Reading List Update

Well my Summer reading is moving right along. I have finished the wonderful Sense and Sensibility,  it is always a favorite. I also read through a series by Katherine Herman that I picked up at the Christian Library in Lancaster. When there I picked up another of her series for my light reading. Speaking of light reading I finished Leaving by Karen Kingsbury and cried my way through it. Presently I am devouring A Mt. Vernon Love Story by Mary Higgins Clark. I think I may have read this before, but I love American History so I am enjoying it again and it is a good side companion to The Real George Washington.

 As for my Kindle vs Nook decision, it is still oncoming....and the Ipad has entered the room. I am not sure if I want to spend this kind of money on a reading device, I love books. I like the idea of convenience in a world where 3 boys occupy so much of my mind....but again, not sure if the money is worth it. Oh well, time to make the decision, no pressure at all, which is good.

 As for today.....we bowl. I love the Kids Bowl Free Program.....the boys are excited to spend some time with their cousins. They are also spending a lot of time watching a decomposing bird in the back woods....oh the joy of boys! I am thinking I am going to need to purchase some type of skeleton kit, because they desperately want that dead bird to come in the house!

Summer Reading

Well now that I have my Summer Reading list underway, with much inspiration from Mt. Hope Chronicles. I am exploring the options of a Kindle vs a Nook? Any thoughts out there?? I would love access to library books, which I know a Nook offers, and Kindle should later this year. I would also like the option of being able to check my email and facebook (my adult interactions). I would love to hear any opinions.....oh, as for my first book this summer, a classic, Sense and Sensibility, you can never go wrong with Jane Austen.
