River Pic, Father's Day, Mike to Camp, Book Talk

Samer shared this on Facebook a few days ago when he was walking by the Main River in Frankfurt. 

How was your weekend?  Father's Day was yesterday and I got together with my parents, siblings and their families. Of course we all had to love on Zach and Michael. Speaking of Michael, he is going to camp this week.  He went last year for the first time and absolutely loved it!  A whole week of spending time with his friends and having fun and learning about Jesus and buying Sour Punch candy at the canteen! What's not to love about that? He is incredibly excited and has been looking forward to it for weeks!

Have you read any good books lately? Any bad ones? Done any traveling? Watched any thrilling movies? I am making progress on my Christmas/Valentines/birthday books ever since I quit going to the library. Of the 18 books, I've only got 2 left to read!  Yes, two!  I did buy 3 more books earlier this month when I was ordering something on Amazon for a friend.  I've read one of those.  As I read one book, I often get suggestions for more from either the author's text or footnotes. (Thus Custer Died for Your Sins from my last post.) It's a never-ending cycle!

Maybe I can refrain from buying more books and after finishing these, I'll revisit the local library as there are several books I've made note of to get.  Can you believe only a few years ago, I would read 98% fiction? Now it seems the opposite. Why have I changed thus?

OK, enough Monday morning ramblings. Have a great week!

I'm reading The Help by Kathryn Stockett. I haven't gotten far yet, but I'm really enjoying it so far.

You can read the synopsis here:


My favorite character so far is Minny.
