The Princess Bride, by William Goldman. We're about halfway through the book now, and it is still very funny. And yes, this is the book the movie is based on, for all who asked. The frustrating part of reading this book, though, is that because it is "abridged" (it was actually written this way), some of the chapters are about two Kindle pages long, and some go on for hours. Literally. We cannot sit down to read a single chapter, because we have no idea how long that might take.
We're continuing to read aloud is The American Patriot's Almanac by William Bennett. We are still doubling up on readings, but are getting pretty close to caught back up. This is so much fun.
Advice for Seekers by Charles H. Spurgeon is another one we started this past week. I'll be writing up a review early next week, though we won't be through it yet. Fourteen chapters, and we are sitting down to read a chapter at a time, roughly three days a week. The language and concepts are a bit much for my little two, so this is directed at the teens and tween.
I also started reading The Blue Fairy Book by Andrew Lang to the little two. That is something we will pick up and put down, when we are between books from the library. I put a few things on hold at the library, and we'll be picking them up tomorrow. I'm excited to start truly doing some read-alouds with the younger ones.
Next week, the photo will have more real stuff in it!
