It turns out summer school is kind of awesome. The teachers (at least mine) are super nice and like impressed with you for taking summer classes, so they will bend over backwards to pack in all the material. The thing I hadn't realized was that there would be kids from other schools at summer school. They transfer their credits to their school. It totally hadn't occurred to me that people might do this. It's practically over, but I'm definitely going to take classes next summer.

I get like a week off between when summer school ends and the fall semester starts, but then right after school starts there's time off for Labor Day. I don't really want to do anything with that week off, even though it feels like I should. Alex has this summer reading list she has to do, but she finished it before the end of July so now she's decided to re-read her books just in case. Except now everyone else has started reading them and she's having a hard time finding them. She keeps bitching about how ridiculous it is that she has to go to different libraries to get them.

I'd love to hear what's on her list. My summer reading list and my daughters' had many books in common.

The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak
Lives of a Cell, by Lewis Thomas
Genome, by Matt Ridley

That might be it? Those are the only ones I found on the desk.

Wow. Very interesting. I know I would like The Book Thief.

Did she like them?
