books, books, books

We just finished reading Summer of the Monkeys by Wilson Rawls

I didn't think that Cole was really paying attention, but when it was time for a bath and a story each night he would always ask if we were reading the "Monkey" book. So, I guess he was listening to something. Then when we finished that book, he asked if we could read the Frodo book again. whatever.
We have started reading a new book:
My all time favorite book...
Next up on the list of books to read with the kids is this favorite...

it just makes me want to say, "no more rhyming, I mean it. Anyone want a peanut." or "my name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die."

The sad thing is that I am usually searching for a good book to read, but right now my night stand if FULL of books to read. I can't keep up. The problem is that now both Summer and Sierra are reading chapter books and want me to read some of their books (they both got some pretty good books for their recent birthdays).

We ordered this one from Amazon last week (it came out on Tuesday):
It is the 3rd book in the Mysterious Benedict Society Series. It should arrive on our doorstep any day now. But, I'm sure Summer will beat me to it.

I hope you all have a good book to read. Cool weather is coming soon and we'll all need a blanket and a cup of hot chocolate to go along with these good reads.

LOVE "To Kill A Mockingbird"! and Ethan loves the Benedict Society ones - he's waiting for the 3rd from the library. Good reads!!!

I heard that the girls had some good books, & they are even telling Grandma Bette that she needs to read them! I just finished the new Dan Brown & decided that I had better wrap up "The Grapes of Wrath". Then it's on to my ward's book group's choice, "The Book Thief". I'll let you know how that one goes, & it just might be added to your night stand stack.

mmmmmm. all favorites. Have you guys heard of Eva Ibbotson? one of my new favorite young adult authors. Kelli you've GOT to get a subscription to audible; then you could be reading while you sew or can or wash dishes. It's the only way to go for a mom.

I just finished "These is My Words" (which I think is your book actually). Very, very good.
