The girls and I took an hour for just reading during school yesterday. We brought out half-finished books and half-unread books :) and some "unstarted" books that have been accumulating from history, literature, and for fun. It was quite a collection/pile! Dc's responses? I'll quasi-quote one: "Oh good! I've been wanting to finish reading such-and-such and haven't had time." Here are some that we had piled in the living room for our read-a-thon:
- Memories Before and After the Sound of Music: An Autobiography
- Mark Twain's Humorous Stories and Sketches
- Sherlock Holmes (I found this on the couch with a sticky note that said, "I'm watching you!" :)
- American Girl Molly Mystery
- Archimedes' biography
- Greek Myths
- The Boy's Book of Great Detective Stories (this is a collection from classic authors such as Poe, Chesterton, and Doyle)
That doesn't even scratch the surface of chicken book, cheese cookbook, and historical fiction books of my own that are stacked on the coffee table!
I'm thinking that we need another read-a-thon tomorrow... only... longer than just an hour!
