I’ve begun to compile links to my book reviews on one page for easy access. With four years’ worth of recommendations in the archives, this will be a long term project. So far I’ve got about four months’ worth of review on the page. Got a long way to go, but if you’d like a sneak peek, here it is.

Halfway through lunch, Beanie lets her book fall to the table. She sighs contentedly.
“I LOVE Einstein,” she announces.
She’s reading our small collection of Childhood of Famous Americans biographies, one by one. So far: Amelia Earhart, Sacagawea, Albert Einstein.
“Do you know why I like these books so much, Mommy?” she asks. “Because when I finish one, I feel like I know the person in real life. I feel like Albert Einstein and I are real friends.”

Spent much of this afternoon rocking a sleeping baby and finishing The Mysterious Benedict Society. Loved loved loved it. But then you knew that already.
We’ve already got the sequel on reserve at the library.
Funny aside: Scott was tickled that the book’s cool cover art was done by Carson Ellis, the same person who did the jacket art for his Decemberists CD. Connections!
