It's Monday, What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey, that is guaranteed to add to your reading list.
Whew, I have been AWOL all week long! It was a rough week at school, I have been working on four writing projects diligently for my classes.
I also did a big promotion at work this week. Instead of the blind date with a book, I wrapped the books up and promoted not judging a book by its cover. The kids loved it!!!! I ended up having to wrap hundreds of books (thank god for great volunteers to help!) but the kids enjoyed it. I told them to just try it, even if they didn't like it, they at least tried something new. Many of the students came back and told me they had loved their "mystery" book, as they called it.
When they returned the books, if they tried to read it even just a little, I had them write their name on a heart, and tape it to the window. It looks really cute.
Read Last Week:
I am sorry to say I only read half of a book! I actually checked out a blind date book from my library, thinking if the kids were doing it, then I could too. I ended up with a really good one!
Mennonite in a Little Black Dress by Rhoda Janzen: I am loving this book!
Reading this Week:
My assignments aren't as intensive this week, so I should be able to read a little more. I also have tomorrow off, so bonus! I have a lot to choose from right now, and I don't know which I will read!! If there is one on my list here you really enjoyed, let me know! I am leaning towards reading The Winter People.
