    Temptation

    December 17, 2010 by Brandy Vencel

    Remember how I said I was only reading fiction literature during Advent? Well. Um. Ahem. I seem to have sumbled a bit. And it was my own fault! I preordered a certain book a couple months ago, without knowing that I’d have sworn off nonfiction for the season. Said book was delivered yesterday upon my doorstep.

    TEN WAYS TO DESTROY THE IMAGINATION OF YOUR CHILD
    Ten Ways to Destroy the Imagination of Your Child
    by Anthony Esolen

    Naturally, I read the introduction aloud to my husband, who tolerates things like that.

    It’s like a drug. It calls to me, and it is all I can do to avoid it.

    Even now, it beckons.

    Did any of you get yours in the mail as well?

    And, more importantly, have you talked Cindy into hosting a book club?

    I got one, read the first chapter (about 5 times) and promptly ordered 3 more for gifts.

    I have that book on my TBR list…though it’s a little late for me to be learning about this topic. 😉
    I’d like to listen in on the book club if it happens.

    I’ve got my copy!

    I meant to say on the post where you blamed me for coming up with your literature resolution: Isn’t it funny what different meanings people can pull away from one’s words? 🙂 I meant that I don’t listen to lectures and audio books much during Christmas simply because I *do* listen to Christmas music a lot. If there’s only one month in which to get one’s fill of it, one must feast while one can! 🙂 I am of Cindy’s persuasion when it comes to Christmas music, though my collection is still smallish.

    I’d love a book club, wherever hosted. I’m not sure I’m up to hosting it myself, though.
