An Open Book

Open Book

 

I’m linking up with Carolyn Astfalk and Catholic Mom for “An Open Book.”

Here’s what I’ve been reading:

Angels All Around Us by Anthony DeStefano

I received this review copy last year and have finally gotten around to reading it.  It’s a beautifully written book that’s hard to put down.  I am thoroughly enjoying it and will be passing it on to others in my family when I’ve finished.

The Family Tree Problem Solvers: Tried and True Tactics for Tracing Elusive Ancestors

I haven’t read this yet, but I’m hoping this book will help me to trace two lines of my family tree that don’t seem to have any information on Ancestry.

Full Cycle by Christopher Blunt

There aren’t too many novels that both parents and kids can read and enjoy equally. Full Cycle is one of those few. Despite a physical disability that makes him one of the least-athletic kids in school, 11-year-old Alex Peterson sets his sights on something crazy: doing the 200-mile Seattle to Portland bicycle ride in a single day. The only way he can get there is to convince his father to return to the sport and train with him as a real partner, and this leads to some of the plot’s most captivating twists. Full Cycle is not just a story about a bicycle competition. It’s a story of a father-son relationship; it’s a story of the importance of working together as a team, about encouraging our children to reach beyond their limits. It’s a wonderful story about focusing on abilities, not disabilities. This would be an ideal novel for a parent and child to read together. Highly recommend.

That’s it for me, although I’ve been reading submitted manuscripts and projects for editing.

  1. I loved Full Cycle! It would make a perfect family movie, at least back when Hollywood was making those. I think I have the Angels book, too – should get to that! Thanks for linking up, Ellen!
