We generally alternate, one chapter of one or the other each night, but sometimes we read a little bit of each. The chapters are pretty short, so we often read some picture books afterwards.
In other news: I borrowed Little Women
from the library on CD and remembered why I was so irritated with that book when I was ten. I'm still mad at Jo for not marrying Laurie! Is that awful or what?! I just remembered thinking that she was an idiot for not marrying him and I was ticked off at her from then on, it tainted every other LMA book that I read.
Even now, 18 years later, I find myself agreeing with my 10-year-old self that Jo should have married Laurie when she had the chance.
Funny, or what?
Oh, and I borrowed Artemis Fowl from the library (another audiobook, for the car
) and I'm really enjoying it, but it bothers me that the main character is a boy when Artemis was a Goddess
. I keep hearing the name and thinking that it should be a girl. It messes with me! I know, I shouldn't be so tense, I should get over it, but it bugs me.
