Things to look forward to

If you have been reading my blog for more than a week, you might know I am reviewing for the The Old Schoolhouse Crew and some book publishers. If you have read any of my posts with reviews, thank you. I feel blessed because I have received some great products.  I am grateful that I had the opportunity to meet new authors. One memorable one is Jan Watson.  I read her historical fiction, just for fun. I think sometimes when we are so wrapped up in homeschooling, it is easy to miss reading for pleasure. I have recently finished all of her books, thanks to a few late nights and our state-wide interlibrary loan.  

I have some reviews in the works. I thought I would share what is coming up:

  • 'Foundlings', a new Christian book series by Matthew Christian Harding, who has a great conversion testimony.
  • 'Latin Is Not So Tough' level 3 from Greek N Stuff. Paperboy is using this curriculum, he is only in week 3. I will review this in April, he should be through level 3 by then. His only past experience in Latin has been Rummy Roots. 
  • PG Key which can be found here. It should arrive in the mail in a few days.
  • The Write Foundation Level 2. Random and Paperboy will be using this writing program. This curriculum is authored by a homeschooling parent.
  • A daily devotional sits by my bedside. Look forward to my thoughts on 'The One Year Book of Encouragement' by Harold Myra. This is a timely book. There are just seasons in my life when I can't take on another challenge.  "Encouragement welcomed here!" It's my motto for this fall.

How about you. Are you reading anything for pleasure? Please share, I love to hear of a new book, author or series.

I welcome reader comments with open arms. I also understand if you aren't the commenting or hugging type of person, you can drop me an email at accidentallyhomeschooling@gmail.com.

I am not doing any reading stictly for pleasure- I am trying to get/keep my focus, so I am rereading Simplicity Parenting and Teach Like Your Hair is on Fire.

I look forward to your reviews! :)

I really enjoy biographies and autobiographies. Two that stand out in my mind that I have read recently are Mao's Last Dancer and Leaving Glorytown. For some real down time reading I indulge in magazines left behind by patrons of the library, Better Homes and Gardens, People, Real Simple, More and that kind of thing :)
