Mine is a family of readers (including, at long last, Miss H) from our parents to our siblings to our children. I may be the only book blogger in the bunch, but I'm not the only person who makes reading plans for the year. I thought I'd share what other members of my family will be reading in the next few months.
Mini-him's also working on putting together a sci-fi/fantasy book club at the university. I'm not saying it's the only thing that attracted him to his new girlfriend but it certainly didn't hurt that she's also a fan of sci-fi and fantasy books.
The Big Guy just finished The Princess Bride. He's been reading up a storm lately, but mostly out of my piles of books as well as books I've gotten for him to review (he's got three guest reviews coming up in the next few weeks) but what he'll read next is a mystery. He is the one person in the family that doesn't like to think ahead about what he'll be reading, preferring to read as the mood strikes him. He pondered reading Les Miserables with me...until I told him how many pages it is.
Some time ago, I started a feature called "Mama Shepp's Family Recommends." This year I'm hoping to get that started up again soon so I can pass along recommendations from my aunt and uncle in Rhode Island, The Big Guy's brother and his wife, and my siblings. I'm looking forward to hearing more about what they're reading and enjoying. I hope you'll enjoy it as well.
