    Book a Week 2016 - BW7: be my valentine!

    Hello everyone Kareni I'll have to add some of those titles to my TBR. :) I am off this week and planning on doing loads of reading. I just finished Brotherhood in Death. A series I read for the relationships. I am now reading Strong Signal by Megan Erickson and Santino Hassell I am also starting to plan lit history for next year. We are thinking of focusing on migration/diaspora stories.

    2016 Newbery and Caldecott winners!

    The War that Saved My Life has been on my TBR pile for a while and the others look really interesting. I haven't read any of them but they do all look good and I'll be picking up several of them for my nieces.

    Book a Week 2016 - BW3: Martin Luther King

    In the summer of 2008 I registered voters in NC. The one individual I will never forget was an older deaf African American woman who had never been registered before. She was so excited to finally vote. Thank you for that post Eliana. It inspired me to find something MLK for the firsties dictation this week. I'll have to check what I read this week, which probably tells you a great deal about the reading :D. I'm running away to a spa this weekend and bringing Utvandrarna by Vilhelm Moberg to try again.

    Need sad or depressing books-cross posted-Help Me Hive

    The Brothers Lionheart by Astrid Lindgren
  7. Confession time: 1. The only Narnia books I really like are the ones that feature Lucy. 2. I like my Tuesday morning class because I can read in it. A quick 15-30 minute lecture on whatever sub-unit we are doing and then let them work on problems in the book and I can read my book, or come and read here. Perfection...except it makes me feel like a lousy teacher at times

    Children's Stories Made Horrific - Curious George

    I've always disliked Curious George, even as a child. He is kidnapped by the man in the yellow hat. And don't get me started on Babar.
  9. The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman is one of my favourite October books Here is David Bowie's 100 favourite books http://electricliterature.com/david-bowies-100-favorite-books/
  10. Thanks for the tip and I totally agree with you about the last book in the Clare series, I didn't like the ending either
  11. So far this year I've read: 1. Bear, Otter and the Kid by TJ Klune 2. Who We Are by TJ Klune 3. Helping Hand by Jay Northcote 4. The Art of Breathing by TJ Klune 5. Tied to Trouble by Megan Erickson 6. Let Love Live by Melissa Collins 7. At War by Andria Large 8. War Torn by Andria Large All of them are m/m romances. Numbers 1, 2,4,7 and 8 all deal with mental illness (Anxiety, Panic attacks/disorder, PTSD and Depression). The last three I read yesterday and today, and I am almost done the final book in the War trilogy. Then I am going to read The Score by Elle Kennedy and then I am going to get to January's classic/non-fiction. I think it will be a non-fiction. I am feeling non-fictiony
  12. No idea if you like mysteries but I have to recommend Julia Spencer Flemmings Clare Fergusson/Russ Van Alstyne series to anyone who talks about the Episcopal Church (Clare is an Episcopal priest). We have literary people on our money too. The out going 20SEK note had Selma Lagerlöf and the incoming one has Astrid Lindgren (we are currently changing over) Your son is a very smart boy. The Boy and His Horse was always one I skipped.

    Ice-pick Headaches/Migraine Help for 7 yr old dd

    I started getting mine when I was 8. Get a notebook and keep note of triggers. We worked out quite quickly for me that it was light sensitivity and being out in the sun with the sun directly on my head (I was a soccer goalie and I had to start wearing a hat). For me an ice pack on my neck tends to help. Also when taking painkillers combine it with caffeine.

    One of many things I miss with Edinburgh is all the secondhand bookshops. Both for buying books but also for getting rid of books when I moved.
