Happy New Year everyone! I just stumbled upon this and am subbing! I need some ideas. I am in a bit of a book rut lately, dying to try some new authors, and love the idea of this thread.
No real goals or numbers - just to read an occasional book all by my lonesome, not out loud, that is sold in the adult section of the store - perhaps even a new book. LOL And by new I mean, one I have not read before, I generally only buy books at the used bookstores - why get one when I can get 5 for the same price
That said, we have recently branched out into basic chapter books for my son's bedtime reading and that has been super fun. Revisiting some of my childhood faves (some of which are different thru the eyes of an adult) and catching up on new books that I missed out on.
The most recent books I have read include (they are kiddo books so I will spare you the summary - unless you want to hear about them!):
the Phantom Tollbooth by (gotta double check the spelling) - LOVE LOVE LOVE this book, even better as an adult. So witty!
SuperFudge by Judy Blume
The Mouse and the Motorcycle by Beverly Cleary
Tonight we started The Egypt Game - Zilpha Keatley Snyder, haven't read it before but I loved her Below the Root triology as a kid myself. Excited to read this one too.
