…And a little of that…
Over the weekend I finished reading Om Shanti, Babe by Helen Limon. I passed it along to my niece – she’s an avid reader and I think she’ll get a kick out of the book. It’s is a fun trip to India, seen through the eyes of a teenager.Young readers will relate to the struggles of being a teen – relationship with parents, finding new friends, body image, trying to find a style, and trying to fit in. Older readers will appreciate the fact that we’ve all been there before.
This is a quick-paced book that takes the reader on a journey through Kerala, India, with plenty of adventures along the way. Whether that’s going to a small village, riding the train, or learning more about tradition, it’s all done with fun and plenty of delightful characters.
Is anyone else enjoying seasonal temps today? I saw lightening at about 5:30am! And by Thursday/Friday we’ll be back to bundling up to battle the cold.
And lastly, I think I may have hit the wall when it comes to watching The Bachelor–I didn’t watch last night (though it is waiting in my Hulu queue). But last week when I watched, all I kept thinking was, “I hope everyone gets a flu shot!” I mean really–that’s a lot of germs being swapped!!!
What this or that do you want to share today?
