What's on Your Nightstand, 3.24.09

It's time to check-in once again and update you on what I've read this month. I think this is probably my favorite carnival! It provides me with great motivation and accountability to accomplish the reading goals I set for myself.

So, what were my goals for March?How did I do?

Well, I haven't finished The Ministry of Motherhood, yet. But, I am working through it each week with several other women. You are welcome to join us on Fridays for a very informal book club. Whether you joins or not, feel free to read my Intro, Grace, and Inspiration posts and add your thoughts in the comments.

I didn't make it to the library in time to pick up a Beatrix Potter book but I did find some fun videos on YouTube and websites with activities for kids.

As for the Thomas Nelson book, it finally arrived but I've barely had time to open the cover.

I have read one book that wasn't on the list, Henry and Ribsy by Beverly Cleary for the 5 Minutes for Books Children's Classics Carnival (dog theme). I'll save my review for next month but let me just say that we returned to the library after Will and I finished this book and brought home 2 others about the same characters!

Overall I'm feeling very positive about my reading this month. I knew going into March that I wouldn't have much time for reading so I'm pleased with what I have accomplished. April is also going to be super busy so I'm not expecting much personal reading for next month either.

Oh, we LOVE the Beverly Cleary books! We've read Henry Huggins and Henry and Ribsy. I remember my brother and sister reading books about some of the other characters from Henry's neighborhood. We've also read Socks, a couple of the Ralph S. Mouse books, and are about to finish Emily's Runaway Imagination. Such fun books! Enjoy!

Oh, I love Henry and his beloved dog. Someday we'll travel out to Portland and hang with the Beverly Cleary statues... someday!

Happy reading!

I remember Beverly Cleary. How fun! We just finished Farmer Boy and are continuing through the Little House series. Farmer Boy was confusing for Mia because Mary and Laura aren't in the book! :) Way to go on your reading!

Oh, I didn't even think of Ribsy for the Children's CLassics carnival. It might make a good read aloud, huh?

I just love those Garth Williams Little House drawings.

I think you did well with your reading too!

I love the Henry and Ribsy books. So fun. And Farmer Boy *might* be my favorite LIWilder book, but I'd hate to actually commit to one. The problem with it though, is it makes me want to cook all the time because of all the food in it. Yum. :)

I'm broken hearted I didn't do this carnival-2 months in a row now! But I'm going to work on my blog the month of April (thank you), and then be ready to go all out in May!

I have just been thinking of starting to read the Little House series to my son for the Read Together challenge at Snapshot. I can't even tell you how many times I have read those books!!

I'm just now catching up with the WOYN posts and am actually doing a giveaway as part of mine. :)
