August 12th, 2016

Good afternoon, everyone! Mom has been having a bad week, so she wants to go to bed soon.
Mom and I spend a lot of time reading. Mom mostly likes nonfiction books. We mostly read books on the ipad. We’re currently reading two books. One of them is called the Gene, by Siddhartha Mukherjee. It is about the discovery of DNA and what we have been doing with it. Mom thinks it’s really interesting—but I think it’s kind of boring. But she reads books with me that she thinks are boring, so it’s all even in the end! What are you all reading? We’d love recommendations! We’re also interested in reading books in Dutch!
Since a post isn’t the same without a picture, here is a picture of Oliver. He has been helping me keep Mom’s mood up!

I hope you’re all having a good day! Talk to you later!

  1. We're reading "The Man From St Petersburg" by Ken Follett. It's a thriller story set in London just before the start of WW1 and involves Russian anarchists, British aristocracy and the Royal Family...... it's a good story so far!!

  2. Hi Marlowe, That book sounds kind of interesting. We've been a bit too busy with visitors to read much this summer. Hopefully that will change in September! One book we did read was "Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking" by Susan Cain. Beary appropriate for Stuffies who are the strong & silent type!
