It's (almost) 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 read like crazy this week. I doubt much of it could be called careful reading. I'm working on slowing down but there are just so many books in the world I want to read!
Mix of oldies and new ones, picture books, middle grade, YA, and "grown up." That's what #summerreading #bookaday is all about! Most of the "grown up" ones were actually disappointing. Like authors that I've really enjoyed in the past? So so now. The odd one out was the Creativity one. I never read stuff like that but found it pretty fascinating, especially as most of it could be viewed from an education perspective. Anyway, you can click on the pics to go to my "read" shelf for a little more info. And the best ones I will repost/review more in depth here as release dates get closer. Like Piper Green. You'll hear about her again because she is a must get for early chapter book readers. And Stick and Stone is a good one for talking about building a positive classroom community.
And starting Tuesday a revival of what is still a very popular pinned series ... Apps for Teacher Librarians. Finally!
Happy Father's Day. I have the best Dad. He is the one that gave me my love of books. Due to an eye disease it's really hard for him to read but he still does. He's a great fan of audiobooks!
