Dylan Reads His First Book!

Dylan Reads His First Book

It was a very exciting moment around here. He did it all by himself while in bed last night (after he ran out of creative bedtime excuses) and we ran up – and he read it to us again! The book is called Mac, and it’s book 4 of the Bob [...]

The Sunday Salon: Another Book-Buying Binge

Yesterday, as part of my major procrastination plan, I got my husband to drop Dylan and I off at Chapters while he went and did the groceries. Having Dylan with me is supposed to stop me from plunging into another major book-buying binge, but what can I say? I’m very resourceful.

Magazine reading doesn’t actually count [...]

The Sunday Salon: The Secret Order of the Gumm Street Girls

Earlier this week I read The Secret Order of the Gumm Street Girls by Elise Primavera, a book which I added to my to-be-read pile last month.
This is one of those books that brought me right back to childhood, which was filled with the magic and fantasy of Roald Dahl, E. Nesbitt, Edward Eager, [...]

Book-Buying Binge

I am scary when I go on a book-buying binge. It’s something that affects me seasonally; looking back on the past three or four years, it’s something that I tend to do twice a year: first, shortly into the new year, and then in the summer, around my birthday.
My explanation for the New Year buying [...]
