Happily, I read seven more 1001 Children's Books this week. I brought home sixteen 1001 books from the Houston Public Library collection a couple of weeks ago, and I've been diligently reading them. One book, The Bears' Famous Invasion of Sicily, was in the rare book collection and I could not check it out; instead, I had to scan the whole book and bring the scanned version home to read.
I now stand at 667/1001 Children's Books read.
This was due at the library last week. I can't renew it because there is a long waiting list for it. It's so good that I'm willing to pay the fine while I read it.
Donalyn Miller announced her 11th Annual #Bookaday Challenge at the Nerdy Book Club last week. If you are not familiar with #bookaday, here is a little information about it.
Miller goes on to say, "The summer #bookaday event endures as an annual opportunity to hit the reset button on our reading lives, connect with other readers, celebrate books, and remind ourselves how much reading matters to our lives...."
I will be reading #bookaday this summer.
I made a pizza this week, using the recipe for the crust and tomato sauce from The Italian Baker (reviewed this week at Goodreads) by Carol Field. The crust rose up nicely and the tomatoes and onions simmered on the stove for two hours.
My little granddaughter, Annie, likes doing yoga with me. I've been reading Yoga for Everyone: 50 Poses for Every Type of Body (reviewed this week at Goodreads) in which the author shares fifty of her favorite poses along with variations of each pose. Here is Annie with her version of Tree Pose, one of my favorites.
