Here we are once again. It’s time for From the Family Bookshelf, the weekly (hopefully) column that talks about the books that we’re reading, have read, or want to read. There’s four of us in this little old house: Mom (me), Dad, the Lil Diva (8), and the Lil Princess (6).
Let’s see what we’re all up to this week!
I’ll go first again this week. I just wrote up three book reviews: Noonie’s Masterpiece (MG), The Power of Your Child’s Imagination (Parenting), and The Way to Stillness (inspirational self-help). I posted one of these so far. The other two will appear later this week at The Book Connection. I also have two other reviews left to write.
I am going to start Faith and Finances tonight. This is a book by several authors who collaborated to bring you spiritual insight and practical advice on:
“Faith – Finance – Tithing – Provision – Generous Giving – Budgeting – Unemployment and Bankruptcy – Struggling to Pay Bills, Set Up and Manage a Budget – Concerns over Financial Security – Household Budgets – God Promises Daily Provisions – Living By Faith, Giving Away Wealth and much more.”
Dad is still muddling through the thriller, Prayers for the Assassin , by Robert Ferrigno. Did I mention he’s a slow reader? 🙂 He’s liking it, so that’s what matters.
The Lil Diva was happy to return to school today and find that her latest Scholastic book order had come in. It contained the much coveted Justin Bieber CD and a book on the teen pop sensation, Justin Bieber His World by Riley Brooks. I’m honestly not sure why she is so into Justin Bieber, but if it gets her to read, then she can buy every book about this teen pop sensation ever printed.
The Lil Princess surprised me this week and picked up Hop on Pop by Dr. Seuss. She likes her Dr. Seuss books, but lately she’s come away from them and seeks more challenging material. She has one of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books if that gives you any clue as to what I am talking about. She’s can’t really read those, but she usually leans toward more complex books.
Until next time, keep reading!
