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 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.
