  1. I can’t wait to hear what you think of Deconstructing Penguins! I’ve also been seeing Teaching from Rest a good bit, so I’m curious about it. I get a peaceful vibe from it.

    I made myself delete my netgalley account, but I haven’t unsubscribed from the e-mails yet. It makes me a little sad to see what I’m missing. 😉

  2. You’re so close to finishing! I need to be so one-track minded with reading Les Miserables, but I know I won’t be. ha. I do want to spend several weeks more exclusively in it though, so I can at least get far enough in to want to keep reading. You’ve got some good upcoming reads to look forward to!

    • I also meant to add, we are starting our 6th year of homeschooling too. I think that I must add Teaching from Rest to my list to read before school starts.

  3. I read Great Expectations for high school and then again later in life. It’s one of those stories I enjoy coming back to. Deconstructing Penguins is another I enjoyed and wish I had on my shelf to look back on.
    Right now I’m reading Life’s Compass for a Eternal Treasure by Sarah Lindberg and Cavendon Hall. Cavendon Hall is much like the show Downton Abbey, actually almost too similar.

  4. Deconstructing Penguins is a good book and inspires me to discuss literature but I wish it had more of a “here’s how to do it” section.

    I just bought Teaching From Rest too – perfect book to read before starting a new school year.

  5. I remember reading potions of GE in high school; I have never read the full text. My daughter who loves Dickens says that GE is one of her favorites.

    I always get some great read ideas from your blog. Just added a few to my list! Thanks!

  6. The things you plan to read are inspiring in an overwhelming sort of way. 🙂 I’m just trying to plan my children’s reading, and that’s because I need to order them from the library beforehand… I’m hoping to be back for Read-Aloud Thursday next week.

  7. I read GE 3 yrs back, along with my daughter when she read it for school. Sadly, while I thought it was okay, it wasn’t a total winner in my book — it was fine, but just not the WOW I was kind of expecting after devoting so much time to it! I will be anxious to hear your thoughts when done!

  8. Hmm…I feel sure that I read Great Expectations in high school, but I struggle to recall anything about it. Sometimes I despair as to whether I’ll ever actually be a well-read person (up to my own standards.)

    I’ll be interested in hearing your thoughts on Teaching from Rest – the general concept sounds great, I wonder how one accomplishes such a thing?

  9. Presently I am reading:

    (1) Amish Peace (Suzanne Woods Fisher)

    (2) Never Give Up (Joyce Meyer)

    (3) waiting on my next book for review to arrive soon.
