Current Books: I am reading Mare’s War, because I failed miserably at giving up fiction for Lent. It was actually easier the year I gave up all pleasure reading for Lent. Anyway, Mare’s War fell into my hands because I just wrote a character who served in the WAC during WWII, and I was interested in the subject. The boys and I are reading the third Harry Potter book. For Homeschool, Haydn and I are nearing the end of Story of the World Volume I and also enjoying a biography of Temple Grandin.
