My Book Feast

Last week was one of those weeks when I devoured stories every spare moment.  Not that there were many spare moments, with planned and impromptu guests (including a few overnight), a home ed. social day, church sand modelling activity, woodwork lessons, soccer training, Spring cleaning (even though it's Autumn), and we helped a family move house.   We started building our new dining/ activity room shelves too!

So can you see why I needed to read whenever there was a moment to escape?  Some people (including my husband) would say it's crazy to read so much at such a busy time, and that it'd be better to get a proper sleep.  They're kind of right, but I find reading is one of the most relaxing ways to restore my energy.

Here's a sneak peek at some of the books I've enjoyed in the last ten days:

I also read "The Whistling Season" by Ivan Doig, and perhaps others I returned to the library before I took these photos.  Sorry I don't have time to write reviews of the novels.  As for what I read with the children, that'll have to wait for another post.

I'm quite satisfied now.  Like feasting on chocolate, I enjoyed this delicious treat, but feel I've had my fill of fiction for now.  I 'm happily back into to my normal diet of dreaming up fun ways to learn, reading the Bible, catching up on home ed admin and writing here!
