I got caught up in more fiction than usual this month. I wanted a book to read while we were on vacation in Atlanta, so I got Mindy Starns Clark’s A Penny for Your Thoughts from the library. It was the first book of five in her Million Dollar Mysteries series and I ended up reading all of them! The main characters continued through all five books, so I was interested enough to want to find out what happened at the very end.
I guess I’ve gotten a bit busier in the last couple of weeks because I haven’t done much reading. Here’s what else I read in October.
- Better Than Good: Creating a Life You Can’t Wait to Live by Zig Ziglar
- The Parent You Want to Be: Who You Are Matters More Than What You Do by Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott
- Have a New Teenager by Friday by Dr. Kevin Leman
About two-thirds of the way through, I gave up on reading Kidnapped to my ten-year-old. The language was a bit too antiquated and colloquial for both of us. We’re now reading Daddy-Long-Legs by Jean Webster. I didn’t read this book until I was a young adult, but it’s now one of my – and my twelve-year-old’s – favorites.
What good books have you been reading lately?
Isn't it funny that we published our book reading on the same day?!
The book by the Parrotts sounds like a good one; I'll have to look into it. And I read Kidnapped in junior high, and I remember it being hard to understand. Treasure Island is much better and easier to understand. Have you read it?

Yes – we really liked Treasure Island!
