What Anthony Read Yesterday

Nim's Island is a book I bought yesterday. For us to read in preparation for seeing the movie next weekend, the movie with Jodie Foster ( one of my favourite actors) .

Anthony read the book in the afternoon. He enjoyed it ; said it was an easy but captivating read. I hope to read it myself this week.

We pretty much love books and reading here, although right now I am finding it hard to discover a riveting book . I am reading mostly light non fiction, nothing taxing , no deep novels, no deep spiritual reading.

After "Nims Island", I am looking for a good read, a sink-your-teeth-into read.

The kids have had their mental teeth stuck in a number of books. Anthony has been reading some of Isaac Asimov's Robot series and Thomas some of Gibbons' "Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire". Alexander is currently enjoying Bram Stoker's classic ~ "Dracula".

I love the diversity of my kids' reading.
