Reading Aloud - or rather, Listening Aloud - December 11

This is part 1 of the Listening Aloud Edition.  We've been traveling, so I have read almost nothing out loud, but we did a lot of audiobook listening.  And no photo.

So what have we been reading aloud this past week?

Made in Heaven by Ray Comfort and Jeffrey Seto.  We are continuing to (allegedly) read a two-page spread daily.  Um, or not.  We only did one this week.  This book is great.

The American Patriot's Almanac by William Bennett.  We're reading from this one daily too. Supposedly.  We didn't actually open this at all this week, but I'm leaving it here to remind me to do it.

Anne's House of Dreams by L. M. Montgomery.  We listened to about 3/4 of this book. It was hard to drive while listening to the part about Anne's first baby.  The kids weren't hounding me to be sure to put the next one on hold, but I expect that is mostly because we aren't home.

Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens, Focus on the Family Radio Theater.  I reviewed this one, but for here I'll say it was totally fabulous and I'm glad we had the opportunity.

Goals for next week: I don't plan to do a lot of reading aloud.  We'll be listening to some things when we head home.  A Christmas Carol for one, but I don't remember what else.  When we get home, we have a lot of Christmas stories planned for the next week, or maybe two.

Rules for this linkup - if you are blogging about things you are reading aloud to your children, or just blogging about reading aloud in general, feel free to link up.  Audiobooks count too.  I would very much appreciate if you link back to this post.  I'll leave the linky open through Monday at midnight.

How about you?
