Summer Reading

Caroline and I are both participating in the Cedar Park Library Summer Reading Club. We each have a log to track the number of minutes we read each day. Only library materials count, though. For every 200 minutes Caroline reads (or is read to) she gets a small prize. For every 400 minutes I read (and reading to Caroline counts), I am entered into drawings for prizes. We read anyway, but I love a little added excitement. We checked out a baby sign language book for daytime reading, and _Ten in the Bed_ for bedtime reading.

In other reading news, I am the "host" for my next book club meeting. Host is an odd term for it, as we meet in a restaurant. The host chooses several books and the group votes. I was very proud of my selections and am really enjoying the winner, which I checked out from the CP library, so it counts on my log.

My choices were:
Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiquro **winner**
The Girl in Hyacinth Blue by Susan Vreeland
The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory
Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
A Yellow Raft in Blue Water by Michael Dorris
