Here's what I am reading! Or, need to get read!
Books I forgot to list above and ARE INCLUDED IN THIS Challenge:
Books that ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THIS CHALLENGE, but received AFTER I posted this post that I will NOT get to till AFTER the Challenge.
*The Boy Who Flew With Eagles Ben Woodard Author - Middle Grade Book - This book is SUPER neat! The author and I are doing an experiment with my son who HATES reading!! This book is about a boy and an Eagle that soars. I am to sit down with my son and we are going to read this book together and see what HE thinks! I will let the author know. My son is 14, but VERY immature for his age. He is repeating the 8th grade. He had ADHD and the medications he takes causes him to have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder pretty bad. He must touch EVERYTHING 4x ALL the time. It is VERY frustrating for him. I feel SO bad for him because he has come crying to me asking me why does he HAVE to do this? REALLY pulls at your heartstrings, huh? UGH! I wish I could take it away!
*The Man in the Cinder Clouds Rick Daley Independent Author
*This is another book in which, like the book above, it is about a very energetic boy and Christmas. I am going to do this SAME experiment above!! I think this is SO cool to try out!! This is also a Middle Grade book!
We'll see how my son likes doing this??? Eeeeks? "TWO" books!! He knows about the
'1', but now I have added a 2nd one for him!! That is okay, though, because this Christmas we are ONLY purchasing toys where he MUST sit still and play with! This is intentional because he already knows he want to be a Marine. He has an Air-Soft Gun ARSENAL!!! He has SOOO many guns, and has asked for ANOTHER one for Christmas! I talked to my father-in-law, who happens to be dying, but introduced him to collecting Die-Cast Collectible cars and motorcycles! My FIL, even though he is dying, is STILL collecting AND building scenes from his hospital bed of gas stations, car dealers, and some Airplanes! How's that! He is buying my son some Die-Cast collectibles for him to play with. I WISH I had this photo as a digital photo, but, my FIL sent us money to purchase a shelving unit. We purchased a plastic one for my son. It has four shelves. EVERY motorcycle is perfectly stood up by it's kick-stand, and every car is perfectly placed. He loves these! Now, allow me to tell you "I" have knocked some of these over, and he takes the time to re-stand EVERY vehicle that "I" knocked over! ALL 4 shelves are FILLED!! This will be the PERFECT Xmas gift! I am also buying him a Wright Brothers Wooden Air Plane to put together! I'm excited over this! I think he'll LOVE it!!
I will let you know how the experiments go, IF you are intersted!!
**These are books I received AFTER I posted this post. These books are NOT a part of this Challenge! It's a nice way to keep track of what I need to read!! I will 'try' to get to these books before 12-21, but it is doubtful. That is NOT to say I won't try!! I WILL try!! I think some of these are going to have to go into the Winter Reading Challenge 2012! By listing them here as I get them is a nice way to keep track of what I will need to read for the NEXT CHALLENGE, the Winter Reading Challenge 2012!
