Thanks, Tiffany! Our whole family is having a great time with the reading project.

I'm joining this conversation rather late, but if you're still reading: the Far-Distant Oxus was my favorite childhood book and I wanted so badly to read it aloud to my children. Alas, I couldn't remember the title - only that it had Ox or Oxen in it - so I had to search for ten years before I finally entered a magical combination of clues into google, using images this last time, and boom! There it was right in the middle of the page (and Oxus, not Oxen! No wonder I couldn't find it). I just finished reading it today to my son and it was everything I remembered; just wonderful, inspiring and a glimpse into the mind of children. Thank you for promoting this lovely book, and the others, too, which I will continue to try to find for under $100! And please, if you haven't already, read Ann Bronte's lovely novel Agnes Grey. You will enjoy it (didn't see it on your list). Not nearly as dramatic as her sisters' books but a very good read just the same.

Hello, MarY. Thank you for your comments. I'm so glad you found the book at last! (I had a similar search for the picture book _The Maggie B_ by Irene Haas. I went through the whole picture book shelves at the library until I found it!) I will definitely search for Agnes Grey.

My primary camera is a Canon EOS Digital Rebel T5 with a Sigma DC 18-200mm lens (1:3.5-6.3) or Canon EFS 18-55mm lens. On occasion I also use my iPhone 6. For crisper images (when I'm not in a hurry to grab the shot), I use a Dolica Proline B100 tripod. I often tweak my images using Adobe Photoshop Elements 8.
