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

Books Read Last Week:  Nothing :( 

Currently Reading:  I'm about halfway through The Stone Diaries and it's a bit slow to get through. 

Reviews:  I still need to review The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and I really shouldn't put it off much longer or I'll forget what I wanted to write!

Work has been dry this past week and the weather has been miserable, so I've been doing some family history research at the library and got on a roll, which has been more appealling to me lately than the book I'm currently on.

Next to Read:  Night Shift- Stephen King-- Hurray!  I can practically guarantee that I'll like this :)

What are you reading this week?


  1. I hope the Stephen King is good, I find when my expectations are high they are not usually met.

  2. I haven't read a King book in ages. The last one, and I can't even recall the title, gave me nightmares from the visualizations I created for weeks.

  3. Gosh I thought The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy had been out for a while. You don't hear about it so much anymore, even though it is a classic. I should think you'll enjoy it.

    Anyway, have a great week! :) Enjoy all your books.

  4. I've had a slow reading week as well. And I also have a book I read a while ago that I need to write about. I didn't like it so I've been putting off writing the review!

  5. Hitchhiker's Guide and Night Shift are both good reads!

    Thanks for telling me about Easy A - we might just have to rent that!


  6. Family history research is so addictive, isn't it? And can be so time-consuming. But satisfying. Have a great week of reading or whatever!

  7. My reading was slow last week too. Must be the mid-year funk?

    I've got a Stephen King coming up soon too - Salem's Lot. Can't wait to get around to it!

    Bill Bryson has a gift for making complex things interesting and easy to understand. A Short History of Nearly Everything is an amazing book, the best place to start :)

  8. My husband and son read Hitchhiker's Guide together. My son's verdict was good but weird. I'll be interested in your opinion!

  9. I have not read Stephen King in years- hope you enjoy it!
