I can hardly believe it! I'm caught up on my 52 books in 52 days project!

Teach Yourself Visually: Knitting
by Sharon Turner
Rating: A+



If you are interested in learning to knit, this is absolutely the best book I've seen. I loved it! It was so wonderful to be able to actually FINISH a project and in a reasonable amount of time. The pictures and instructions are so simple to follow and the book covers just about everything in knitting techniques, with several nice project patterns in the back.

These Three Remain
by Pamela Aidan
Rating: A



This is the third and final book in the Fitzwilliam Darcy, Gentleman trilogy and it wrapped the story up nicely. It left me sighing contentedly.

Homeschool Co-ops; How to Start Them, Run Them, and Not Burn Out
by Carol Topp



Excellent resource for anyone interested in starting a co-op. I've led ours for many years now and was looking for some inspiration. The book covers burn-out well, and I know it from experience. More importantly, it covers determining your goals for your co-op and offers practical advice on achieving them. The entire book is practical advice. It is a very quick read and covers everything you need to know.

Sue Patrick's Workbox System



It's a great idea, but the book is most certainly over-priced. It was an easy read, covered in a couple of hours on Sunday afternoon, and much of the reading was repetitious. I have read about the idea so much that I'm not sure I gleaned much more from the actual book. But again, it IS a great idea and I'm anxious to incorporate some of it into our school days.

Modern Montessori At Home
by Heidi Anne Spietz
Rating: D

Incredibly boring with very minor discussion on Montessori philosophy, focusing mostly on a few Montessori projects with LOTS of instructions for those few projects. It was a small book and I survived it, though I walked away without taking any inspiring notes.
