Argh, sorry for the previous messed-up post! Alright, let’s start this again. You’ll see I have my reasons to be messed up…
This is going to be a condensed version of my weekly update because my DSL connection has been slowing dying for the past week and I have very limited access to the internet from my computer. I’m working on a replacement solution so in the meantime, I focus most of my internet access on work projects and get to blogging whenever it fits.
– What I’m currently reading
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot. I like it so far and I had no idea about HeLa cells, their origin and their importance for modern medecine, so this is a fascinating subject.
– What I recently finished reading
Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury. What a lovely book about summer for two brothers, detailing what happens in this small town of Illinois on a daily basis. I love the poetry Bradbury uses to describes every little scene, the humor, the sadness and the frightful moments. It’s a great book to remind you of your own childhood and how you used to spend your summers. I definitely recommend this read, especially anytime during the summer months.
– What I think I’ll read nex
Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ’s Childhood Pal by Christopher Moore. This is for my book club meeting at the end of this month and it looks absolutely hilarious.
My kids’ bookshelf
– What they’re currently reading
– Mucky Moose by Jonathan Allen. Mucky Moose is the biggest moose in the forest and the biggest wolf in the forest decides to eat him for dinner. Unfortunately the wolf doesn’t know Mucky Moose really, really stinks. So the wolf tries different things, like putting a clothespin on his nose, or wearing a gas mask. My kids LOVE this story and have asked for it almost every day for the past week.
– Green Wilma and Green Wilma, Frog in Space by Tedd Arnold. We’re big fans of Tedd Arnold, especially his Fly Guy series and we recently discovered the Wilma books, which are not so recent. Poor Wilma is a normal girl who one days wakes up as a very green frog. This seems to bother everyone from her parents to her teacher but her, as she embraces her new life as an amphibian. Two very absurd, yet very funny stories.
– What I think they’ll read next
I don’t know but I’m sure it will be good stuff. What about you? Any books you or your kids are reading you’d like to share?
