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

Monday Meme / Monthly Wrap-Up

A weekly meme hosted by Sheila @ Book Journey.

FINALLY!  I'm back on track.  After three weeks with a heavy work schedule and a big side project on family genealogy, I can catch up on my reading.

Books Read in the Last 3 Weeks (2)
(Reviews coming soon)
The Cider House Rules- John Irving
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets- J.K. Rowling

Currently Reading
Rebecca- Daphne du Maurier
This is my mom's favourite book and I'm borrowing her copy.  I love the descriptive prose and am intrigued so far.

Next to Read
I'll get back to my challenge books.  Probably something shorter to get my momentum back in check.

I hope everyone had a great Easter weekend or Passover.  I can't wait to catch up on all the great books you've read.  Prepare for my comments to appear on old posts :D


  1. Welcome back!

    I have read Rebecca twice and loved it both times ... de Maurier is a beautiful writer ... enjoy!

  2. Looks like we both had to catch up on the last few weeks :-) I've heard mixed reviews about Rebecca, so I hope you like it and can't wait to see what you think.

  3. I read the Cider House Rules many years ago and really enjoyed it.

    Hope you enjoy your books now that your schedule has quieted down a bit!


  4. What did you think of Cider House Rules? I found it very disturbing. I reread Rebecca after several years of telling people it was one of my favorite books. I didn't like it as much the second time. I think it is because I knew what was coming up next.

  5. Enjoy your reading week!


  6. I recently purchased Rebecca based on someone else's recommendation. I hope you enjoy it!
