I have finally begun a book that was recommended to me by my sister and another blogging friend. I don't often read children's books, but this one is quite good so far. The title is The Mysterious Benedict Society. I downloaded a copy from a website where you can "check out" digital audiobooks and then put them on a CD or your MP3 player to listen to.
I am thoroughly enjoying this book. I was afraid it was going to be too silly at first, maybe something like The Phantom Tollbooth (although this has been one of my favorite books and one I would love to read again) or Alice in Wonderland (which I have NEVER liked, except maybe the part about the Rabbit, who is "late for a very important date"). But I quickly got into this book and I'm looking forward to tomorrow when I can hopefully listen to more. I hope to write a review on it soon.
