What Are You Reading? was first hosted by Sheila at Book Journeys. If you’d rather follow folks who are reading books for grown ups, you should follow her Monday meme. I will be (mostly) participating in the kidlit version of this meme (at least I think so….right now).
Listening to – Wild by Cheryl Strayed Really enjoying this one. Almost finished. Makes me think about my mom a lot.
In print- The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum I’m not sure if I’ve ever read this book. I was inspired to read it after attending a lung cancer support group meeting with my dad…there was a man there (a man who has been a cancer survivor for a LONG time…which is awesome) who asked me if I knew what color Dorothy’s shoes were in Wizard of Oz. When he asked, I knew there had to be some tricky answer. Of course, everyone says that they are red….are they? He said I’d have to read the book to find out. So, I am. I do remember going to a little bookstore in Irmo (near Kroger) FOREVER ago and getting some of the Oz books with my grandfather. I remember him reading Ozma of Oz to me. I loved it. I don’t remember reading the rest of the series though…next challenge, perhaps?
As always, a big stack of Caldecotts for #nerdcott
I hope you have a wonderful week!
