Sometimes I consider myself addicted to reading. I generally have three to four books on the go at the same time. I like to keep books in various places in the house so I'm never far from something to read. I take my Kindle with me everywhere which now has several hundred books on it because I'm scared of being stuck somewhere without a book. And it's not unusual to find my Kindle AND a book in the diaper bag. I've got it bad.
So this week I read a book called Her about identical twins where one sister died. I also read Between Expectations about a pediatric intern. They were both so interesting I could hardly put them down.
So what have my children been reading...
15-year-old daughter - She's critiquing a book that a friend wrote. She also read The Patriots by Jack Cavanaugh and Johnny Tremaine. I haven't read Johnny Tremaine in years, but after hearing she was reading it now I want to read it again.
13-year-old son - Well, he's still visiting my sister's family in the States so I don't know what he's been reading. He's coming home in a few days and I can hardly wait. The big question - Should I hug him at the airport? ☺
11-year-old son - Still going strong with the Roman Mysteries but he also read a book called Universe a Journey From Earth to the Edge of the Cosmos by Nicholas Cheetham.
9-year-old daughter - See 11-year-old son. Honestly, I took them to the library one night, and I think they borrowed about six Roman Mysteries. She did also read The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett.
7-year-old daughter - Dolly Madison: Quaker girl (Childhood of famous Americans). These are fantastic books. I wish we had a series like this for famous Canadians.
5-year-old son - Madeline Treasury by Ludwig Bemelmans - six books in one volume
2-year-old son - ABC Bunny by Wanda Ga'g. We actually sing this one since there is tune written to it. It has a lot of repeating of "tra la la la la la la" which little ones love.
There you have it. I think my children are as addicted to reading as I am. We not only read books but we enjoy a rousing discussion about books we have all read.
Does your family have a book(s) that everyone has enjoyed and that you love talking about?
