It is a mid-September (night's) reading stack because I did not finish some of my August reads by the beginning of September, such as City of God and Pride and Prejudice, and I wanted to make sure I had room to add more books first. (I also almost always read at night.) So here are some new titles I am beginning and some I am still bearing with in the middle of the month of September.
STILL BEARING WITH
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Rip Van Winkle - Washington Irving
Reading both of these with the kids for literature.A Philosophy of Eduction - Charlotte Mason
Mason's final book in her education series of six books. Once I finish this, it's back to book number one to begin the series all over again.Macbeth - Shakespeare
Reading straight Shakespeare (no watering down) with the kids. We take turns being characters, while they read from their smaller copies and I read from this monster:
Cloaked - Rachel Kovaciny @ Edge of the Precipice
This past summer, I had hoped to return to the art of reading for fun with my kids before bedtime, but the summer got away from us; now, no more excuses: we started with this adventurous Western fairytale by Rachel at Edge of the Precipice. I'm reading my copy on Kindle iCloud.
History of England, Vol. 5, 1603-1649 - David Hume
Reading for TWEM Histories Reading Challenge. It is not all that enjoyable, though some sections of history are interesting because I may be familiar; however, after a month of reading, I have not made much progress.NEW READS
Jude the Obscure - Thomas Hardy
Hardy and I are going to go toe-to-toe again. I am ready.A Grief Observed - C. S. Lewis
Hoping to start another Lewis, just because.The First Four Years - Laura Ingalls Wilder
The final book in the Little House series, though there are three more books to read after I finish this one for Little House-athon.And the Mountains Echoed - Khaled Hosseini
Hosseini did not disappoint with his previous two novels; therefore, I am absolutely looking forward to reading this next book.
