Finished: A Year Down Yonder

Loved it. Not as much as the first one, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Finished: Danny the Champion of the World

This is the first book by Roald Dahl that I have actually enjoyed. In fact, I like it so much, I'm reading it to the kids.

Finished: Babette's Feast

A collection of short stories (anecdotes of destiny) by Isak Dinesen. Enjoyable first read. No need to reread, except for the first, and most famous.

Finished: A Day No Pigs Would Die

Another goodie. For the kids to read later (high school).

Finished: The Cay

Excellent. Definitely a re-read by the kiddos when they are "of age".

Finished: Dead or Alive

Tom Clancy - you should write your own books. They're much better that way. Once they were timeless. Now you're adding current pop culture references like Starbucks and Angelina Jolie, and it's just not nearly as much fun. But I'll read them anyway. Because I still like them.
