It’s Tuesday! I am joining in the fun, created by Niki at Daydream Reader, called Treat Tuesday, where we snap a quick photo of what we are reading and a treat we are enjoying. And thanks to Shannon (aka Ms. Houghton) for the meme logo seen above. Inspired by my Twitter pal, Maria, I’m including what my kids are enjoying as well. Follow all the treat fun on Twitter under the hash tag #TreatTuesday.
Small (age 8, third grade): Staying Together (Main Street Book #10) by Ann M. Martin. She was reading this last week, but took a break to read some titles from her school library visit, but she’s back to this one again. Her literary fantasy would be meeting Ann Martin; of this I’m certain.
Tall (age 11, fifth grade): Diary of Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever by Jeff Kinney. Tall is a huge re-reader. I can’t even tell you how many times she’s read this book or others in the series. I think she likes the comfort of knowing the plot.
Me: Bomb: The Race to Build—and Steal—the World’s Most Dangerous Weapon, by Steve Sheinkin. This book is so fascinating and approachable, and exciting! Yes, a non-fiction text with the feel of a spy novel. While I’m not done with it, I can see why this one caught the eye of all the many awards panels that recognized it this year. World War II-buff adults should check this one is out. I’m amazed by what I don’t know about the Manhattan Project.
Kit Kat bars . . . a personal favorite. We’re downhill skiers and these were leftover from our latest supply of “Chair Bait”, or treats that we can quickly feed sagging kids on the chairlift to perk them up for a few more runs, whether it’s before lunch or before we head for home. FYI — we also have “Trail Bait” for hiking. 🙂
Hope you’re savoring whatever it is you’re reading and snacking upon!
