It's Monday! What are you reading? 9-26-16
It's Monday! What are you reading? Is a wonderful community of readers, teachers, and librarians. Hosted by Jen over at Teach Mentor Texts along with Kellee and Ricki at Unleashing Readers, participants share their reading adventures from the past week along with their reading plans for the week ahead.
My Monday posts are generally just a highlight of what I've been reading during the week so if you'd like to see all that I've been reading, follow my Goodreads page.
*Sigh* I still feel like I'm playing catch up. I'm behind on grading, behind on lesson plans, I am getting over being sick this weekend. As much as I enjoy being librarian at my school, I just haven't hit my stride yet. I know it will take some time but I am impatient I guess.
Anyway, enough of the pity party.
Last week I posted:
Interview with Rob Rufus, author of Die Young with Me
I finished reading with my ears:
The Schwa Was Here by Neal Shusterman
I reread this (listened to the audio) for a teacher book club this week.
Picture books I enjoyed last week:
Shy by Deborah Freedman
Books don't need to shout. Sometimes quietly and timidly tapping you on the shoulder is enough to make a big impact.
Dog Heaven by Cynthia Rylant
As a dog person, this book was a definite heartprint book for me. All I have to say is if dogs don't go to heaven, I don't think that can really be heaven now, can it?
American Street by Ibi Zobo
Still reading with my ears:
Endzone: The Rise, Fall, and Return of Michigan Football by John U. Bacon
