Education of Me Update

Here's how it's going.

What I did last week...
  1. Read Mara, Daughter of the Nile--I loved this book! I ended up reading it in three days, I just couldn't put it down. Thankfully it's a Sonlight book, so we will read it again later. I really enjoyed how Ms. McGraw wove history in with the story. I learned a fair amount about Egypt, plus I got a more personal perspective on the events. I highly reccommend this book!
  2. Read The Golden Goblet--Because I loved Mara and I had some extra time, I picked up this book. It's by the same author and also a Sonlight book. I enjoyed it as well, though I wasn't a quickly drawn into it. Even so, I still highly reccommend it and I am looking forward to sharing it with princess in several years.

What I plan on doing this week...

  1. Read Siddhartha

Good old Sonlight books! I must admit, however, I didn't like Siddhartha when I read it in high school. Of course, I may have a totally different experience with the book now. I'm in a very different place in life.
