What are you reading and why?

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

  1. 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

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.
