What we are reading

In addition to cooking (and running, so I can justify all the food), I love to read.  And I love to read to my boys.  So I wanted to include an occasional post about what we are reading.

Right now I am re-reading Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte and LOVING it.  Usually, I go for lighter fare, but this is what the students are reading and I always re-read with them.  If I don't, it's difficult to answer their questions - my memory isn't what it used to be.

But oh, something about Heathcliff - tortured soul - always makes my heart ache for him.  I've really just started, so the beginning part where everyone is so mean to him - something in my mother's heart wants to adopt him!

And with the boys tonight, we read Harold and the Purple Crayon.  It's older, but it is a classic for a reason.  Plus, it's a great calming book - I love anything where the title character goes to sleep on the last page.  It gives me hope that my little men will do likewise.

So, that's what we are reading!
