Welcome friends! I have started this entry in the global technosphere because I have been in love with books since the age of 2. Among the busy business of being a new teacher, this is my outlet for sharing thoughts on a love of reading a wide variety of books. My inspiration can be summed up with a yearbook quote from a teacher written when I was 8: "To the only girl at recess I see reading a book. Good for you!"
My blog title is quoted from a classmate who asked me this once. Believe it or not, I've also heard it as a teacher :D

It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

A weekly meme hosted by Sheila @ Book Journey.

Sorry this is a bit late.  I had a bit of a rough weekend health-wise but am doing fine now & need to catch up on everyone's posts, as well as get some of my own going.

I'm planning to do an Oscar-themed post this week & do a fun reading questionnaire I saw at Roof Beam Reader.  Stay tuned!

  1. little bee! :) it's good and i'm learning a lot about reminds me of the kite runner and actually Library Journal says that if you are in search of the next Kite Runner this is your answer...very good!

  2. I've never read the Updike Rabbit books but my husband has.

    The Kite Runner was amazing, and I have heard great things about Middlesex but haven't gotten to it myself yet.

    Enjoy your books this week!


  3. Yay for The Kite Runner! Once you finish it, "A Thousand Splendid Suns" is also great! Plus you have "Middlesex" ahead of you--what a richly textured and beautiful book, in a totally quirky and unusual way.

  4. Wow - those are some good ones! Hope you enjoyed!

    PS - My husband, who never reads, loved Rabbit, Run, so go figure.

  5. Ooh Middlesex, I hope you like it, I loved it :)
