#IMWAYR March 16
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.
EEEK! It's been a month! Oops. My Spring Break is over. The first three days were super cold (for here) and rainy. Blah. Oh, well. There are two three day weekends in April. And bookfair is 90% completed. Still have paperwork but the hardest parts are done! The last couple years we've come back from SB to do that. This year? We got it done first. ;)
So ... because of the month this will be a long list. I think I shall break up and post some actual reviews here over the next week or two. The pics always link to the top of my Goodreads list. There were some great ones, some good ones, and some OK but not the best ever ones. I have a hard time abandoning books. I keep hoping they will get better. And they do, sometimes. The cost is dealing with some that don't.
2000th GR book posted was Devil in the White City.
Oh! And I haven't even put a couple in there. Think a British Greg Heffley. You'll hear more about him in a bit.
On deck coming up ...
I really must finish some of these. Not finishing them makes it seem like I didn't like them which is not necessarily true. I just got distracted by "I must finish some of my paperbacks so that I can donate them to the district PTA Used Book Sale" over spring break. I am crossing my fingers that some new books get delivered soon. Due to many shenanigans (both admin and my own) budgets didn't get opened up as early as usual so I am behind. All the orders are in ... but only two of them have been delivered. I feel very behind in picture books! It is so inconvenient to go to my public library and I just don't get nearly as many electronic ARCs for them.
