Kidlit 13: Kate's Book

Blogathon 2006

(Amazon had no picture of this one.)

Kate's Book is a novel about a girl and her family on the Oregon Trail in the 1840s. I read lots of books about that as a kid, but this one stands out in my mind, and not just because the heroine has my name. It's very realistic - people die, families are torn apart. But it's very engaging, and not depressing. There's a sequel, too, called Kate's House, which is almost as good.

How did the bat problem go with your parents? Did they get rid of the thing yet?

Alrighty - past the halfway mark, it's all downhill from here!

And the cavalry will soon be on its way with iced coffee!

What are your thoughts on audiobooks and e-books and will they have a place in the libary of the future? I'm assuming they aren't there yet. I have to admit to have been so dependant on Amazon and BooksFree that I haven't been in a library in a very long time.
