Summer Reading

9 Jun

A friend of mine, I’ll call her Fred’s Mom, from church posted about her wish list for Summer Reading.  We all know that mom’s are busy people, and as much as we would like to sit down and read, that if we actually get still and read, we typically end up napping!

Anyway, I thought it was a neat idea to put down on “paper” (i.e. blog) what I *would* read, if I could sit down and read without collapsing into a coma!

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — actually, I *am* reading the second half for the upcoming midnight viewing!!!  (CAN’T WAIT!)  **FINISHED!!!  I can’t wait for the movie, now!!!!**

Jane Eyre

Passport2Purity by Dennis and Barbara Rainey…this has been recommended by quite a few parents at our church.  I am very interested in reading it to see what it says!

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo — I started reading this at Hard Labor Creek last summer, but didn’t get very far….it was an interesting read, though.

A very interesting thought, though….since my kiddos have to read a book over the summer and do a book report for school, maybe I should sit down with them and read my  book while they read theirs….that would be modeling good behavior, right?!  Once again….hopefully I don’t end up sawing some Zzzzzzz’s!
