#IMWAYR (almost, anyway) and July Currently

Didn't get a lot of reading done last week because of ISTE. Which was awesome ... will be spreading out posts as I think things through. Next up is (some) Chrome stuff on Tuesday. I'm hoping they'll have the video posted by then so I can link up the recording.

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 the previous week and to plan out your reading for the upcoming week. It's also a great chance to see what others are reading.

Our Kid Lit to YA version is hosted by Teach Mentor Texts.
GREAT IDEA! Check out all of the What Are You Reading? participants for title ideas.

The poetry book was definitely my favorite of the four I finished last week.

I am almost done with House of Secrets. May even finish it today. And 3 Below will time out (it's an e-audiobook) on Tuesday so I need to get listening! How embarrassing that I am still reading Notice and Note. Taking too long. I'd like to say it's because I'm paying such attention but ... that would not be true. It is really good! I just get sidetracked. :/

Up next? Beta is due to the public library on Tuesday. Looks like a quick read. Then either Sophia's War, The Reluctant Assassin, or The Monster. I know my first e-arc to get to will be the fourth book in the Shadows series (Jacqueline West).

Linking up with Farley. It rained SO HARD this morning. Figures. We'd start building a house and a long drought would ... well, I don't think we can say it's over but egads, buckets and buckets! I miss family, especially this holiday week. They are all so far away.

Now. Debating ... that last one. Try new things! I use that a lot with teachers and parents when speaking of books kids might want to read and tech tools to try.
I have about 8 more hours to decide and apply for something. They extended the deadline two weeks. It can't hurt to apply, right? But it's sort of petrifying, too. Will I take my own advice?



  1. GO FOR IT!!!

    Okay, now for the books :) Really like Notice and Note- important though I hope that independent choice fun reading still happens. As fort he novels, I want to read them all! Have the first Body Finder, but haven't read it yet...

    Happy reading this week! :)
