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

  1. Ooh, congrats! Harry potter would be my pick too (judging from the ones I've read from your list!). The Gunslinger is very different from the rest of the series since it was written so much earlier. Good series though.

  2. Nice job closing out some challenges! You picked some great titles. I think I might have mentioned this previously, but I was also unimpressed with Rabbit, Run... and quite taken by the turn of events at the end. I really need to read The Boy in the Stripped PJs!
