I love long holiday weekends. I finished three books while my husband drove us to and from our camping trip in Lancaster, PA. I had already started all three of them, but there's something so satisfying about finishing a book.
So, here are my plans for this month. I'm sure that things will change -- books will cross my path that I have to read
I'm still working on The Purpose of Boys: Helping Our Sons Find Meaning, Significance, and Direction in Their Lives by Michael Gurian, which was on my list last month, and several of you seemed to be interested in it, but I did finish Dear Mom: What Your Teenage Daughter Wants You to Know but Will Never Tell You (linked to my review).
This month I'm going to read another parenting non-fiction book (I've been enjoying them lately, and actually getting through them, not just starting them): Free-Range Kids: Giving our Children the Freedom We Had without Going Nuts with Worry by Lenore Skenazy
Maybe You'd Be So Pretty If . . .: Teaching Our Daughters to Love Their Bodies--Even When We Don't Love Our Own
Going to See the Elephant
Maynard and Jennica
Edited Tuesday afternoon to add some maybes -- I knew I didn't have enough fiction:
The Triumph of Deborah
I'm almost halfway through Bittersweet: Lessons from My Mother's Kitchen, so I'd like to finish it.
Happens Every Day: An All-Too-True Story
Violet Raines Almost Got Struck by Lightning
Kyle and I are halfway through reading Little House in the Big Woods aloud. It's a great book for boys -- lots of hunting, building, and butchering.
Amanda and I are a good ways into The Young Unicorns by Madeleine L'Engle, and loving it.
Maybe The Truth about Truman School
