The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg
I randomly came across this at the library a while back. The audio version, which was terrific. I thought it might help me pull my self together! Do I look pulled together yet?? This book could change your life (my life?). I think. Also, even if it doesn't it's fascinating!
Lizzie Bright and the Buckminster Boy by Gary Schmidt
2004. Newbery Honor. Printz Honor.
I don't know why I had never read this before. The kids and I finished it last night. The ending was a little rough. I think my just turned 8 year old may have been a little young. Maybe. This is a book that I think will stick with me for a long long time.
