Just finished, How to Catch a Frog and Other Stories of Family, Love, Dysfunction, Survival, and DIY. -- really funny, heartwarming stuff.

Now I'm on to Romantic Outlaws: The Extraordinary Lives of Mary Wollstonecraft and her Daughter Mary Shelley which is just so well written and a page turner and just so unexpectedly revealing, I love it.

Wow, looks like nobody read in 2016. tongue I'm not a big reader so I'm one to talk.

Right now, I'm reading The Charimaker's Notebook by Peter Galbert.

Re: what are we reading?

With three youngest kids: The Wind In The Willows. That is a helluva good book.  Before that we read Huck Finn. (When it was his turn, my older boy would not read the "N" word aloud, and insisted on inserting the word "slave". I do not use the word myself, but when it was my turn I did certainly read it).  Before that we read the entire Little House series by Laura Ingalls Wilder.

Re: what are we reading?

So awesome, Jicky — loved all those! May I also recommend Johnny Tremaine and Caddie Woodlawn and Anne of Green Gables. Little Men by Louisa May Alcott is also a hoot! (So is Little Women, but Little Men has a bit more adventure an wackiness.)

I loved the Great Brain series (about Catholic boys in Utah in like the 1880s, then they end up at a Jesuit school, it's very funny, full of swindles, childhood abuses and injustices, pranks, and near-catastrophes).

Of course the Narnia series is superb!

Re: what are we reading?

Currently reading Miles Davis' Autobiography, which took me to Theoloneous Monk's music and although I haven't listened to that particular album yet, I noticed he's got one called, Brilliant Corners. Ella Fitzgerald has one called, Brighten the Corner.

Are those metaphors? Idioms? Metaoms? Idiors? Omoms? Metaphors ioms? Idtaiomeomsoms?
