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.

I'm posting this early as tomorrow will be a long day for me & I might not get to it in the evening.  But I will make time to see your Monday posts, I promise :)  Without further adieu...

Books Read This Week (1)
Middlesex- Jeffrey Eugenides--Yes, finally finished it tonight!  I liked it & will post my review soon.

Currently Reading (3)
Oprah- Kitty Kelley--a scandalous guilty pleasure for me to zip through ;)

The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe- C.S. Lewis (Narnia series, #1)--I'm glad this one's much shorter than the last book I read.  Do you find that reading a few books in a row with a huge page count can bog you down?  I'm really looking forward to reading this for the first time.  Why not in childhood, you ask?  I wasn't really into sci-fi or fantasy, though I did love the sci-fi of Monica Hughes.

My Life- Bill Clinton--same drill...yes, I will finish it some day...maybe in 2012 :D  2013?

Next to Read
Same plan as last week's post:

Fahrenheit 451- Ray Bradbury
A is For Alibi (Kinsey Milhone series, #1) by Sue Grafton

Not sure what to read after that...probably another challenge book

Other Reviews Posted This Week
None :(   In my defense, I did post about 12 last week!

  3. Looking forward to your Middlesex review. I started reading it last year and laid it aside for whatever reason. I need incentive to pick it back up!

  4. Yay on finishing Middlesex! That is one book I know I must read someday.

  5. You read similar books to me - classics and best sellers! LOVED Lion and the Witch and the Wardrobe. Read it when I was nine, on recommendation from a teacher I adored! xx

  6. Nice reading update! You also have some great books on your "Next on my Nightstand". I just finished Thousand Splended Sun and am about to start The Girl who Played with Fire. Emma, Jayne Eyre, and Shutter Island are great books!!!
