I'm tired, everybody. I have been traveling almost every week since September, and I'm tired. I'm tired and I don't think I'm going to do any more traveling this year...Fingers crossed.
I've been reading a few kids' books, and these are all fantastic, some of my favorite reads of the year. A new Pigeon book by Mo Willems...a graphic novel memoir about a trip the author and his family took to Mexico when the author was a kid...a creature who loves his world...and the wonderful Because of Winn-Dixie...
I'm starting my 2024 reading early, as I always do, with a plan to finish the last page of each of ten books on the first day of next year. I've got three nonfiction books going now, but I will be adding some other books soon.
What I Read Last Week:
Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo
Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Sleigh by Mo Willems
Stickler Loves the World by Lane Smith
