Books we’ve been reading lately
Ok, these are not necessarily all recommendations… This is the spot in the blog where I get to share books we are reading. Instead of writing a book review about every great book (that’s impossible!) I get to share a little bit about some good ones here. I can not always say whether I love them or not until I’m done with them. So, if there is nothing written beside a book, it probably means that we didn’t finish it yet.
Ok, this is a kids picture book, but it is soooo cute! When a boy reaches into his desk to grab his crayons, he finds a pile of letters instead. They are letters from his crayons explaining why they quit…so creative and super fun!
I’ve got to be honest, this was not my favorite book. It’s a Middle school age novel full of mystery. To me it seemed dark and a little too creepy. Then why am I sharing it? Well, because my 10 year-old loved it. She thought it was fantastic; loved the mystery, the darkness of it…ah well, we are all different.
Here’s another middle school novel, but this one I love! It’s written in free verse so it is a quick read, but don’t let that fool you. The topic (a young girl and her family flee from Vietnam during the war) is deep and the free verse allows you to be there, feeling what it was like and empathizing with refugees everywhere. Truly, a great book.

Money Saving Sites
Well, this one is actually a money making site. I put off using this website for a very long time. I thought it was just another gimmick that would take more time and earn me a penny or two. I was wrong! When I finally did decide to try it, I was so mad at myself for not trying it sooner! It is so simple. Basically, it adds an extra click to whatever shopping you are doing online and you automatically earn extra money for whatever you want! So, say you are going to purchase an item on your favorite website. All you have to do is go to the ebates website (once you are signed up), click on the link for your favorite webite, and wahla! When you go and purchase your item (or items), you will earn a percentage of that purchase. Almost like a commission! Like I said, I wish I had tried it earlier. This year, I am saving up my ebates money to use for Christmas presents! Hopefully it will be a “free” Christmas!
