It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?
October 29, 2012 35 Comments
“It’s Monday! What are you reading?” is a weekly event hosted by Sheila at Bookjourney to share with others what we’ve read the past week and planning to read next.
This weekend was the start of the Literary Giveaway Blog Hop. I’m giving away 4 books (3 world-wide) and there are links to 40+ other blogs giving away a book. So check it out and win a book! The blog hop runs until (and including) Wednesday.
My 13 year old son is spending a week in Denmark with school. He’s taking bilingual education, where half of his subjects are in Dutch and half in English. As part of the bilingual program they go abroad every year. Not only to learn better English, but also to learn about different countries and to become an international person! He’s staying with the family of a boy of his own age, who will visit us next spring. Exciting for our son ánd for us. One fewer person makes our family so much quieter. My older son enjoys the sole attention of his parents.
