2010 book wrap-up
Book 24: The Time Travelers Wife by Audrey Niffeneger
My first impression of this book was that it was too slow moving and sappy, but the story grew on me and I eventually decided that I liked the book a lot. It is a rare and impossible love story that you want to believe is true. Even though the obvious time traveling part is far from logical- but isn't there an element of the unexplainable in all true love?
Book 25: A Literary Christmas
I didn't finish this book, but it was a great one to read at Christmas for just a story or two at night, when I didn't have time to do a lot of reading anyway.
Book 26: Grace Based Parenting
This is my favorite Christian parenting book. It's all about parenting the way God parents us- with tons of grace and second chances. Highly recommend!
Book 27: How to Raise an Amazing Child the Montessori Way
I borrowed this from Sami's preschool. A good, easy to understand overview of Montessori with solid, practical ways to apply it in the home.
