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 (again) this week as I'll be out book shopping most of the day (Monday).  I hope to have lots to share in another post today or tomorrow!

Books Read This Week (2)--click titles for my reviews
Oprah- Kitty Kelley--quite a fascinating book, full of controversy & intrigue

The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe- C.S. Lewis (Narnia series, #1)--a lovely magical read

Currently Reading (2)
Fahrenheit 451- Ray Bradbury--eerie!  I love the vintage futuristic style and its frightening message.

My Life- Bill Clinton

Next to Read
A is For Alibi (Kinsey Milhone series, #1) by Sue Grafton--a re-read for the 1st in a Series challenge

Harry Potter & the Philosopher's Stone by J.K. Rowling (known as The Sorceror's Stone in the U.S.)--another re-read for the 1st in a Series challenge.  I can't wait to dig into this series again (I've only read the first 3 books) & I'm determined to finish them all by next year.

Other Reviews Posted This Week
Middlesex- Jeffrey Eugenides--finished last week & got the review up last Wednesday.

What are you reading this week?  Have a good one!

P.S.  Stay tuned for news from my trip to the Book Depot...and probably Chapters, too :)


  1. Sounds like you had a good reading week. I can't wait to see what you think of HP, and I'm glad you liked Middlesex. I really enjoyed that book!

  2. You have a lot of good picks there - C S Lewis, J K Rowling, Ray Bradbury - wow!

  3. Fahrenheit is on my list too! Glad you're enjoying it.

    Happy reading this week!

  4. I started rereading Harry Potter this year too. I never read the last two books, so like you I want to read all of them this year. Hope you enjoy them!

  6. Great assortment of books this week! I read Middlesex last year and liked it. I really need to read Fahrenheit 451. I think I'd like that one.
