A Book and a Warm Bed

It makes my heart happy to see Mr. Luke enjoying reading.  He has always loved books and by the looks of his overflowing bookshelf (almost all purchased at garage sales), I would say, he has a pretty large collection.  It is not always easy to find interesting books for 10 year old boys, but Luke has found a great series called Conspiracy 365 by Usborne Books.

These books are action packed and filled with mind grabbing information.  There are 13 books in the series including one for each month of the year and one called Revenge.  This is what the Usborne website says about the books….

On New Year’s Eve, Cal is chased down the street by a staggering, sick man with a deadly warning…

“They killed your father. They’ll kill you. You must survive the next 365 days.”

Hurled into a life on the run the 15-year-old fugitive is isolated and alone. Hunted by the law and ruthless criminals, Cal must somehow uncover the truth about his father’s mysterious death and a history-changing secret. Who can he turn to, who can he trust, when the whole world seems to want him dead?

The clock is ticking. Any second could be his last.

Callum Ormond has been warned.
He has 365 days.
The countdown has begun…
12 books. 12 months.

Sounds suspenseful, doesn’t it?   Anyway, here is a pic of Luke from last night while curled up in my bed reading his book.

One more thing…since I am thrifty and have a hard time stomaching buying a book that will only get read once (most likely) and then sit on a shelf, we have reserved the next books in the series at the library and can hopefully keep up with the series that way.  We love our local library and frequent it quite often.  Now you know where we will be spending a lot of our summer!
