Summer Reading Challenge

My on-line friend, De'Etta, is hosting a Summer Reading Challenge over at her blog. It's a fun way to get some of those books read that I have had stacked up forever & to participate in a fun challenge as well. While I love to read & I do every day, it's fun to share lists & to see what others like to read. Click here for the official rules: Choosing Joy

  1. I've never read Ellis Peters....hmmmm.....and there is Turansky again...I'm really going to need to get one of his books. LOL

  2. We have also been reading Little House books this year and just finished the Nate Saint book. I ended up with a study guide for that one so we can do extra activities with it. I am contemplating whether to add my read alouds to my list. I might do so as we have been reading some interesting books.

  3. P.S. Oh and I just reserved your two history read alouds. They will be a perfect tie in to our recent studies. Thanks for the ideas!

  4. Oooh, I think I read all of the Cadfael Mysteries. The historical detail is really good. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did. She's an excellent writer. I must go and visit Shrewsbury one day!


  5. Looks like an awesome bunch of books! I wish I could commit to reading specific books ahead of time, but it just wouldn't work for me!

  6. The Francine Rivers trilogy is my all time favorite! Enjoy!!!!

  7. Those Ellis Peters books look interesting...looking forward to a review.


Oh thank goodness! I'm not here all alone. Thanks for leaving me a comment. It helps that I'm not always talking to myself. Right? Hello?
