Reading Aloud Challenge - October 20

Okay, so this is going to be a quick and dirty post.  Get 'er done.  We've been busy, busy, busy... but that is a post for another time.  We do get home today.  "There's no place like home!" to quote a story we finished this week (okay, the movie version, but still...)

It has primarily been audio school.  The single real book we read is an upcoming review title: The Person I Marry.  We read that to put this whole wedding thing in perspective.  Believe me, this whole wedding thing needed perspective.

We tried (again, after cleaning it) to listen to Gooney Bird Greene, but the CD was skipping horribly.  <sigh>

We finished The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.  Read by Jim Weiss, this was pretty fabulous.

I have not picked up a cord for the iPod (may do that on the way out of Grand Island today), so we were stuck with what I had on CD.  So we listened to the My Father's Dragon trilogy... what fantastic books!  My Father's Dragon, Elmer and the Dragon, and The Dragons of Blueland.  I think those are the titles anyway.  That was fun.  I miss using the maps in the book as we read, but listening to the voices used made up for it.

We listened to a Hank the Cowdog book, but I have no idea the title.  The case was poorly labeled.  Talked about him as a puppy and how he came to be Head of Ranch Security.  Funny as always.  Of course.  We enjoy Hank.

Plans for this coming week?  I have one more book on CD available.  The Railway Children, maybe?  But it is buried, and I'm not sure I can get to it.  Depending on how quickly I get this posted and get out of Dodge, we may hit Wal-Mart... if so, then we'll be listening to Heidi.

How did your week go?  Sign the linky to link up your reading aloud post and I'll come visit your post, sometime. I hope.  I'm making no promises this week about when that might happen.  I have NOT visited anyone from last week.  This being out of town and having random access to the internet is tough.

To see my first post when this turned into a linky thing, check here.

My week has been less than impressive. It seems when "life" intervenes, there are bound to be some "off" weeks, after all!

I should be more careful if I'm signing links late at night -- I initially pasted your blog address in my link. Sorry.

Weeks like this happen to everyone. Life gets in the way of "learning" at times, but usually is the best teacher of all!
