I DID read, but honestly, getting ready for the Water Walk presentations took a lot of my time. I did read, but not enough to complete a book. I hope to right that wrong this week.

Remember this? (Some pics are from the 7th and 8th grade presentations.)

[I downloaded an advance copy of this for my iPad for night reading. It is captivating, but Rated M for mature.
Parents: If you ever have any questions about the maturity level of a book I post on here, please don’t hesitate to ask.]

  1. Pingback: 10.6 It’s Monday! What are you reading? #KnockoutGames by G. Neri | {Eat the Book}

  2. I’m currently reading “Lullaby” by Ace Atkins in the style of the late, lamented Robert B. Parker’s Spenser novels. I’ve read the entire series and I wasn’t sure if I should continue after Parker’s death. Curiosity got the better of me and I borrowed a digital copy of the book for my Kindle. Sad to say it’s not the same. Maybe I just can’t get over the knowledge that Robert B. Parker isn’t the author, but it feels different. Different enough that I think I’ll just be happy with the existing series and not continue with these new pseudo-Spenser installments (or at least until curiosity gets me again).

    • I am sad to say but I have never read Spenser’s novels – – either when he was alive or since he passed. But I can imagine how disappointing it would be to read some of my favorite books/series written by a different offer. Thanks for coming on and commenting. Parents make a big difference!

  3. I’m reading “North To Ithaka” by Eleni Gage. It’s about a lady who goes back to her ancestral home in Lia, Greece to rebuild it. The home was destroyed during the Greek Civil War in 1948.
    I love books when people go back to re-awaken their family’s heritage.
