Tuesday Tales

A weekly peek at what we're reading.
Post your peek in the comments and share your favorite books!

Anne is reading
The Messies Manual by Sandra Felton

. . . the collecting impulse is hard to control because on the surface it seems so logical.  Why not keep that yarn?  Someday you may learn to knit, and it will be wonderful to have your own supply already!  (If you can find it.)  Why not keep all prescription medicines?  Someday your child may be ill in the middle of the night and the doctor may say that only one medicine will help him.  You'll look in the cabinet and find that you have that very medicine, even if it is ten years old.  The doctor will say that it is better to have ten-year-old medicine than none at all, and you will give it to your child and he will be saved.  So, you see, it is dangerous to throw anything away.

Holly is still reading
Lindsey by Chryssa Atkinson

"I'm so sorry," I whispered again.  I really meant it.  Miss Kinney sat back in her chair and sighed.  "I'm afraid that sorry is not enough to cover it this time, Lindsey.  You will be on lunchtime cleanup duty for the next two weeks.  And, right now, you will march down to the band room and apologize to Mr. Pingler."

Oh, great.

"And Lindsey," Miss Kinney said as I turned to leave, "I also called your mother."

Lily is reading
Mr. Willowby's Christmas Tree by Robert Barry

But once the tree stood in its place,
Mr. Willowby made a terrible face.
The tree touched the ceiling, then bent like a bow.
"Oh, good heavens," he gasped.  "Something must go!"
