march books

March’s books seemed to hit one end of the spectrum or the other – either solidly awesome or solidly average (with one solidly terrible in there).

  • The Last Time I Saw You by Elizabeth Berg

Grade: C.  A solidly average book.  Quick reading, kind of fluffy, neither terrible nor memorable.
  • The History of Love by Nicole Krauss
Grade: A+.  Loved this book.  So well-written.  Loved and would highly recommend! 

  • A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson (nonfiction)
Grade: B+.  Thank you, Billy Bryson, for getting me through 6 hours at the Oklahoma City airport.  Entertaining and interesting. 

  • The Three Weissmanns of Westport by Cathleen Schine
Grade: D.  D as in don’t even bother. 

  • The Four Seasons by Mary Alice Munroe
Grade: C.  Another solidly average book.  Quick, kind of fluffy, forgettable, but not painful to read. 

  • Anne of Windy Poplars by L.M. Montgomery
Grade: A+.  The library doesn’t have any more of the Anne of Green Gables series on audio, so I’m switching to real books.  I love all of these. 

  • Anne of the Island by L.M. Montgomery (audiobook)
Grade: A+.  *sigh*  Anne and Gilbert, finally together!
  • Anne of Avonlea by L.M. Montgomery (audiobook)

Grade: A+.  I’ve raved enough about these, right?

What books have you been reading (and loving) lately?

  1. you are so amazing and inspiring – i haven’t even read this many books this year
    i love you and your love for learning and education!
    i pray your children inherit this wonderful trait from you!

  2. Looking forward to checking out some of the books on your list! Love finding good recommendations!

    Among my recently read favorite books are:
    “Sleepwalk with Me” by Mike Birbiglia. Funny and quick read. Made me laugh out loud!
    “Run Like a Girl” by Mina Samuels, a nice bit of inspiration and food for thought about what sports, particularly running, mean in the lives of women.
    “Pink Boots and a Machete: by Mireya Mayor. A bit of a “celebrity” biography/memoir of the NatGeo explorer (whom I wasn’t familiar with to start) but a solid B+ if you find outdoor adventure interesting (which I do!).
