Currently Reading:

 Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz

Currently Listening:

Also posted last week:

Frita Batidos - a favorite food destination in Ann Arbor


  1. I've requested Relish from the public library; not what my students need, but looks like fun!

  2. I want to read the Aristotle book-heard it's very good. Just requested Ellington from my library! Thanks for all!

  3. Great titles you have here. Ellington looks like something I'd love. I read and reviewed "All that Jazz" a picture book biography of Ellington created by the Pinkneys - might be a good companion book with this one you have.

  4. Ellington sounds just wonderful - the cover alone is calling out to me!

  5. Several titles on my TBR already . . . and now off to check out RELISH!
