Autumn Intentional Reading

For ChocLit Guild:

The Silver Chalice (Thomas B. Costain) (Only 814 pages-think I can make it?)

The Little French Girl (Anne Douglas Sedgwick) (My second time through this year, but I love it!)

Belles on Their Toes (Frank B. Gilbreth and Ernestine Gilbreth Carey) (Cheaper By the Dozen was wonderfully entertaining, and I am looking forward to reading the sequel. This is actually December's selection, so I probably won't have finished it by the end of November...)

Just For Me:

(finish Anne of Green Gables)

Harriet Beecher Stowe and The Beecher Preachers (Jean Fritz)

Much Ado About Nothing (Shakespeare)

The Closing of the American Mind (Allan Bloom)

A Charlotte Mason Education (Catherine Levison)

(This is an ambitious list for me considering the loooong book I have going for book club, but I really want to try to read them all. They should be quick reads, except for The Closing of the American Mind, but I've been told that the first half is wonderful and the second half is impossible to read. Grin. I may be sticking with just the first half.)


The Bible

Lord Bless My Child (William & Nancie Carmichael)

A Tale of Two Cities (Dickens) (almost finished!)

A Year With C.S. Lewis (continued...)

Reading Aloud With Levi:

(finish The Moffats)

Babe: The Gallant Pig (Dick King-Smith)

Homer Price (Robert McCloskey)

Maggie Rose: Her Birthday Christmas (Ruth Sawyer) (One of my all-time favorites!)

Anyone joining me? Leave a link to your list in the comments, and I'll post them in a few days!

It's hard for me to come up with a list of books I will read. Most of my potential reads I glean from blogs like your own, you inspire me!
Right now I'm into the Susan Cooper (The Dark is Rising) series. And because I adore Connie Willis, I'm reading 3 Men in a Boat. After that it's 4 Loves by CS Lewis and I'm tempted to read Uncle Tom's Cabin, from your review.

I loved 3 Men in a Boat! Hilarious! Anything by C.S. Lewis is good... Uncle Tom's Cabin is excellent. Sounds like you have a great list going!
