TUESDAY TEASER

This meme, initiated by The Purple Booker and first introduced to me on Brainfluff. asks that we choose at random two or so sentences from our current read to share with other bloggers and readers. Mine today comes from The Little French Bistro by Nina George.

Mirianne, leaving her abusive husband after many years of a loveless marriage, finds herself in a small costal town in France.  She is taken in by an incredible cast of characters in a restaurant and hired as a cook after an unsuccessful attempt to take her own life.

A Whole Room to Myself. But just for one night, just one (she plans to try again the next day). For one night she would see what it was like to be a woman who had a room all to herself.

She put on her chef’s uniform and hesitantly placed the white hat on her head.  She was only a little anxious about cooking at Ar Mor (the restaurant’s name). She and the kitchen were roughly the same age: they would get on well.”

This is the end of chapter 15.

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. It’s grim, isn’t it? Especially when they keep suggesting you go online to read their handy tips about what you can do to improve the situation… Sorry to hear you’ve been smitten and I’m assuming you are now plugged in again! Long may it continue.
