He was more than a little excited. This year he read 50 new books, which took us quite a while since he likes to read the same books over and over.
For kids who are a little older, there is Ruby Holler, by Sharon Creech (who wrote my most favorite children's book ever, Walk Two Moons).
And for adults, there's Before You Kindness, by Chris Bohjalian. This doesn't have the end twist like Midwives or The Double Bind, but it's still a pretty good read.
If you would like to win these books, just leave a comment on this post telling us about your favorite book--it can be any type of book you want. Post your comment by midnight Sunday night and I will draw a winner. Good luck!
