Recent Reader Recs

Happy Friday, my friends!

Just a quick post this morning ... I wanted to share a few links with you all, some recent recommendations that are really neat!

Jen mentioned The Butterfly Project sponsored by the Holocaust Museum of Houston. And it's a very meaningful concept ~ they are collecting handmade butterfly crafts through December 2012. They have 900,000 so far, but their goal is 1.5 million, to represent the number of children who perished in the Holocaust. The crafts can be dropped off or mailed, and all will be on display at the museum in 2014.

• Van linked me to a free vintage (1906!) nature diary pdf at Homeschool Freebie of the Day. Lovely resource - great site!

• Amy pointed me to this article on book suggestions for DA fans: Three Downton Abbey Readarounds, Including a New Fay Weldon Novel. (The book by Fay Weldon is actually being published next week, not January 2013 as the article states. It looks sooo good.)

• And my mum recommended a show to me: the BBC's Twenty Twelve, a comedy centered around the 2012 London Olympics. It stars Hugh Bonneville (aka Lord Grantham!) and she and my dad are enjoying it very much. I believe they watch it on Comcast "On Demand."

So that's it for now! Do you have any recs to make? Books, shows, websites, etc?

Please drop me a note if you do!


And have a great day ...
