Everyone else seems to post a beautiful spring picture to be inspired by - not me! Up here just outside of Boston, we still have some ice and snow in parking lots (although most of it is gone) and I have 2 crocuses that have just started to show a hint of color, but they're not open yet by any means. It was beautiful on Saturday, and if I had thought of it I probably could have gotten a nice picture somewhere, but I didn't, and it's pouring now (although it's 40 so we're all glad that it's not snow)! That's being a New Englander - whenever it rains you shrug and think - could be worse, could be snow.
In any case, it's a great day to snuggle up (with the heat still on, unfortunately) and read a book! What are you reading? Leave a comment to let us know.
I'm in the middle of a fantastic book right now - Sarah's Daughter, by Ruth Bass. Not technically a green read, it's the story of a 14 year old girl in the late 1800s who has to cope with life after her mother dies in an accident. She has a father who expects her to run the household, two siblings to take care of, and dreams of becoming a school teacher. It is so detailed and well written that it makes you feel like you're right there with her. Like the Little House series, it is a green read in the sense that you learn how people survived and thrived with so much less than we feel we need today. But mostly it's just a great book. I got halfway through and decided to read it aloud to my 10 year old daughter, so I'm not going to read ahead on my own - once we catch up to where I got to, we'll discover it together. I do realize how many small details I miss by reading quickly - when I have to read aloud I remember a lot more of the finer points, plus we really enjoy our nightly read and snuggle.
Any great books you can share with us - green or otherwise? And if you've read any books and reviewed them on your blog, please leave us the link and we'll put them up here so everyone can link to them easily. Have a great week!
