Books read recently

With Crayons:

George and the Chinese Lady, by Myra Scovel (we've also started Hana's New Home)

Three chapters of The Family From One End Street, but Crayons decided she'd had enough of that one for the time being.

Mostly library books:

Lawrence Block, Telling Lies for Fun and Profit: A Manual for Fiction Writers (warning--Mr. Block has written some rough stuff and he draws from his own examples in this otherwise helpful book)

Joanne Greenberg, With the Snow Queen (short stories) (reread)

Anne Tyler, Back When We Were Grownups (reread)

Anne Tyler, Searching for Caleb
(I didn't think I'd like this one as much, but I got drawn into it more as it went on.)

On the shelf waiting to be read:

The Book of Sorrows, by Walter Wangerin Jr.

Where the Road Goes, by Joanne Greenberg
