It’s Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journeys. It is a great way to recap what you read and/or reviewed the previous week and to plan out your reading and reviews for the upcoming week. It’s also a great chance to see what others are reading right now…who knows, you might discover that next “must read” book!
Be sure to stop by Teach Mentor Texts for a list of participating bloggers and even more great reading ideas from Jen and Kellee.
In the absence of human relationships I formed bonds with paper characters. I lived love and loss through stories threaded in history; I experienced adolescence by association. My world is one interwoven web of words, stringing limb to limb, bone to sinew, thoughts and images all together. I am a being comprised of letters, a character created by sentences, a figment of imagination formed through fiction.
Books I’m reading:
Bomb: The Race to Build–And Steal–The World’s Most Dangerous Weapon by Steve Sheinkin–I never thought I would enjoy listening to a nonfiction book as much as I do this one. Reading it in print would be just as pleasurable. I’ve already passed the library copy onto our AP World History teacher, and I have two more teachers in line to read it. I’m excited to hear their reactions.
In Darkness by Nick Lake. I have to digest this one in small doses. It is just like it sounds, dark.
Books to read:
Hopefully, Unravel Me, will show up on my library door step. And, poor Anna Dressed in Blood is still sitting on my bedside table. This week is a busy week as the Boy is turning 2, and we have a wonderful Winnie the Pooh party planned for Saturday.
I read so many wonderful blogs each week from colleagues, librarians, and book-lovers that I want to start adding a blog-of-the-week for #IMWAYR.
How often do you hear from students and colleagues, “I don’t have time to read?” Jennifer over at Empathic Teacher has a response to that! Check out her blogpost reflecting on all the creative ways she finds time to include reading in her busy day
