You, too, can participate. Simply open a book you’re currently reading, copy a couple of sentences from a random page, and we’ll see if we’re tempted to add the book to our TBR (To Be Read) list.  Be sure to give us the title and author, and please avoid spoilers.

Here’s mine from Freeks by Amanda Hocking:

“Since we’d gotten to Caudry, I’d had these weird flashes of cold, especially in my chest, but that was all.  There I was , mere feet away from this super-powerful water, and everybody else’s senses were going wacko.” (The characters are called “freeks” because they have super-powers.) “That was all the proof I needed that I didn’t have the same ‘gift’ as my mother.”

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.
