Well, a while back, the boys got their summer reading lists. Some of the books were already in the house, and some I had to order. I try to read the boys' summer reading books, even if I've read them before, to show solidarity with them. What with the reorganization of my office, plus reorganization of the playrooms (ongoing in both cases), my reading time has been minimal. But I'll get there, mostly.
Angela's Ashes (Saw the movie, and it was depressing. I'll skip the book.)
1984 (Read and hated in high school. Another skip)
Pride and Prejudice (read last year, and enjoyed) OR
Return of the Native by Thomas Hardy (Ryan's choice. I found it for free on the Kindle, and have enjoyed it.)
A Passage to India (A must!)
About A Boy (Liked the movie; hope I'll Like the book.)
To Kill A Mockingbird (I've read it about 4 times, and love it. Mark read it last year.)
Shane (Short. Maybe this weekend, or next.)
The Hobbit (Not my stile. Mark's read it twice.)
A Separate Peace (Loved it in high school. Eager to read it again.)
Of Mice and Men (Classic. Of course it's on the list.)
And, in case you wondered, Brutus doesn't always eat shoes. Sometimes he plays with the Planet Dog ball Nichole sent to Thor, which Brutus found in the playroom and carefully hides next to his pillows (and sometimes loses under his pillows!).
Happy Weekending, everyone!
