Bookends: March 2015

I had this big April Fools plan to intersperse some fake titles and authors in among the titles I actually read in March, but then my son spent last night upchucking hourly and my creativity flew the coop. So despite today’s date, I’m playing it straight (even the Herodotus).

Here’s what I read in March:

Grown-ups’ Books:

The Positive Power of Negative Thinking by Julie Norem (for the 2015 TBR challenge)

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

Night Film by Marisha Pessl

Kids’ Books (read-alouds and audiobooks):

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott (re-read, audiobook)

The Wolves of Willoughby Chase by Joan Aiken (audiobook)

Paddington Helps Out by Michael Bond (read-aloud)

The Penderwicks by Jeanne Birdsall (re-read, audiobook)

The Penderwicks on Gardam Street by Jeanne Birdsall (re-read, audiobook)

Alvin Ailey by Andrea Davis Pinkney (read-aloud)

Currently Reading

  • The Peabody Sisters by Megan Marshall (Sisters Book Club March Selection)
  • The Histories by Herodotus (for my Cavalcade of Classics, as a read-aloud with my daughter, skipping some of the more questionable parts)
  • Paddington at Work by Michael Bond (read-aloud with my son)
  • Called to Community by Anita Farber-Robertson, Dorothy May Emerson, and Mary McKinnon Ganz
  • The Simpler Family by Christine Klein
