Stacked for Summer
For weeks Xena has been talking about all the stacks of books growing around the house. Boxes have been delivered daily on the doorstep from favorite book vendors packed with the newest titles.
Some of the titles are must reads from last year. Others are favorite books soon to appear on the silver screen. There are even much awaited sequels.
Yes, there will more stacks appearing. And yes, there will be weekly visits to local bookstores to snag up the latest and greatest books for children and young adults as well as numerous stops at the Charlevoix Public Library. But for now this is what is stacking up to start off my summer of reading.
I can't wait to finish reading Readicide by Kelly Gallagher and begin The Book Whisperer by Donalyn Miller.
Just for pure pleasure I found a copy of The Pioneer Woman Cooks by Ree Drummond. It looks like an extension of her wonderful blog noted in my post about Charlie The Ranch Dog but absolutely loaded with pictures and tips to complete her recipes.
