Ralph S. Mouse, et al.

Calvin, Jared, and I are reading Ralph S. Mouse together. I'll try and get Calvin to write a review when we're done. :)

I'm also reading Inkheart by Cornelia Funke (I got bored with Robinson Crusoe) and I just finished The Ropemaker by Peter Dickinson which I really liked. I'll write a review when I have a minute.

That's the name of the book I'm reading. It's by Karen Kingsbury. She writes a lot of books, puts them out fast. This is one of a series. She's a Christian author, and all the books quote scripture from some version of the Bible and someone always finds their way back to church, but I like to read her books because there isn't anything bad in them - I know there won't be any swearing or anything like that. They're easy to read and I don't have to think about it, which I like, since I read at night to fall asleep or while I'm eating lunch to distract me from the rest of the day's duties.

Lemon Tart

I just read Mom's copy of Lemon Tart, by Josie Kilpack (? something like that). It's one of her Mormon mysteries. It was pretty good and a fast read but definitely in need of a better editor. It could have been a lot better had someone helped her tighten up the prose and stop talking down to the reader.

Mom's read about 5 books since she's been here, so I'm trying to convince her to write about them on here! Stay tuned! :)

Fablehaven 4

That sounds like a good boy book. Treasure Island is another one that boys would love! Peter Pan is pretty good too! Also, Sherlock Holmes. Just some suggestions. I'm currently reading Fablehaven 4. For anyone who wants to start the series I have the first book but not the 2nd or 3rd. I love them. They are fantasy books. Younger kids like them too, but you'd have to read out loud because there are lots of words.


Let's give this a try and see how it goes. Here's my first post:

I'm just starting Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe. It's the first novel written in English, and I've never read it. It seems boyish and I'm trying to expand my knowledge of boy-books. :) I'll let you know how it goes.
