As we were finishing our trip, we were driving in the rain while I was trying to get the book finished.
Over the years, we have read many books in the car, on the road or in the park. We remember "Hawaii" by James Michener and "East of Eden" by John Steinbeck, both being great 'park' books.
We often talk about books and they tell me what they are reading. Sometimes I am able to get a copy and read the book so that we can discuss it. "The Hunger Games" was discussed often.
Hunter, at 15, convinced me to read "A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier". Grim!
We chatted about books on their recent sleepover.
