Nice to see what everyone is reading at your house! I am just starting Hurt Go Happy by Ginny Rorby, recommended by a blogging friend. I loved Our of My Mind & think too many have forgotten Lawrence Yep-terrific books! Thanks!

Thank you for these recommendation. They're great books!

a follower. I love your blog. I've been writing and not following blogs, which is a shame because Pen and Ink also has a post which includes Children's Book Week and the other two major holidays being celebrated this week. And we certainly would have done a giveaway, had we known....
I am delighted to hear what your children are reading and I ask that, in honor of Children's Book Week, please share with us what book made you a reader?

Pen and Ink, I was delighted to post on your wonderful blog -- and it was fun reading everyone else's comments, too.

Linda, congrats on winning the book giveaway! Thanks for your constant support.
