#IMWAYR Dec. 8
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.
I just finished the Beyonders World Without Heroes audio. Will be starting a "grown up" Douglas Preston/Lincoln Child Pendergast audio adventure next. Looking forward to Blue Labyrinth.
For the second or third time I have Making Thinking Visible checked out. And again ... I love the ideas. I just have a hard time with the e-format for this one and translating reading into practice. I should just buy it. I have several other PD books I bought and started and haven't ever finished already. Is that bad?
I'm in the middle of Red Rising. And The Infinite Sea. It's been too long since I read The 5th Wave so I'm a little lost.
I must admit ... during my month off of posting any reading (MsOReadsBooks! Really. She does. This year is not the norm) I did share The Book With No Pictures with some kids. They liked it a lot more than I did so that's worth something.
Oh! And the picture book Ivan. What I would give for a terrible late 80s hair photo of myself at the B&I visiting Ivan. I never got to go see him at the Atlanta zoo. I loved sharing that one with the kids!
And I read Popular: Vintage Wisdom for a Modern Geek. I liked that one ... can't wait to hear more from the young author. I actually didn't care for Tana French's The Secret Place. I've enjoyed all her others but not this one.
