I am changing things around a little…
What are you reading and why?
I am spending lots of quality time with travel books
We are planning to visit Alberta and British Columbia this summer and I am in planning mode. Booked the flights and most of our hotels rooms, I have our National Park Discovery Pass and I am waiting on our doctor to sign for Emily’s Access pass. This is all really exciting.
I am also reading this book: Gut
Raising a child with Cri du Chat syndrome, I have spent many hours learning about physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, learning styles and many other organ functions, what they do, how they work and how to help it all work better.
I am 17 years into this journey and here I am reading about the gut!
So tell me, what are you reading and why?
If you like to read about Emily and would like timely updates of little and big things happening in her life, you should follow Lessons from my daughter‘s page on Facebook. This is where I post tidbits of information before I have time to write a proper blog post. Some stories might never get a full blog post! Join us there too!
Find more about about Cri du Chat syndrome at 5p- Society
Emily has a her own page in the family stories , you can find it here: Emily
You can also find me on Twitter at @plebrass
I am on Pinterest too… one day I will figure out what to do there other than finding cool recipes but meanwhile, you can find me here: Lessons from my Daughter
I have just finished reading a book called Gone But Not Forgotten: the history of all over advertising (AOA) on buses in Australia – I did a book swap. My friend lent me Gone But Not Forgotten as he has a book of mine called Australia’s Road Transport Heritage. This book is written by the CEO of Australia’s National Road Transport Hall of Fame, Liz Martin OAM, and features the animals and trucks that shaped Australian road transport over the last 200 years
Sounds interesting. Thanks.
I’m reading Bossy Pants by Tina Fey. I was invited to join a book club, and that was this month’s book. It’s a funny, easy read so far.
Thank you. I’ll check it out… Maybe one day I’ll join a book club! 🤓
i’m reading ‘go dog go’ to my class ) looks like you have a great trip ahead –
I’ll look at go dog go … Maybe Em would like it. Her school is reading ” the Art of racing in the rain”. She’s reading it with her class.
I am in between books just finished: A daughter of Iraq and reading the autobiography of The Ruler of Dubai
Thank you for sharing. I will look into those.
My pleasure 🙂
I am Malala, the story of the girl who was shot at by the Taliban for standing up for girls’ education. Many of us complain about having to go to school, but there, they don’t have a chance to do it
That sounds like a difficult book to read. I will check it out. I like true stories or books inspired by real events. Thank you for sharing.
Oh,and she became the youngest recipient of the noble peace prize
I’m reading a new series (to me) by Michael Clynes. Tudor murder mysteries. Once I finished my masters and after retiring from teaching, I read for pleasure.
I will have to check it. I love to read, always have. Now I read more blog than books… But that’s still reading 🙂
what fun that will be…..kat
I mostly read for university – I am currently reading the newly released final report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada as I am an advocator for aboriginal rights. I am also trying to read classics so I have started Oliver Twist 🙂 You should check out Goodreads, it’s a great place to connect with others through books.
Thank you June. I read books to understand Emily better /make me a better mom and business/leadership books to better myself at work. Once in awhile I’ll throw in there an easy read and I’m looking at Increasing my French reading… Maybe classics
Ma langue maternelle est aussi le français, je vais à l’Université de Moncton et j’ai honte de dire que je lis très peu en français
J’essaie de lire dans la langue maternelle de l’auteur…
Right now I am reading the new Nicholas Sparks novel called See Me. It’s really good!
I will have to check it out
Thanks for sharing!
