what to read

To see what I and my family are reading, go here http://celestiashumway.com/ You will find lots of recommendations for picture books for your kids, family read alouds, and books for you to read to nourish your mommy brain. This is my old blog where I started blogging in 2008. I have decided to dedicate it strictly to books. It will also be a great record of the books we read! I would also love to be your friend on http://goodreads.com where I have more reviews of books than on the old blog.

For studying the scriptures I sometimes use the web site http://scriptures.byu.edu. It is a database of all the commentaries that LDS Church leaders have made about any scripture. It’s so cool!

I also love my friend Shauna Bird Dunn’s book loving blog here http://bookdivabooks.blogspot.com/
