It’s Monday! What are you Reading? -everything

My reading has been shifting to more adult reads as I spend less and less time with students. That said I have not stepped away completely from kids lit.

So here are a few of the books I am in the middle of:

Children’s Books:

  • The Mystery of  Drear House – book two from Virginia Hamilton
  • The List by Patricia Ford
  • The Explorer by Katherine Rundell
  • The Van Gogh Deception by Deron Hicks
  • Wishtree by Katherine Applegate

Adult Books:

  • A Good Time for the Truth: Race In Minnesota 
  • The Little Paris Book Shop by Nina George
  • A Letter of Mary: A Mary Russell Mystery by Laurie R. King
  • The Glass Castle: A Memoir by Jeannette Walls
  • A Northeast Gardener’s Year by Lee Reich
  • Emily Dickinson’s Garden by Marta Mc Dowell


It was a busy September and so I was reading bits and pieces of everything. There are in both areas escape books -the easy, fun read. There are the serious books that I need to think about and then re read and share with others. All of them have me thinking and learning.

It is now October 2nd – a dark and raining day I am have decided it is time to settle down and finish each of these. Next week I will share just a bit about those I have finished.

Happy Reading Folks!

    Since I retired I read more adult books, but I’m not able to give up reading books for younger people. Nothing beats a really good MG novel. I still haven’t read The Glass Castle.
