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.

Read This Week:  (1)
Persuasion- Jane Austen (A)
Loved it :)  I'm officially hooked on Jane Austen.  It goes to show how timeless her work is.

Currently Reading:  (2)
The Eyre Affair- Jasper Fforde
It's quite a world to settle into at first but now that I'm used to it, it's getting good!

My Life- Bill Clinton
New goal:  Finish this book by my 50th birthday :D  Just kidding...I just need to read a chunk at a time and I should be able to (finally) finish it.

Reviews This Week:  (1)
Seriously...I'm Kidding- Ellen DeGeneres (B)

Next to Read:
No idea...I'll keep my options open & go with what jumps out at me first :)

I also posted about joining the Classics Club this week and you can view my TBR list for this 5-year challenge.  Thanks again Jillian for hosting :)

Have a great week of reading, everyone!


  1. I love your classics list for the classics club. The club is a great idea. I'll have to think about it. I like the classics challenge, but that comes in smaller chunks. A 5-year challenge may be too much for me.

  2. I really need to read more Jane Austen...

  3. Hello T/L,
    so glad you liked Pursuasion. it is one of my favorites by Austen. I've heard about the Classic Club from other bookbloggers, but as Susan said, % years is a very long time to plan for.
    First time on your blog, and totally loved it! Your reviews are light and crispy, and raise a reader's curiosity. looking forward to more reviews... following you now!
