I like big books, especially when they come in sets of 5, or 10, or more.

When you‘re 2 days from moving sand 3 days from vacation your book mark becomes whatever you can find still lying around. 😏

Dinosaurs Before Dark | Mary Pope Osborne

Started reading this with my little guy. Trying to instill a love of reading into him at a young age. He reads a chapter then I read a chapter. He is really getting good and only needs help with a few words per page.

Traci1 I loved reading those with my older kiddos. We invested in all of them up to like the 45th book. I hung onto the set for some reason (they're now 20 and almost 16), and then we had a surprise come along 3 years ago. I'm so glad I kept them. Can't wait to start them with my little dude. 2y
Fantasyfan @Traci1 Wow! We don‘t have that many of them but we have quite a few. He struggled to choose between Dino‘s and dolphins so I‘m guessing that will be next. I love the variety that comes with this series. So many different topics. 2y
Traci1 @Fantasyfan I bought a lot of them used for like 50 cents each. I think my husband thought I was crazy. We homeschooled, though, and I used them for lessons too, so it was a good investment. Even better now that we have a 3rd to share them with. 2y
robinb My kids adored this series...zoomed through them. Good memories! 😊 2y

As Bright as Heaven | Susan Meissner

Pickpick

This is a raw look at human emotions and how we do the best we can with what life hands us. Through WWI, the outbreak of the Spanish Flu in Philadelphia, the death of people they love, and living with the consequences of their decisions, one family makes their way in life. They face challenges and make choices based on their own limited experiences of life, as they try to keep going and deal with the ups and downs of everyday life, as we all do.

🎶This is the book that never ends. It just goes on and on my friend🎶. On a positive note, I got an email from book outlet a few days ago and may have used my entire Christmas check from my mother to order new books. May have. I‘ll never admit to it though and I know you all won‘t tell.

ReadingSusan I sent my mom the stack of books I got with the gift card she gave me and she was like oh great how much is left on her gift card. Me um negative 50 🤣🤣🤣 She didn‘t understand why books cost so much 🤣 (edited) 2y
Fantasyfan @ReadingSusan I think I got a good deal. $100 somedollars worth and I paid just under $60. It will be a large box. Good thing shipping was free😏 2y
Melissa_J I put in an order from Book Outlet yesterday. 13 books. My husband just shook his head, especially since I had just received several Chapters gift cards for Christmas. I can‘t help myself when it comes to major book sales 🤷🏻‍♀️ (edited) 2y

Fantasyfan I don‘t order from book outlet that often, they just had a really good sale. I prefer thrift books. Cheaper and if you order at least $10 shipping is free. It‘s older books though which is great because that‘s mainly what I like. 2y

I have really enjoyed this series so far. It has some romance aspects and is a little cheesy at times, but it has been a great pallet cleanser between some other more serious reads. I also love the predictable unpredictability if it. You can always tell when something is going to happen, just not quite sure what. A little romance, a little magic, with some Petra gal thrown in. Bring on book 3!

OMG will this book ever end? I know it has taken me a long time to get through it, but I have enjoyed it and I will miss the characters when it is over. Good thing there are a few more books in the series. And apparently another series as well.
