Anyone else like it? I do.
I was just listening to the story about the miners in West Virginia. My heart goes out to all the families. And I'm praying for recovery of the one man left alive.
We went to see Narnia last week. It was very good, even the four year old sat for most of it. This led me to invest in the books by CS Lewis. I've never read them, but I'm going to before or as the kids do. I read the first chapter of "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe" outloud to the girls yesterday. They liked, and the six year old has been reading ahead on her own. I think some of the words go over her head, but she is enjoying it.
LOL she reads like I do. The outside world goes away, and you're inside the book. Getting her attention while she's reading is nearly impossible.
I've jumped on the Harry Potter bandwagon and am reading the first book. I like it. I've been waiting for my oldest to be able to read books and be able to talk about them with her so figure I need to read some other children's books. She's getting to the age where she'll read more and more. I can't wait!!
Well I have a brag. Yesterday, the four year old did flashcards of all her letters and got them all. *blinks* four months ago she knew the letter M and a couple of others. I'm so proud of her. The big kicker for her...she wants to read like her big sister. I think she's going to be ready for kindergarden in the fall!!
I'm still stunned at my first co-written story getting contracted. Been snoopy dancing a lot.
I'm also having some neat moments. Nothing is better than opening up an email and seeing "I just read your book and loved it." And having people who I don't know, who don't have to like it LOL, call themselves a fan.
Crimson's Rose is at 200 pages. I'm sooooo close to the end. I'm going to cut myself off the next few nights and try to finish it. I love Crimson and Rojo. They are a neat couple.
May the muses have good books
