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.

Ack, I'm behind on reviews this week!  Woe is me :(   I've been completely engrossed in Harry Potter & the Order of the Phoenix, so that should get me thinking about the Goblet of Fire review, right?  Um, sure.  Yeah, that makes me feel better :D

I will get in gear this week.  My course is slowing down a bit early this week, then it will pick up again next week, so this might be an off & on rest of the month.  August will be more blog-active.

Read This Week:
None finished :(

Currently Reading:
Harry Potter & the Order of the Phoenix- J.K. Rowling--loving it!
The Gunslinger (Dark Tower series, #1)- Stephen King--stalling a bit on it, am about 3/4 through
My Life- Bill Clinton--I actually squeezed in a couple of chapters this week, and am about halfway through (maybe a bit more)

Reviews This Week:
Okay, okay...that heading is just rubbing it in now :D

Next to Read:
If Order of the Phoenix ends on a climax like Goblet of Fire did, I'll probably move along to Half-Blood Prince; otherwise, maybe I'll hold off & try to get to a challenge book.  Something short, so my Monday numbers are higher than 0 :D

Have a great reading week :)  And I will catch up on your posts, too.


  1. Hope you enjoy your reading this week...sometimes we have to give ourselves a break from the pressure!


  2. Hi!
    I've been wanting to read the Bill Clinton book. Have a great day!

    Just Books

  3. I have not read any of the HP series.
    My kids do know all about it though and are off to the cinema this weekend.

    Have a better reading week this week :)


  4. OOH - reading Potter! YAY! And you cracked me up about your heading for reviews.... ahh, just dust it off.... LOL

  5. I had a Harry Potter week, too! I read Deathly Hallows (the last one), finished on Sunday, and then we went to see the movie. Book and movie were both fabulous! Isn't it great when a book is so amazing you don't want to do anything but read? Enjoy!
