Tuesday Teaser

Grab a book you’re currently reading, turn to a random page and type two or so sentences.  Try to avoid spoilers. The idea is we will be tempted to add what you are reading to our TBR list/stack. Be sure to include the title and author.

Here’s mine for today: “Behind me the branches and trees crunched and snapped as the creature tore through them. I didn’t scream–there was no one who could come to help me, nothing that could stop the monster that lurched behind me.  The only thing I could do was run faster.”

This is from Freeks by Amanda Hocking–and this is just the Prologue!

This year (2019) finds me with 50 plus 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."
