#IMWAYR & #bookaday Rumblings

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!

Our Kid Lit to YA version is hosted by Teach Mentor Texts and Unleashing Readers.

GREAT IDEA! Check out all of the What Are You Reading? participants for title ideas.

So the last couple weeks are not going down in the epistles of history as great reading weeks for me. More of ... come home so wiped out I sit down on the couch and fall asleep. IS THAT MY AGE SHOWING? No. It's my lack of fitness commitment showing. You get more reading in when you are also exercising so you're not a slow-moving blob. #SummerGoalNumberOne Get back to the gym.

#SummerGoalNumberTwo? Of course. #BOOKADAY Next week's post will be a lot of "there are all the books I already know I want to read but of course for every book I finish I will add five more to the TBR list." Also "Wait! I forgot about this book!" I am almost as excited to finish that post as anything. Fun to concentrate on titles and making plans. Actually will still have school for a few more days and then all the post PD days. But who cares we're calling summer and #bookaday so close!

This week? Just these two.

Danger was more fun. Humming Room had more beautifully written lines. Click on the pic to go to my Goodreads shelf. Though I didn't write a whole lot more about them there there. Some, though. ;)

My age gets one year older today. OFFICIALLY and not just like every other day. It's a ... scary birthday with a 0 on the end. I took a mental health day so I'm off to celebrate. Or hide. Really I have no idea what I will do but it seemed like the thing to do.

Happy Reading!


  1. Happy Birthday! I hope you do more celebrating than hiding! Have a great week ~Megan

    1. Thanks! I did some celebrating and some relaxing. Currently working on a presentation for the district tech camp while pretending to watch basketball. I live large. ;) #bookadayiscoming

  2. I've decided age is an attitude. Embrace it. I'm officially the oldest teacher in my building next year at 48! Now if I could convince my muscles I'm still 30...
    Happy Birthday!

  3. Hello there Ms. O! Best of luck on the fitness challenge. I try to run three times a week as well, but it's a hit or miss kind of thing. :) Happy happy birthday! May it be filled with books and reading. :)
