Here's a quick update of what I'm up to now since I'm a little behind in writing about what I've read so far this year.
Last night, I began reading Betsy-Tacy by Maud Hart Lovelace. It's the first in the Betsy-Tacy book series.
I'm only a couple pages into the series, so I can't provide too much feedback yet. I saw one of the books in the series when I was at the bookstore a few months back, and I figured I should start at the beginning of the series so I don't miss anything.
I also wanted a quick read before I pick up Jodi Picoult's new novel on House Rules Wednesday. It came out last Tuesday, but I'm going to a book signing next week and couldn't get to the bookstore to pick it up earlier (by the way, I am SOOOOO excited!).
My son and I are also reading Stuart Little by E.B. White one chapter at a time before bed. To the best of my recollection, I have not read Stuart Little (insert shock and awe here), so I am very excited about reading now with my little guy.
I don't know why I never got around to reading this when I was younger. It may be one of those that I started reading at one point, but never finished. I was very good at that, kind of like the pile of crochet projects I have in my living room that are half done. Some things never change!
I am still plugging away at Dominic Pacyga's Chicago: A Biography. I said it before and I'll say it again: it took me 12 weeks to take Dr. Pacyga's class. I am taking my time to finish his book!
Right now, I'm still only about 50 pages into the book. I'm just about at the Civil War. I just read about the outbreaks of cholera, and am thankful that I'm here during this era instead of then.
