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.

Summer is here at last!  I'm starting a month-long course, and while I'll try to keep up with reviews & memes, my workload may start to interfere.  It doesn't look too demanding (*I hope*) but consider this a heads-up and my excuse for any subsequent slacking off :D

Read This Week:  (2)
Film Flam- Larry McMurtry (C) (click title for review)
To Kill a Mockingbird- Harper Lee--review coming soon--it's definitely an A+!

Currently Reading:  (2)
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire- J.K. Rowling--finished the Qudditch World Cup chapter last night--exciting!
My Life- Bill Clinton--no progress on this one in months :(  *sigh*  I hope to finish this before I'm old & gray

Next to Read:
The Giver- Lois Lowry--I've heard it's incredible.  I might try to dip into this one as I read HP: GofF as it's rather long & I have this & other challenge books to catch up on, especially for Back to the Classics.

Have a great reading week :)


  1. Wonderful book selections. Have a fabulous week and enjoy your books.
    My Monday:

  2. I haven't read The Giver either, which is some sort of cardinal sin for a librarian. Please drop by my blog and vote for your favorite Sarah Dessen book. I'm trying to figure out which of hers I should read first. Thanks.

  3. Yay for reading HP and The Giver!! :) Enjoy.

  4. To Kill a Mockingbird is still one of my very favorite books. Had you never read it before now?
