It's time again to share books we've read. I have not read as much as I would have liked the past couple of weeks, but have finished a few books, and started several more!
My favourite was "Zeitoun" by Dave Eggers. It was shocking in parts but so very interesting.I am looking forward to Thursday, when our social justice book club meets to discuss the book. Should be a very challenging discussion!
Two other books I read over the Easter weekend and thoroughly enjoyed, were:
"Comfort Food" by Kate Jacobs (the author of the Friday Night Knitting Club - loved that series of books!)
"The Edge of Winter" by Luanne Rice.
At school I reread "The Velveteen Rabbit" by Margery Williams. It is one book I don't mine rereading over and over again. My class this year saw immediately the connection to "The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane" - a book they absolutely loved and were moved by.
We are just starting to read "Stone Fox" by John Reynolds Gardiner. I hope to have them view the movie when we are finished and compare the 2.
I am currently reading:
"Life is a Verb" by Patti Digh (Reading and experiencing it as there are exercises to do)
"Wonder" by R.J. Palacio (A YA novel recommended all over blogland!)
"Stolen Child" by Marsha F. Skrypuch. I just discovered this author is from Brantford and writes a lot of historical fiction, which I love.
Any favourites you have to share?
