Book Worm

I started reading The Work and The Glory two days ago. I haven't been able to put it down. This is my kinda' book! I'll be finished before bedtime tonight. We are missing #4 and #6 from our Work and Glory collection, so I guess I better be finding those two soon! I have a feeling that I am going to be getting through this series pretty quick. Truth be told, I can't believe I haven't read them til' now! I also recently found the last 2 volumes of The Children of the Promise series, and they happened to be hard-back, WITH the beautiful jackets nicely intact. I was SO excited to find them, and that they perfectly match the first three volumes which I already own. I still have Laddie and and Les Miserables going. (I have never been known to multi-task with the books I read, but it's fun). I caught a sneak peak of Oliver Twist about a week ago! It's definitely one that I can't wait to read, but that will be down the road sometime. We have been adding to our library so quickly, that I feel like a kid in a candy store...overwhelmed at all the wonderful possibilities! So we shall see what this summer's readings will bring for me! Stay tuned!


  1. My kids have been LOVING Oliver Twist. I've been surprised how exited they are to read it everyday. We weren't able to make it through Laddie as a family, but it's been over a year, maybe they would like it better now. I loved Work and the Glory, but I haven't read them in like 10 years. Maybe I'll pick them up again soon!
    Thanks for sharing your excitement! It makes me want to go pick up a book right now! I better go get some work done first though...

  2. How in the world do you have time to read???

    Good for you!!
