What are you reading?
I re-read the entire Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins after a friend near Asheville, NC began talking about the film crew in NC where they are filming the first movie. After being introduced to the first book The Hunger Games through my older daughter’s school reading list, we were hooked, plowing through Catching Fire and Mockingjay. The books, aimed at young adults, are a little too intense for my 8-year old, so we aren’t reading them around the kitchen table as a family book.
Spirituality You Can Live With: Stronger Faith in 30 Days by Chris Padgett is currently on my night table as my current book to be reviewed for the Catholic Company. I need to move this book to another reading spot, because lately I’ve been too tired to read anything thoughtful in the last thirty minutes before sleep. It’s especially been difficult with my husband chuckling and reading snippets to me from Rachel Balducci’s How do you Tuck in a Superhero that I bought for his iPad Kindle app.
