As the remodel has progressed and school work increased reading in August declined. I found myself only able to read a chapter or so first thing in the morning and last thing at bed time. That’s okay though, as I did make it through two gems! The stack will be reordered and added to for September!
The Antelope in the Living Room by Melanie Shankle This book was a delightful piece of comic relief as my home continued the craziness of kitchen & bathroom remodel and sending the kids off to new school situations.
Sheba’s Song by J.A. Harbison ~ A very delightful story of a young girl growing up and thriving despite the hard struggles faced by girls in poverty stricken areas of India and her American sponsor, a farmer in Iowa. I have been encouraged by this book in my own letter writing, feeling as though I have a better understanding of the lives of the girls and young man we sponsor in India.
Just a note on the American Voices. That is a book that I have been reading from for a couple of years. Last week I put it back on my nightstand again and the plan is to find a couple speeches and articles that fit where two of my daughters are in American history (they are not studying the same time frames)
Linking with Jessica at Life as Mom and hoping to hear from you, what have you been reading?
