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.

So sorry to have abandoned the blog this week.  Don't worry, I'm still here :)  I managed to finish one book and will review it this week, and I've started a new one, which is very captivating so far.

Books Read This Week (1)
Misery- Stephen King (A)--Incredible!  I'll post my review soon.

Currently Reading (2)
The Cider House Rules- John Irving--Has grabbed my attention and won't let go!  And yes, I realize I skipped Rebecca to start this one instead...I love John Irving's books so much, I couldn't resist.

My Life- Bill Clinton--on hold for now

Next to Read
Rebecca- Daphne du Maurier

A Short Guide to Nearly Everything- Bill Bryson--for What's in a Name 4 challenge--a stopover in nonfiction should be nice for a change

I'll try to catch up on reading posts I missed this week.  Have you read anything outstanding lately?  What are you starting up this week?


  1. Oh Cider House Rules! Great choice! If you ahve a moment check mine out

  2. No need to apologize or make excuses - I had to take a bit of a blog break last week, too - just too much to do and too overwhelmed - it happens to all of us at one time or another. Since I wasn;t online much, I didn't notice you were gone :)

    I really enjoyed Cider House Rules - you're reading some really good books lately!


  3. I saw and really enjoyed the movie Misery. It is soooo good! I'm sure the novel is even better!

    I haven't read Cider House Rules yet so I am looking forward to your review.
