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.
Still slower than what used to be the usual by a long shot. #bookaday is now ...12 days away? Including weekends and PD.
Stuart Gibbs has some fun ideas for stories. In this one the main character is a kid living on the first manned base on the moon. Stuff happens. Now I need to catch up on the Spy School series. Seeing as how I'm pretty sure I have an E-ARC for at least one of them. And one was on the Bluebonnet list last year.
If you're not already a SW fan the Jeffrey Brown books will not make you one. You have to know at least something about the movies. But if you are a fan? THEY ARE GENIUS.
Tomorrow is the retirement celebration for my assistant of 10 years. I know. As mentioned I've been SERIOUSLY spoiled. She is great. If I've ever been thought of as being good at what I do ... it's because of her. Knowing she could keep all the day to day stuff going while I dreamed of bigger things for the kids has been a lifesaver. Next year = great big fat unknown. How do you big things and deal with the fact there are still 187 accounts with overdue books? Some, we've discovered, are actually on the shelf. But it takes a long time to verify all of them. Can't do that and teach at the same time. Many, many, many are sitting under beds or in dad's cars. Can't call all of them and teach at the same time. Which is the priority? I would have always said teaching but we've wanted some of these checked out and not returned books already.
The fiction section is jam packed with books sitting horizontally on top of books. That drives me insane. At least it's only at the end of the year.
Also ... hope you had a great (dry and twister free ... as so many places are NOT) Memorial Day. There are so many people to which we owe a huge debt of gratitude.
