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 marks my fiftieth year in AAUW (American Association of University Women). The Alvin chapter was begun in 1947, and as a new, green teacher to Alvin Independent School District, I joined in 1968. In the 80's we began a book group to share our love of reading, books,and fellowship with other women and girls who loved the same. We resurrected the group on-line in September of 2015. Eventually Powerful Women Readers folded as an on-line book club, but I kept the title and turned it into a blog. (See "Introduction,"first blog). This is my first experience at blogging or publishing anything and is becomes more fun with each blog posted. I am currently teaching as an adjunct at The University of Houston Clear Lake. This makes my 28th year there after three years at Alvin Community College and an almost-twenty year career as a classroom teacher with Alvin Independent School District. Reading and writing are "in my blood" just like teaching is. I hope you enjoy the blog.
