OK, now I've got that off my chest, back to books.
To read this weekend -
The Australia Book by Eve Pownall - research for Snowy's Thursday afternoon all-boy co-op.
The boys like it when our activities involve edibles. I am wondering how to combine the consumption of sugar with a study of Canberra...
Does My Head Look Big In This ? by Randa Abdel-Fattah. Our first book club book for the coming term. Thought it might be an interesting time to read the story of a young girl who decides to wear the hijab, especially in light of the recent French legislation. Hoping it's a good read as well.
The Running Man by Michael Gerard Bauer. Another book club selection. A boy, a Vietnam vet, a tragedy, a miracle.
