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

March Wrap-Up & Missed Monday Meme

Work has been very busy this week, so here's a quick update while I'm thinking on it:

Contact- Carl Sagan
Persuasion- Jane Austen
The Eyre Affair- Jasper Fforde
Coraline- Neil Gaiman

Jane Eyre- Charlotte Bronte
Seriously...I'm Kidding- Ellen DeGeneres
11/22/63- Stephen King

And now for the (belated) Monday meme:

Read This Week:  (1)
Coraline- Neil Gaiman
I loved his use of language and the mood he created was eerie and fascinating.  Some of the story was a bit "meh" for me.  I think I would have liked it better if I had the opportunity to read it as a child.

Currently Reading:  (2)
The Count of Monte Cristo- Alexandre Dumas
Technically a re-read this time with an unabridged edition.

My Life- Bill Clinton

Reviews This Week:
11/22/63- Stephen King

Next to Read:
It will probably be a week or two before I can finish Count of Monte Cristo, so I won't decide that now and let spontaneity take over :)
