Twilight is the first book in this series with the same name by Stephanie Meyer. 17 year-old Isabella Swan moves from sunny Phoenix, Arizona to cloudy Forks, Washington to live with her dad. There she meets the mysterious Edward Cullen. Who is he? Or more like it, what is he? A great girl-meets-vampire-and-they-fall-in-love-though-he-wants-to-suck-her-blood kind of story. I thought this story would just be some corny YA romance, but I was so wrong. There were so many parts that had me holding my breath or clutching my chest.
Right now I am in the middle of the engaging memoir of A Scent a God by Beryl Singleton Bissell. It's a great read even from page one. Sadly, I have to temporary put all non-school reading on hold while I research and write my paper on home schools and what public schools can learn from them. I have about five books to read within the next week, so my life will be like a week-long Read-a-thon. I'm going to read:
How Children Learn -John Holt
Teach your Own - John Holt
Coloring Outside the Lines - Roger Schank
Home Learning Year by Year - Rebecca Rupp
Guerrilla Learning- - Grace Llewellyn
Wish me luck.
