Summer Reading

Remarkably, one of the things I've been able to do this summer is read, read, read! Here are a few of the books I've read...

Young Adult Fiction or Historical Fiction
The Tent by Gary Paulsen
Kipling's Choice by Geert Spillebeen
Milkweed by Jerry Spinelli
The Teacher's Funeral: A Comdey in Three Parts by Richard Peck

Adult Nonfiction
A Mother's Ordeal by Steven Mosher

My new favorite read is by Alexander McCall Smith. I just read the first book in a series of books called The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency. It was a great read! I can't wait to get the second book in the series. It is set in Botswana, Africa which offered a very different setting from other books I've read recently. I was also surprised in that there is little to no violence, no sex (except one reference to it at the beginning) and the main character had morals! I highly recommend it!
