I’m going to do it! Les Mis will be coming up very soon. If anyone would like to read it along with me that would be fantastic. No schedules or check-ins. Just knowing that someone out there is tackling it at the same time would make my heart happy. Interested? 

 Les Misérables by Victor Hugo
Bookish/Bloggish Business:
Bout of Books! I didn’t participate as much as I had hoped to but I did read more than usual so I’m happy.
It’s been a fun/busy week at home. We’re gearing up for a new school year, yay! My son is off to his sophomore year of high school. I don’t homeschool him. He tried it for one year but It wasn’t his thing. (No cute girls!)  So, it’s just my daughter and I at home. She’ll be starting 8th grade. 
Back before I was a homeschooling mom this was my favorite time of year. I would skip around singing this. No lie. But now that I’m thinking about it, it’s still my favorite. I love buying new clothes and new supplies. I like seeing what classes my son has picked and I love picking out curriculum and making plans for my daughter. I’m looking forward to a good year. 
I hope you guys and gals had a great week. What are you up to? Tell me about it!

  1. I read Les Miserables time ago and I enjoyed the story very much. The political parts were less gripping though, but in the end it is worth the time you spend with it.Hope you and your childre have a wonderful new academic year!

  2. I'm done with school, no kids, my husband is now ABD on his doctorate (so no more classes!) so I can't really connect with the \”yay new school year!\” part, but… I am SUPER HAPPY to have concert season start back up!! I missed my orchestras and rehearsals with everybody. And more stuff happening to review for my performing arts online journal I write for. Whoo! I might be the only person bored to death by summer.
