Those piles of books around my house have been nagging me lately. "Read me!" "No, read me first!" they demand. "Stop writing and read me," they plead. "Laundry isn’t as exciting," they whisper.
Since they won’t be silenced, I thought I’d quickly let you know what I’m simultaneously reading and "thinking about" instead of writing on this blog today. Here are the chapter/fiction books:
Derby Girl by Shauna Gross (A girl with blue hair and a mother trying to force her into beauty pageants? I am sooo there)
Lobsterland by Susan Carlton (Can I relate to life with clinically depressed people?!)
To Catch a Mermaid by Suzanne Selfors and illustrated by Catia Chien
The House of a Million Pets by Ann Hodgman (Uh-Oh! Is this my house?)
Mokie and Bik by Wendy Orr (Illustrator Jonathan Bean has been VERY busy)
If I don’t surface soon, send help!
