Booking It on Your Own (July Updates)

Posted By Jessica Fisher On July 11, 2011 @ 12:48 pm In Book Review,Booking It | 21 Comments

Are you Booking It [4] this year? Yesterday we discussed the “assigned” reading of the month, Dancing with My Father [5]. Today we’re talking about all the books we’ve read this month.

In past months I have had several books to report on. This month, I wrote one instead. Does that count?

No, truly I did read some other books as well. Last month’s reading of The Pilgrim’s Progress [6] inspired me to reread Little Women [7] by Louisa May Alcott. What a wonderful little diversion!

I laughed, I cried; it moved me, Bob.

Oh, and what a surprise it was that my memory of the March girls has been sullied by the theatrical versions. What a relief to read that Meg, Amy, and Beth all had well-developed characters and personalities! Jo didn’t steal the show at all; each plays a wonderful part in the story.

How come I did not notice it before?

I can’t wait until my girls are big enough for chapter books and girly stories. This is going on the list.

So, what about you?

Read any good books lately?
