Weekend Links

OK, so my "Saturday Morning Book Posts" have been interrupted by a schedule of Saturday morning gymnastics classes and so forth. So here's a new stab at keeping a record of what we're reading and so forth - "Weekend Links".

Storytelling: The Quiltmaker's Gift by Jeff Brumbeau made a great story in church this morning.

Reading out loud to Hypatia: Ivy and Bean: No News is Good News (Love it!)

Reading out loud to Carbon: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Listening to in the car: Dragon Games (Books of Umber) (Pretty fun)

The kids are listening to on their own: the Hank the Cowdog series (They both enjoy it - I find it irritating)

We're listening to: The Green Album (Muppet Fans unite!)

Hypatia has this irritating pop song stuck in her head and keeps singing it: Half Of My Heart

Something we actually saw live and enjoyed:


  1. Do you get audio books from your library? I've noticed that the selection at our library is geared more towards younger kids...I've been thinking of doing Audibles so we can have more selection.

    We haven't tried the Books of Umber series--will have to take a look!

  2. Our library system is great for audiobooks, so we find all of these at the library. I guess we're lucky!
