Are you all still working on the Columbia book?
I've been reading "The Heart is a Lonely Hunter" by Carson McCullers. I've also just finished "Lighting Their Fires" by Rafe Esquith. It was pretty good, but I liked his first book, "Teach Like Your Hair's On Fire" better. Oh! And I read "The Wheel on the School" by Meindert DeJong (who wrote Sixty Fathers). It's on my daughter's reading list for her current history study. Nice children's book - not nearly as intense as Sixty Fathers.
My baby has been sick 2.5 of the last three weeks. First a cold, then a flu virus. Feel sorry for me, please. :-) I have been too tired to stay up late reading.
