Our Week in Books: Wednesday

July 7, 2010 @ 6:25 pm | Filed under: Books

For one week—starting, awkwardly, on a Tuesday—I am attempting to record everything each member of the family reads. Day one was yesterday.

Jane:
Mansfield Park (cont.)
Unexplained (cont.)
Showcase Presents: Batman 3 & 4

Rose and Beanie:
—Fraggle Rock comics #2 & 3

Rose:
Pearls of Lutra (cont.)

Beanie:
Mossflower (cont.)
Rowan and the Ice Creepers

me:
Feed (cont.)
The Weed that Strings the Hangman’s Bag (cont.)

Scott to Rilla and older listeners-in:
Pish Posh Said Hieronymus Bosch (whoops, strike that, she fell asleep too soon)

Arrivals:
—None! Practically a first!

Departures:
Bears on Wheels went back to the library. Yup, I remembered.

Other book-related activities:
—Stopped into our local children’s bookstore to see if they were stocking the Betsy-Tacy reissues. The Emily of Deep Valley reissue with Mitali Perkins’s foreword, and the Carney/Winona reissue with my foreword, will be published in October. ALA Midwinter is being held right here in San Diego in January, and the Betsy-Tacy crowd is already gearing up for some Maud-themed fun. I wanted to make sure this little bookstore was up to speed on all things Betsy Ray. The manager had not heard about the reissues and was quite interested.

Miscellaneous notes:
—Busy morning out of the house; Jane had a friend over in the afternoon. I didn’t read anything at all to the little ones, a realization that, here at the tail end of the day, makes me wince a little.

This list doesn’t (yet) include bedtime reading. I’ll update it in the morning.

  1. I realized when I saw this review of Smile on Slate that you had mentioned it.

  2. TEN, thanks so much for this link! I look forward to reading the review. I just left a comment about SMILE on another post—the Thursday one, I think.
