14 Things You’ll Relate to If You Have an Endless To-Read Pile

Author: Rae Longest

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."

  1. Sigh. Oh, I relate to all of those. I went in to Waterstones (UK bookstore chain) and just slavered over all those lovely new releases, ready for Christmas. I could have bought so many…. in fact I ordered one of them in hardback, and restricted myself to that. Sigh. (again). I must go Down the TBR Hole again soon, to test another ten books on the nether regions of my TBR to see whether they should come off it! Of course, I had another look in the bookshop at one I know I took off my list last time. No. It is NOT going back on it, and I am NOT going to buy it. No. Really.
