February Reading

I’m a few days late in documenting what I’ve read in January. I had a short list last month – my goals were to try and tackle:

I also managed to finish 100 Cupboards by N.D. Wilson. I had read this one several years ago and recently picked a used copy for a song and couldn’t remember if N1 would be ready for it. The answer was yes for this quirky, fairytale-ish story.

Working on my reading list for February.

A good chunk of my February plans are posted in the picture above. I’m still trying to pick from my shelves and read some that have been recommended to me time and time and again but I just haven’t ever gotten to. With that said, my plans for February are:

  • to read the second book in the 100 Cupboards series, Dandelion Fire. (I can’t just stop with book 1 and I’ve not read book 2 before).
  • One of the books on my shelf from Susan Schaffer Macaulay – either For the Family’s Sake or For the Children’s Sake.
  • One of the Katrina Kension books on my shelf – Mitten Strings for God, The Gift of an Ordinary Day, or Magical Journey: An Apprenticeship in Contentment. I’ve dabbled in the Kenison books (except the bottom one, it was just published) and it’s time to read through one of these from cover to cover.
  • Read-aloud The Railway Children by E. Nesbit with the girls. It was a reading selection in one of N2’s Writing with Ease assignments and the few paragraphs we read were enough to tempt us into reading the book. I downloaded a free copy on my Kindle and we are about two chapters in and can’t wait to read more. This is my first foray into E. Nesbit’s books, though we have watched a video of Five Children and It and loved it. I have a feeling I’m going to love her books as well and will need to read all of them soon. : )

I’m also planning on participating in the Reading to Know bookclub again in February. This month’s read is The Scarlet Letter, one that I haven’t read since high school. I have the free version loaded on my Kindle and found a very dusty copy on my shelf so I’m set. Now to just find some time. : )

Happy Wednesday! We are going to tackle some school today and hopefully get a little bit of sunshine this afternoon. These mid-50 days we have had this week have been wonderful for little people that have been cooped up inside for far to many cold days in a row. And Mama has enjoyed the Vitamin D as well. : )
