Stalin and Hitler this week because he was a bit of a slacker last week. This week is going much better.)
I'm reading Eric Metaxas's Bonhoeffer now, in honor of our history studies. It is a new angle on the war for me and, though I can't say it casts the mass of the German people in a sympathetic light, it is interesting, and Bonhoeffer is certainly an inspiring figure. My "walking" book now is Winter King , by Thomas Penn, which is on Henry VII. Not the most lovable man (Henry, not Mr. Penn), but the history is fun! Finally, of course, I am reading The Hobbit aloud, in honor of the upcoming movie!
And I forgot to post (or take) jack-o-lantern pictures last week, so here, a little shriveled, they are!
And, lest we forget..... Emma.
