I know I can tell from just looking at him every day, but there was another sign that my baby is growing up!
Tonight we were driving to the library when he started talking about the fact that they are doing literature circles at school. Don't ask me to explain, it sounds a bit like required reading but over an extended period of time and he has to do a summary of each chapter. My next question of course was 'What book is it?'. Mister Monday by Garth Nix. I got very excited and said something along the lines of I read that a couple of years ago! It made a reading mother proud!
As for the library loot we were on the way to pick up, there was actually quite a bit again!
Emma Vol 1 by Kauru Mori - Graphic novel that Kailana put me onto recently.
Angelique in Revolt by Sergeanne Golon - next book in this series that was originally released in the 1960s
Away with the Fairies by Kerry Greenwood - next book in the Phryne Fisher mystery series
Wolf Brother by Michelle Paver- have been meaning to read this forever.
The Mysteries of Glass by Sue Gee - started reading the first couple of pages but then had to return it because someone else had requested it.
Fishing for Stars by Bryce Courtenay - got a bit further into this one before I had to return it unfinished.
Drood: A Novel by Dan Simmons - have been seeing this mentioned a bit around the place, and it is also Book at the Month at Historical Fiction Online.
I was also supposed to pick up Grave Peril by Jim Butcher but for some reason they couldn't find the book anywhere on the hold shelf. I am going to have to rerequest it again, but in the mean time some one else has it on hold too so it will be a bit longer than I would have liked to get to it!
