I've been wanting to write reviews of all the good books I've read this summer. But there just hasn't been time. I can, however, type up a list with very brief comments. Feel free to share what you've been reading this summer. I'd love to hear about your favorites!
Till We Have Faces by C.S. Lewis
I really did like this, despite the fourth word of my review. (I was using an older definition, by the way.)
Glory and Honor: The Musical and Artistic Legacy of Johann Sebastian Bach by Gregory Wilbur
I like Bach...but this book was just sleepy.
With Pipe, Paddle, and Song by Elizabeth Yates
Another great story by one of my favorite authors. This one is about French Voyageurs in 18th century Canada.
The Elements of Style by William Strunk Jr. and E.B. White
I should read this every six months! Valuable, succinct writing advice.
Who Should We Then Read? by Jan Bloom
I picked this one up at our local homeschooling conference after hearing the author speak. Mrs. Bloom's enthusiasm for good books is catching! This book covers many authors of children's literature, providing short bios and lists of their works. There is also a section with complete listings of the books included in series such as Landmark and Signature Books.
The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster
All Creatures Great and Small by James Herriot
All Things Bright and Beautiful by J.H.
All Things Wise and Wonderful by J.H
These books are a hoot! I didn't know reading about animals would be this fun. Great storytelling.
Poirot Investigates by Agatha Christie
Teaching the Trivium: Christian Homeschooling in a Classical Style by Harvey and Laurie Bluedorn
One of the very best books on education that I've read. Look for a review eventually. ;)
I, Isaac, Take Thee, Rebekah by Ravi Zacharias
Another book I intend to write more about.
The High School Handbook by Mary Scholfield
Very helpful info. for homeschool record keeping and course planning.
Knitting Pretty by Kris Percival
Last Minute Knitted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson
You can tell I'm in a crafty mood lately... :-P
Well, that's it for now. I can't decide what to read next. Any suggestions?
