I did a lot better on reading this week. I can’t seem to find Stoneheart (by Charlie Fletcher) now that I’m trying to read it, so instead I’m working my way through the Dark is Rising sequence by Susan Cooper. I finished The Dark is Rising at long last, and then shot through Greenwitch. This morning I started The Grey King, which I should finish before I get the boys tomorrow evening.
I rather like this series. I’ll have specifics about the books later.
After that, I have a few more kidlit titles I want to get through in the immediate future — the sixth book in the Ranger’s Apprentice series by Robert Flanagan, The Siege of Macindaw; and The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Prisoner’s Dilemma, third in that series by Trenton Lee Stewart, come to mind.
I’d also like to make a dent in my stack of books I’ve meant to read for some time. I’ll list those in a different post.
I think I’ll toss a short story up tomorrow. Enjoy it, or not …
