Another week has gone by, I hope summer slows down soon so that it doesn't pass by too fast! I'm getting some reading down, it is a nice break from cleaning. In the summer I always make sure I do a really good cleaning of my house. I'm talking about moving furniture, and breaking out the polish! I always give myself 30 minutes to clean and then as a reward 10 minutes of reading time. I set the timer and I'm very strict with myself.
I'm still getting through The Emerald Atlas. I'm really enjoying the story! I also read this week a very quick chapter book, The 13-Storey Treehouse by Andy Griffiths. Click here for a summary from Goodreads. I can see many of my kids loving this book. The kids who like Diary of Wimpy Kid will really enjoy this book. It was not a favorite of mine, but I can see how the humor will appeal to kids. Though I would love to have a machine that will shoot marshmallows into my mouth whenever I want! There is going to be a sequel, The 26-Storey Treehouse. According to Amazon, the release date for this book is April 1, 2014.
This is going to be a short post this week, because I hear the vacuum cleaner calling my name!
Happy Cleaning!! I mean Happy Reading!!
