Book #2

So for February I read Ender's Game, which was a completely different novel than the Memory Keeper's Daughter. I enjoyed the faster pace and sci-fi feel. I'm a big fan of Ray Bradbury and C.S. Lewis, so this type of stuff entertains me. It was a young adult book so that always helps with the entertainment factor. I did glaze over a bit during the battle scenes and battle talk, but overall I enjoyed the read. I'm trying to mix up the genres each month, so for March I'll be reading One of Ours by Willa Cather.

Sweet! I was convinced I wanted to name my first boy Ender in high school. And I love Willa Cather! This is fun. Keep me posted.

I totally love Willa Cather. I just read Song of the Lark in January, but O Pioneers and My Antonia are my favorites. You will have to let me know how One of Ours goes!

Ender's Game is definitely a classic. I'm liking this book a month thing you've got going! Hope you keep sharing.

So Jessie, I'm up late scouring the internet for a cute girls skirt tutorial. I happen upon this site called the Secret Stitch Club. Looks cute ... scrolling ... and find this huge wall art portrait of YOU? What the heck? Then I look at the girls in apron pic. that I saw on your site once. Marci showed it to me, and every now and again I check in on you. Anyway, was totally fun to see you and a little about what's going on. Did you know I took a knitting class once with Orson Scott Card's mom? That baby girl is Ador . A . ble!!!

Hi Suzanne! It's been so long since I've seen you! Thanks for checking in on me. How funny that you found our sewing blog; I've been doing it for about a year and am loving it.

Mr. Eisley read that to our 8th grade class, and then we "played" Ender's game when we finished it. I don't remember anything really, except the game we played with the lights off - does that tell you how with it I was at age 13? Wow.

I'm glad you liked it - maybe I'll give it a try again.

I keep hearing about this book and have yet to read it. But I'm seeing that we have similar tastes in a lot of things so I may just have to go check it out. Can't wait to see what other books you read. I love this book-a-month thing, I may just have to copy you.
