is staying indoors with a good book! Here's what I've been reading lately:
Non-fiction account of the excavation of the Steamboat Arabia - I visited the museum in KC earlier this summer and was captivated by it!
Fictionalized story based on real events approx. 100 years ago - I wanted to read this one because my in-laws know the Abernathys in southwest OK. It would be fun to read aloud to younger kids wanting to know how it was in the old west. A little education in there too - I learned how the term "got gypped" originated! An easy, quick read.
Wow, I couldn't hardly put this one down. What every parent fears - having to sit through a trial with your own son. You really feel like you are inside the father's head on this one.
Although I do love to read and have only gotten back into reading for pleasure the last few years, I still feel the familiar feeling since it is now the end of the summer again. Happens every time - it's reading that is entertaining but I need something meaningful again - Bible study. I have found that I can't really be focused on my Bible study while reading other books. So I just don't do it during the school year Bible study. I'm thankful to God for that hole in my heart that says "SO WHAT?" to these.
