WWW Wednesday & Teaser Tuesdays & More

I'm reading my way through "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett. This weekend was birthday party for my neice, and tax weekend, so we've been really busy. Then on Monday, I put together six freezer meals for the family to enjoy. These meals were pretty "vegetable intense" so it took a lot of preparation (peeling and chopping sweet potatoes, chopping bell peppers, and the like). It took one and a half hours to prepare and put the meals together. Now all I have to do is clean the kitchen. So, here I am writing a post! HA!

Meanwhile, I've been digging through YouTube, so I thought I'd share some cool bookish videos I found.

The Joy of Books - An awesome video that had to take a lot of time! Also watch their other video, Organizing the Bookcase (and watch the other items on the side table).

A to Z of Recommended Reading - in case you can't think of something to read...

My Bookshelf - It's more epic than you think - Cute little video for the music alone.

The Keys to Life by Will Smith - possibly a teeny bit simplified, but good info for kids

And you cannot afford to miss Christopher Walken reading Where the Wild Things Are - Classic!

Even though it's Wednesday, here's my entry into "Teaser Tuesday" from Should Be Reading:

"I won't let him throw me away again. It's already happened too many times, with him, with my friends." from pg 417, "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett.

Finally, here are my answers to WWW Wednesdays from Should Be Reading:

1. What are you currently reading? "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett.



2. What did you recently finish reading? "Gilead" by Marilynne Robinson.

3. What do you think you'll read next? Wow, great question! I have lots of books waiting for me. Maybe "Water for Elephants" by Sara Gruen, "The Story of Edgar Sawtelle" by David Wroblewski, or "Spoken from the Heart" by Laura Bush.  I recently read "Decision Points" by George W. Bush and enjoyed it. What should I read???

Enjoy your day and your current book!

  1. I saw the movie of "The Help" but haven't read the book. Since that I've been striving to read the books before seeing the movie.

    I'd go for either Laura Bush for "Elephants" next :)

    2. I decided to read the book first since it's almost always better than the movie! Thanks for the input!

  3. I enjoyed reading The Help, but haven't seen the movie yet. Someone gave me Gilead last year, but I haven't read it yet. I put it on one of my reading challenges for this year, so hopefully I'll get it read soon! My WWW:
