Tonight I will share a few of the recent books that I have read.
I checked this book out for two reasons. One reason is that some of my Amish ancestors were victims of a raid by the Delaware tribe at the Northkill Creek Amish settlement in 1757. The second reason is that about 40 years later members of the same tribe left a baby with my 5th Great Grandparents. She was raised among the Amish and was my 4th Great Grandmother.
I wanted to know more about the Algonquians as the Delaware or Leni Lenape are part of this larger grouping of Native Americans.
I found this book at the library book sale. I have always enjoyed the writing of David McCullough, and when I saw The Wright Brothers on the shelf it just had to go home with me. It quickly made it to the top of my to-read pile and I really enjoyed this biography.
The title was what caught my eye, but when I saw that it was about twins that had a secret language I decided to check it out.
This was an interesting book, and it was interesting to follow the twist and turns of the plot.
I really enjoyed reading the Trixie Belden mysteries when I was a kid. Most of the books that I have on my shelves are from the Whitman Deluxe Editions of which there were 15. I am going to restrict my challenge to just these first 15 titles.
The original author of the series was Julie Campbell and Trixie Belden and the Secret of the Mansion was the first title. I am currently reading the third book in the series.
I also found this book at the library book sale. It brought back some good memories so I decided that I needed to take it home and read the story again.
Back to reading,
