It’s Tuesday and time for a slice. More slices can be found at Two Writing Teachers.
Back in January, I set a goal to read fifty books this year. Last year I logged thirty-one books on Goodreads. Sometimes logging what I have read is a challenge.
But this year, I have been more consistent. I checked in with Goodreads and I’ve logged forty books to date. I don’t log the titles I read to students at school.
One thing, I have changed is reading between 9:00 PM and 10:00 PM most evenings. This seems to be the best time for me to read. This may seem crazy but if I read during the day on a Saturday, I feel like it’s luxury.
Some of my favorite reads this summer were WE WERE LIARS by E. Lockhart. Gripping and with a twist I didn’t see coming. I love when books do that. I also read BETWEEN THE WORLD AND ME by Ta-Nehisi Coates. If you haven’t read it yet, put it on your TBR list. It’s my book selection for book club this year.
Once again its CYBILS time. That means we’re looking for panelists and judges. To find out the information and apply, go to the CYBILS website. I am always looking for people to serve on the poetry committee. So especially if you participate in Poetry Friday, please consider applying. OR even if you don’t but you love poetry, please consider applying. If you have any questions feel free to contact me.
