This month, Amy has been fighting the flu and Camille has spent September moving to another state and then unpacking and packing up again for a wedding 11 hours away. It has been a month where reading has been much more sparse than usual, however there has been some.
First and foremost, I picked up this adorable little poetry book by T. S. Eliot, Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats. It is charming and funny, quite British and quirky, and sums up the antics and attitudes of cats rather perfectly. The kids were laughing at the first poem especially hard.
I’ve also been enjoying the monthly bundles of information and encouragement over at Wild + Free. This month’s collection of goodness is entitles Mornings and has got me thinking about how to structure our time in our new place.
While this one I’ve been listening to rather than sitting down to read it, I’m still counting it here. It is getting me through some of our unpacking and I’ve never read it before. I’m not sure how I’ve managed to make it to my mid-thirties and being rather bookish without reading Pride and Prejudice, but I’m now remedying that.
I also got this in the mail and could have read it in a sitting. I slowed myself down on purpose because her points are worth mulling over slowly, so now I am 75% finished and really enjoying this book immensely.
