PWR MARATHON and Rae’s Reading Race

You are invited on this loose, lax ,reading marathon, and here’s how you can participate:

Start reading tomorrow (Thurs. Oct 13th) as soon as you can and read as much as you can as often as you can whatever you can (Here’s a chance to finish those books you’ve started and laid aside until later.) until 6:00 p.m. Saturday (the 15th) evening.  Keep a log if you like. If you are in the vicinity, show up at 1:00 p.m. (Sorry, ladies only) Sunday for Rae’s Reading Race where you will share what you have read and what you are reading and take notes on what you want to read. Others may report in to this blog on-line; however, sandwiches do not translate well on line, nor do cookies and coffee…sorry!

On my Sunday (Evening) Post, I will make a short report  and will give a detailed report on Monday’s post.  Get your own report/log/accomplishments from the marathon in by Sunday evening.

Join us if you can.

This year (2019) finds me with 50 years of teaching "under my belt." I have taught all levels from pre-K "(library lady" or "book lady"--volunteer) to juniors, seniors, and graduate students enrolled in my Advanced Writing class at the university where I have just completed 30 years. My first paying teaching job was junior high, and I spent 13 years with ages 12-13, the "difficult years." I had some of the "funnest" experiences with this age group. When I was no longer the "young, fun teacher," I taught in an elementary school setting before sixth graders went on to junior high, teaching language arts blocs, an assignment that was a "dream-fit" for me. After completing graduate school in my 40s, I went on to community college, then university teaching. Just as teaching is "in my blood," so is a passion for reading, writing, libraries, and everything bookish. This blog will be open to anyone who loves books, promotes literacy and wants to "come out and play."
