We also resisted the temptation to buy a new TV today. We're in the market for one, given the fact that one of the kids let fly a wooden sword and "done in" our most recent model. We aren't quite there on the budget yet, though, so we'll wait a bit longer. It's "no-screen" month (middle of May to middle of June) for the boys in any case, so we'll manage all right I suspect.
In other news, I'm having some fun wandering from book to book without a specific reading purpose at the moment. I do have some summer goals, and I'll get to those books soon enough, but I'm just kinda reading whatever strikes my fancy. So, I've read all or part of:
Beyond the Hundredth Meridian (Stegner)
The Indispensable Calvin and Hobbes (Watterston)
Children of the Mind (Card)
My Life in France (Child)
Half-Blood Prince (Rowling)
The Folk of the Fringe (Card)
The Gathering of Zion (Stegner)
The Professor's House (Cather)
What's on your summer reading list?
