It's time for another Reading Aloud Challenge... and I finally get to post that I finished something. I'm not reading aloud. I'm barely keeping my head above water. <sigh> I know I'm not alone right now, and I'm going to post anyway...
Connor & I finished Peace Child. And when I reported last week about it not being as gruesome as the first couple of chapters... cough, cough, gag, gag. Oh, my. The very next chapter I read was the worst in the book. Connor actually told me I didn't have to read it aloud. <shudder>
Amazing book. Well worth the read. Not for anyone below high school.
William & Thomas -- yeah. We didn't even read a single chapter of God King.
Richard & Trina -- I opened Mountain Born. Once. Didn't read a single word. But I opened it.
reviewed it. The book is fabulous. We do still have to finish it up, but have gotten through most of it. (I don't necessarily finish non-fiction titles before I review them... just fyi. I read a good chunk, and I'll flip through/skim the rest, then review it.) This one will probably (at the rate we're going lately) be on my Reading Aloud post for the next couple weeks. In normal times, we'd be finished.
Plans for this coming week? You know the drill. Finish some of what I just listed. I don't think I'm going to worry about starting something new with Connor until January.
How did your week go? Do you find you are too busy at this time of year for reading aloud, or is it just me?
