It’s a lousy, snowy day. It’s a perfect day to read two of my sons favorite books – The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats and It’s Snowing by Olivier Dunrea. He loves anything by Ezra Jack Keats even though I think some of the stories are a little old for him.
As for me, I finished 2 young adult novels. Really, I do read adult fiction, too. Sherman Alexie’s Absolutely True Diary of A Part-time Indian was great, but not as funny as I thought it was going to be. It was actually pretty depressing but good. I also read the Book Thief. It seems like everyone was raving about this last year and I’ve finally caught up. This was one of the best books I’ve read this year. True, it was devastating at times but full of wonderful characters. I got very attached to some of them.
