what Alex has read...

... so far this year.... unless I missed some (which is entirely possible).

I really enjoy the books lists that Jocelyn posts on her blog, so I thought I would try to do something similar for Alex this year.

I'm going to try to do this each week. I took this photo on library day since we would be returning one of the books in the pile.
For School:
Ben Franklin of Old Philadelphia
Mr. Revere and I: Being an Account of certain Episodes in the Career of Paul Revere,Esq. as Revealed by his Horse
Both of these are part of his Sonlight curriculum this year.

For Fun:
The Disappearing Floor (Hardy Boys, Book 19)
Alex loves the Hardy Boys mysteries... he always grabs one when he wants a quick read.
Peter and the Starcatchers
Alex LOVED this book. It was part of our family book club this year. I'm the only one who hasn't finished reading it, I got distracted by an old favorite (found a Trixie Belden mystery at the library... I loved those as a kid). Anyway, I'm trying to talk Alex into writing a review of the book for the blog, but so far, no dice.

I was a Hardy Boys fan when I was a kid - but I was a HUGE Trixie Belden fan. I still have a lot of the books tucked away in a box somewhere!

it's great he enjoys reading just for fun, I look foward to hearing about some of his choices...and if you can convince him, a review or two :)
