Monday morning post...

I have plans on Wednesday morning to have a tea party with the little girl who lives next door, so I decided to write a blog entry this morning as my weekly posting.  Unfortunately I haven't read much since I last posted, so I have little to blog about.  I think this will be a short entry!

I finished Lemony Snicket's The Bad Beginning, and I can see how it would become addictive to children.  Even as I was getting near the end of this first volume, I really wanted to know how they managed to get out of their predicament.  I have been told that the first 6 or so are fairly formulaic, but that they change after that and become less predictable and more interesting once again.  So if there are any fans of "A Series of Unfortunate Events" out there who are becoming discouraged by the "sameness" of the first few books, be patient and stick with them - you won't be disappointed if you continue.

I usually have no problem coming up with topics to write about when it comes to books and reading, but I'm completely stuck right now.  And my book club selection is sitting on the coffee table reminding me that I'm not even half-way through the book, and the meeting is on Friday.  I'm feeling some pressure right now from this inanimate, yet powerful, object.  So I better go and get reading.

Bye for now!

    I love children's books. I must admit,though, that I gave up reading the Lemony Snicket books in the middle of the series.
