Earlier this month, the lamp on our television went out. Brandon and I decided not to rush in replacing it. I can't begin to tell you how nice it is having no television in our living area. We've replaced TV watching with reading.
It's awesome, I tell you.
Here's what we're all reading right now...
[Left to right.]
Marilyn: Wish You Well by David Baldacci. I'm just beginning this book for our July bookclub. It's my pick for the club, so I hope it's a good one.
Jocelyn: Matched by Ally Condie. This was the book our club read last month, and I enjoyed it. Jocelyn is enjoying it too, plus it's a clean, wholesome read for teens.
Ethan: Little House on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Ethan enjoys old fashioned stories. He's got pretty good taste.
Madeline: Uglies by Scott Westerfeld. When I heard about this series, I knew Madeline would like it. I've started this one as well and will finish it when she gets done. I think it's a fascinating premise. Dystopian societies are all the rage these days :)
Lily: Horse Diaries: Elska by Catherine Hapka. Lily has developed a fascination with horses so when I saw this series, I knew she would love it. She is already finished with this first book and is anxiously waiting for book two to arrive any day now.
Brandon: See Dane Run by Dane Rauschenberg. He recently met this inspiring runner at a book signing and is pacing himself [excuse the pun] through this true life story of a man who ran 52 marathons in 52 weeks.
Have you read any great books lately?
