The independent learnings of a new teacher in love with books.
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
What are you reading now & why are you reading it?
I'm currently reading Wonder Boys by Michael Chabon just for fun because I love the movie with Michael Douglas and I have heard Chabon's name before but never read one of his books. I'm about 2/3 of the way through and am enjoying it. The plot is finely tuned and his use of language is richly intellectual, but not at all dry--in fact, it's incredibly funny. I'm looking forward to finishing it off this weekend & penning a review :)
