Thankfully Reading Weekend Wrap Up

The Thankfully Reading Weekend is over. I ended up reading only a handful of books, mainly children’s books. I thought yesterday was going to be a better day but the kids start playing around and I ended up with a dental emergency on my hands. It’s been a long 24 hours and I’m exhausted.

What I read this weekend:

Lies, Knives, and Girls in Red Dresses by Ron Koertge

The Beetle Book by Steven Jenkins

The House Held Up by Trees by Ted Kooser

Golden Domes and Silver Lanterns: A Muslim Book of Colors by Hena Khan

One Cool Friend by Toni Buzzeo

Bud, Not Buddy by Christopher Paul Curtis – a re-read with my son

My favorite book of the weekend was Bud, Not Buddy. The picture books were also fantastic reads. I can see why each one of them made a best of 2012 list. I still have a stack of books that I want to read and I hope to get to each one real soon.

Now I’m off. Sleep is calling my name. What did you read this weekend?

  1. I didn’t participate, what with all the Thanksgiving shenanigans going on over my house, but it sounds like you did a fine job with it, considering the dental emergency!! I hope everyone at your house is happy and healthy, and that you had a wonderful holiday and reading weekend.

  2. You read some wonderful books. I wish we would create a category of books called pictures books for grownups. I’d put the Kooser book in that category. Wonder what kids think about that one….
