From the Family Bookshelf

I have been a very, very bad blogger. It was the end of October when the last edition of From the Family Bookshelf was posted.  In all fairness, I was tied up in November with book tours and Picture Book Idea Month.

I’ll share everyone else’s list because mine is extensive.

Dad – We give him a lot of leeway on his TBR pile because he works way too much for one human. He finished Prince Caspian by C.S. Lewis.  He’s now reading Cell: A Novel, by Stephen King.

Lil Diva — She read Toby and the Phantoms of the Fourth Grade by Art Wallace. I just picked her up Because of Winn Dixie by Kate DiCamillo, which hopefully she’ll dig into over Christmas vacation.

The Lil Diva, the Lil Princess, and I have been reading the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. I ordered the latest, The Ugly Truth, from a school book fair and we polished that one off. We’re now reading the first book in the series together. The Lil Diva received Dog Days as a gift. She’s holding off on that one until we finish off the first book.

Mom – Hold onto your hats because this is going to be some list.
