My last Sunday (Evening) Post was on September 10th, so I have a good deal to post about the reading I have done since then.

Started Reading:

Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk  I used this book, which was contributed to my Little Free Library for my First Line Friday post recently and made the comment that the opening was so rough I wondered if I could read it. I read the first chapter so far and am still not sure.

Continuing to Read:

Dogsbody by Gary Paulsen The story seems very promising, but because I have several library books checked out presently, I have had to put it aside.

Fix It, Clean It, and Make It Last by the editors of FC&A (whatever that is) is a DIY book which is going very slowly because I am taking copious notes. It, too, was donated to my LFL.

The Inexplainable Logic of My life is by one of my favorite authors, Saenz, who also wrote Ari and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe, which was my introduction to this amazing author  It is on my Kindle app.

My Better Half and I are continuing to read aloud The Obelisk Gate.

Ruth Ozeki’s A Tale for the Time Being is a real “find,” and the perfect follow-up to listening to The Elegance of the Hedgehog.


Breakfast with Buddha by Merullo

Just Juice and The Burning Questions of Bingo Brown, two children’s chapter books which will be featured on Saturday’s Saturday Mornings for Kids post this coming week

I Want to Start Soon:

Bluebird, Bluebird, by Attica Locke, the Texas Gulf Coast Read and the October selection for our Third Tuesday Book Club

Evidence of Flossing by blogging friend Jennifer Payne, a collection of poetry

Ordinary Grace by William Kent Krueger, a novel we are considering as a book club selection  We have a “rule” that someone in the group has to have read the book before we consider it for a month’s selection.

As you can see, I have my work cut out for me, and since several of these are library books, I need to “get cracking.”

Happy Reading!

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."
