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.

It feels so good to be back on track in the reading world.  The weather has been gorgeous here the last few days after a nasty windstorm in my area that took out a number of trees and roof shingles, but *knock wood* my house wasn't affected.

Rebecca- Daphne du Maurier (click title for review)
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy- Douglas Adams (review coming soon)

Currently Reading (2)
The Stone Diaries- Carol Shields- for What's in a Name 4 Challenge
My Life- Bill Clinton- on hold for now

Next to Read
Night Shift- Stephen King- for Stephen King Challenge- I've heard a lot about this & love Stephen King books

What are you reading?  I can't wait to catch up with everyone.  I've been feeling a bit antisocial this week, only having time to review and read.  I will definitely be more active with my comments this week :)


  1. I haven't read Rebecca since college, but I remember being shocked by how much I loved it (what? Enjoy required reading??) It's time for a re-read.

    Happy Reading!

  2. Can't wait to see your review of Hitchhiker's Guide! I started it like a year or two ago and couldn't get into it. So if you liked it, maybe I'll be re-inspired :)

  3. I have Rebecca on my shelf and have not read it yet but want to . I hope you enjoyed it!

  4. Oh goodie---I read Hitchhiker's Guide this past month and I'm still laughing. Can't wait for your review.


  5. You're on a roll! I'm just getting my reading groove back after a freakin' long slump. Hope to polish off a couple of books this week.


  6. Seems like it's been stormy weather everywhere. We were recently inundated with rain. Our sump pump failed and we got 6 inches of water in our basement.
    I read Rebecca long ago. Great book. It's still on my shelf. I should read it again.
