I did not get a chance to update my book challenge yet this week. I finished The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett.
I must say, I really love this story. It's, of course, a great growing story full of morals and directives about how to be a good person, how to help children be good people and the loveliness and lessons we can learn from gardening. LOVE IT!
It makes me want even more to start my own greenhouse. It's a pet idea that I've had floating around the back of my mind for a few years.
Anyways - back to the book. I finished it Tuesday and began reading Little Women for the third time. It's another book I love. Alcott has such interestingly eternal thoughts. Plus, it is hard to pull me away from the transcendentalists (but not as difficult as it is pulling them away from Unitarian thought... hahaha ha ha.... no one gets my literary joke or finds it funny.
Thus, I have completed the twelfth book on my journey to tri-deca-dom. Or something like that.
12/30 books completed.
