    January Books

    January 20, 2012 by Brandy Vencel

    Yes, we acquired more books for the family library this month, in spite of a windfall in the month of December. I momentarily wonder why my house isn’t cuter, and then I remember I am too busy buying or trading for books and reading them. It’s a sickness, really.

    Here is what came our way this month:

    Elizabeth, I haven’t read it yet. Do you think it’d be appropriate to read aloud to my children? Thanks!

    Hi Brandy

    We got some new ‘school’ books – history, literature, philosophy – for our Tapestry study. That’s about it.

    I really have had to slow down on the buying (for me) because I just can’t seem to find the time to read. (Although, interestingly enough (to me, anyway), I have been reading “Economic Facts and Fallacies” by Thomas Sowell when I’m hiding in the bathroom. It’s a copy my husband left there and I’ve been reading it in little snatches. It’s been a lot more interesting and easier to read than I had expected. Nice. (Actually, in Australian English, that would be pronounced “Noice.” That last bit was just FYI :oP )

    ….That about nails it. I just came back from an estate sale down the block with 9 old books.
