Favorite Reads

A good friend was over the other day and we were exchanging some ideas for books and I realized it has been awhile since I posted a reading list here (that will resume in September) but I thought I would post a few of our favorites from this summer, a brief sample and many have been mentioned before. I'm going to do it from memory so author list may not be complete. These are some of the read me and reread me and could you read this again even though we read it a half hour ago books in our house this summer.

There you have a brief peek into some of our summer favorites. We also have a steady stream of library books coming in as well as whatever the kids pick up around the house. We have cut back our reading time to probably somewhere between 30 minutes and an hour a day, so we can enjoy being outside more.
