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 finally got around to using the new logo ;)

Well, it's back to work this week, though it will probably be slow-going as most teachers are refreshed from spring break and don't need time off.  Maybe a meeting or two will net me some work.  I have a few days booked ahead, so that's something to look forward to.

I had a great bookish week, buying a huge load of new titles at Book Depot & Chapters, and read 3 great books this week, with some fantastic looking ones ahead.

Books Read This Week (3)--click titles for reviews
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury (A+)--fantastic must-read for all book lovers!

A is For Alibi (Kinsey Milhone series, #1) by Sue Grafton (A)--a re-read for the 1st in a Series challenge; very good, highly enjoyable mystery

Harry Potter & the Philosopher's Stone by J.K. Rowling (known as The Sorceror's Stone in the U.S., Harry Potter series, #1) (A+)--another re-read for the 1st in a Series challenge.  It's "spellbinding" (hee hee) :D  Simply amazing & even better than I remembered it.  I'm definitely going to finish off this series as soon as I can.  Review for this coming soon.

Currently Reading (2)
Misery- Stephen King--started reading this last night & it started off very eerily, and now it's building up tension; this should be a good one!

My Life- Bill Clinton--on hold for now

Next to Read
Rebecca- Daphne du Maurier--not for a challenge but I've waited long enough to dive into this book that everyone says to "read now!"

The Cider House Rules- John Irving--I loved Garp and Owen Meany so much that I'm psyched to start another of Irving's modern classics!

What are you reading this week?  Have a good one :)


  1. I hope you enjoy Rebecca. I read it for my book club and had a tough time with it. I kind of skimmed the second half!

  2. I've been thinking about re-reading Harry Potter. My 10 year old finally seems interested.

    I loved Cider House Rules. Irving's books are kind of a hit or a miss for me. Some I dislike entirely and others I love. Can't think of any other author I have that experience with!

  3. Lots of different books to choose from.

    This week I am reading The Surprise Party by Sue Welfare.

    enjoy ur reading week

  4. I keep saying I want to read a SueG.

    Enjoy your week.

  5. You have two excellent books coming up! Have a wonderful week. My Monday:

  6. I enjoy the Sue Grafton books also, just waiting for V to hit the bookshelves soon.
