For those of you who are looking forward to a quiet, leisurely Easter weekend filled with some great reads:

Barrett's love of the classics shines through in KING OF ITHAKA.  As I read this, I kept thinking how great it would have been to have this as supplemental reading in my Latin and humanities courses in high school.  Great adventure novel. 

Hurwitz's MG novel THE SUMMER I SAVED THE WORLD...IN 65 DAYS released earlier this month; I was lucky enough to get my hands on an ARC some time ago.  In this era of the "princessification" of young girls, it's refreshing to see a girl more interested in what she does than how she looks.  A lovely contemporary read.
