Reading Aloud Challenge: we finished something!

With Grandma visiting, reading aloud didn't happen much this past week, so I don't have a lot to report.  I also did not visit anyone who linked to me last week.  I kept meaning to.  <sigh>

However, we did finish up a book, and stayed up to date in another.

The Princess Bride, by William Goldman.  We finished!  Glad we read this one. We celebrated by watching the movie.  Dale made us swear we wouldn't obsess about pointing out all of the differences between the book and the movie.  I'm afraid we didn't do as well with that assignment as he would have preferred.  Couldn't help it, in some places.

We've caught up and stayed up to date in The American Patriot's Almanac by William Bennett.  This past week, we read about the McCarthyism, Teddy Bears, "extreme" points in the US, Abraham Lincoln, the Lincoln Memorial, roses, Susan B. Anthony, pirates, a whole bunch of technological firsts, and Huckleberry Finn.  It was a fun week. 

Advice for Seekers by Charles H. Spurgeon is still slow going, but I reviewed it last week.  Connor is really liking it.

Next week, the photo will have more real stuff in it!  Yes, I said that last week.  And the week before.  <sigh>  It will though.  Because we are starting something new today.

How about you?  What are you reading out loud?  I'd love some inspiration, so feel free to link up your posts about reading aloud, or leave me a comment and tell me I can do it...
