanks for sharing. I love knowing what trusted friends are reading. Although I've got an 80 book backlog at the moment...

Tell Papa Rooster that I am VERY impressed that he is reading books by authors that I can't even fathom how to pronounce their names! :o)

Amy--

I wondered if anyone would comment on those authors! They're all Greek Orthodox guys. So...Greek to me, too!
