Fall Into Reading 2007

Who woulda thunk I'd have a hard time fitting my favorite hobby into my schedule? But it's true. It's all the First Steps and Step Into Reading books I've been reading lately. Sam and Ann and Tab the Cat are wearing me out, ya'll. So here's what's on the agenda for grown-up reading this fall:

*Tramp for the Lord by Corrie Ten Boom
*I might have to read The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom again, because I love it so much. But no promises.
*A Town Like Alice by Nevil Shute
*Heaven: Your Real Home by Joni Eareckson Tada
*The Ultimate Book of Homeschooling Ideas: 500+ Fun and Creative Learning Activities for Kids Ages 3-12 by Linda Dobson
*The Ways We Choose: Lessons for Life from a POW's Experience by Dave Carey

And the Maybe I'll Get to It List (actually, that would be all of these, but we're thinking positive here):
*The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini (have to read it before I see the movie!)
and
*The Nazi Officer's Wife: How One Jewish Woman Survived the Holocaust by Edith Beer

Heavy on the biographies this time, hey? Well, wish me luck before I begin speaking in monosyllables just like Sam and Ann:

Look! Look! See Mom read!
But Mom can read a book to me!
Jump! Yell! Sing a song!
Sing a song and Mom won't read long!

See what I'm dealing with?

I had to giggle about Sam and Ann and Tab the Cat. I know exactly what you mean! Hope you enjoy the grown-up books that you've picked out for yourself. Thanks for being part of Fall into Reading!
