Long time no hear!

With the new school year storming in, the boys found themselves overwhelmed with obligations. Several of the kids are taking high school classes in middle school, and the high school boys have been taking college classes in high school.

Unfortunately,there have been several other circumstances that have made it near impossible to keep up with our postings. We had to say good-bye to a very dear friend in October after she lost her battle with cancer.

While the boys have not had the time to sit down and write reviews worthy of posting, they do have a list of great reads:

Love {and other uses for duct tape} by Carrie Jones
"Carrie didn't let me down!"

Hit the Road, Manny by Christian Birch
"OMG! Funny!"

The Compound by S.A. Bodeen
"This had me on the edge of my seat."

The Rule of Won by Stefan Petrucha
"Definitely thought provoking."

Shift by Jennifer Bradbury
"Intriguing, must read."

The Adventurous Deeds of Deadwood Jones by Helen Hemphill
"An adventure well worth the read!"

Hopefully we can pick up the pace after the new year. We are looking into doing vlog's or podcasts. Hoping they might work out better for the boys.

Thanks to everyone who hung in there and supported the boys in their efforts.

I am continually on the lookout for boys who like to read and have time to send in reviews. If you know of any please send them my way!

Cool. I had been wondering what had happened. I would suggest some other boys I know who like to read, but seeing as Steven hasn't been doing *anything* I would probably just jinx you. Sorry.

Love {and other uses for duct tape} is one of those amazingly cool books that's just funny, through and through. I really liked it when I read it.
