Her Dad Thinks She'll Play Sports

I know I shouldn't teach her to play ball in the house, but come on. Those laughs are worth anything.

June Books

So this post is more for my own personal benefit than anything else. I still want to keep track of the books I'm reading so I can go back and review them at the end of the year. Now my inner book-girl nerd is coming out for the world to see. I'm okay with it.

I thought this was an excellent book. I thought maybe I wouldn't like it as much because it is about the invention of the airplane, and as much as I think airplanes are cool and all, I get bored reading mechanically-type stuff. But this book was never boring. The Wright Brothers have always been kind of enigmatic to me. After reading this I have a lot of respect for them. I would definitely recommend this one.

So I read this book in a couple hours this past weekend. It's about what you would expect for a middle grade novel. I read Surviving the Applewhites as a kid and loved it, so when I heard there was another one, I always was kind of on the lookout to read it. I was a little disappointed. Again, not sure if the first one was way before or if my response just has to do with the fact that I'm 15 years older and I have a degree in English now. Deep down inside, I'm still very satisfied I read it though. I had to see how the Applewhites were getting on these days.
