It's Monday! What Are You Reading?!


The Whole Fromage: Adventures in the Delectable World of French Cheese
by Kathe Lison

From Amazon:   "With writing as piquant and rich as a well-aged Roquefort, as charming as a tender springtime chèvre, and yet as unsentimental as a stinky Maroilles, The Whole Fromage is a tasty exploration of one of the great culinary treasures of France."

How to Teach Your Children Shakespeare
by Ken Ludwig
From Amazon: "In How to Teach Your Children Shakespeare, 
acclaimed playwright Ken Ludwig provides the tools you need to instill an understanding, and a love, of Shakespeare’s works in your children, and to have fun together along the way."

The Falcon and the Glass
by Susan Fletcher
From Karen Cushman: "Falcon in the Glass  is a spine-tingling adventure with a tender heart. Imagine dangerous secrets, cloaked assassins, and midnight rides through the murky canals of Venice. Do read it. You'll be glad."

Pi in the Sky
by Wendy Mass

From Amazon:
"Joss is the seventh son of the Supreme Overlord of the Universe, and all he gets to do is deliver pies. That's right: pies. Of course these pies actually hold the secrets of the universe between their buttery crusts, but they're still pies."

Ask My Mood Ring How I Feel
by Diana Lopez

From Amazon:
"It's summer before eighth grade, and Erica "Chia" Montenegro is feeling so many things that she needs a mood ring to keep track of her emotions."


The Vast Unknown: America's First Ascent of Everest

Fromage... I knew that was cheese in french, but only because my son has been working in the cheese business for a couple years.

Your reading list sounds interesting, hope you enjoy them.

My Reading Week

Deb Nance at Readerbuzz said...

Believe me when I say that Ken Ludwig is who I want teaching me Shakespeare....He is fabulous. He loves it and he knows how to share it that makes it seem more fun than visiting Disneyworld.
