PostSubject: What is everyone reading (or listening to) this week?   Sat Apr 03, 2010 10:37 am

I just began The Lost Symbol and The Secret Life of Bees. Last week I finished Water for Elephants. There was some language and a couple of situations in Water for Elephants, but overall an interesting read. I can tell The Lost Symbol follows the usual pattern of the author's other novels, so I'm not sure it will hold my interest. I have several books on hold at the library that I should get in the next week or so. What is everyone else into this week?

This is great! I hope that we can all stay in touch with each other through this forum as well as at scrapbooking events. I am glad that you set this up for us Terry.
I have been working on coloring pictures for classes that I plan to teach in the future at church. Also I have started a knitting project for the newest grandbaby that is due in August. Have spent a little time shopping for quilt material for a couple of quilts I want to get made in the near future.
There seems to be a never ending list of things I want to do and need to do. I haven't been reading just for pleasure lately. I have been studying a book called Catepillars or Butterflies, by Jane McWhorter and have been spending time studying about what we should think about in the Bible.

Hope everyone is having a nice weekend.

Rhonda, sounds like you are keeping busy as usual! I just watched a short clip on tv about butterflies and how they travel such long distances. It is really interesting!

Last week I taught about Palm Sunday with my Sunday School children. I gave them artificial palm leaves with Hosanna written on them. We had a parade in our room and they waved them and said Hosanna, Hosanna. It was really sweet.

Have a great Easter weekend!

I seldom read for enjoyment. I have been watching the birds building their new nests and listening to their beatiful little voices. In the mornings they just sing their little hearts out. Having this broke arm has certainly slowed me down and has allowed me to really enjoy the new spring growth, birds, squirrels and even the old ground hog in my back yard. Since my driving is limited, I miss seeing all my scrapping friends.

Hope everyone has a joyous Easter!

Hey Linda! The Lord works all things for the good. Look at the blessing that old ground hog has gotten from your attention! Very Happy I'm glad to hear from you and hope your arm is healing. I had a great time sitting next to you at the retreat.

Linda,
I did not know about your arm, what happened? It does make it difficult to do most things when you have the use of only one arm.

Hope you will recover quickly.

I made a stop at the library yesterday. I had 3 books waiting. I picked up Shutter Island by Dennis LeHane, Messenger by Lois Lowry, and Ellen Foster by Kaye Gibbons. Ellen Foster is next months Book Club read, so I have a while to finish it. I probably won't read it until the end of the month draws near.

I'm still reading The Lost Symbol. I do like it, but it is a slower read because it is detailed.

Sam, have you read The Giver by Lois Lowry? I need to know if I should read it before I read Messenger. I don't know if her books need to be read in order.

Ladies if everyone is interested I will try to start a reading thread every other week. study

Tammy I have read The Giver. Be prepared. It is very different. That is the only book I have read by this author. Sorry. Don't know if it maters about order.

Thanks. I will check on a summary online and see what it says about the subject, and the order of the books.

Terry, I did my homework and the 3 books by Lois Lowry do need to be read in order. The Giver, Gathering Blue, and Messenger. I will pick up The Giver and see if I think it is interesting or just strange.

Tammy it is just very different from anything I have ever read. Let me know what you think. I may have to check out the other ones. I didn't know there were 2 others.
