With apologies to the bloggers who began and hosted this site/meme, I am flying by the seat of my pants and listing WHAT I have finished this week, WHAT I am reading now, and WHAT I am looking forward to reading.
THIS WEEK I finished: What Great Teachers Do Differently by Todd Whitaker (reviewed on Literacy Lessons/Literacy and Me)//My Name is Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Stroud, and another of her most recent books, Modern Lovers. I have now set a goal for myself to read everything she has written.
I AM CONTINUING to read: The Obelisk Gate by N.K. Jemisin, a sci fi masterpiece, the second book in “The Broken Earth Series.” I am also reading two children’s books from the school library where I now volunteer which gives both the English and Spanish wording of the text. Like the kids in first and second grade who picked these books out for me and are in a bilingual class, I read best from looking at the pictures and guessing than actually translating line by line. The books are helpful to me in my attempts to “pick up Spanish.” I am listening to Stephen King’s audio book Mr. Mercedes as part of the audio book challenge I have taken on for 2019. (This will be discussed in a future post on this blog.)
I AM LOOKING FORWARD to reading Evidence of Flossing by Jen Payne, a book of poetry accompanied by a photo essay, which I have looked at and randomly read a poem or two, but I would like to undertake a “study” or immersion into what I know will be a terrific reading experience.
That’s where I stand this second week in January. Where are you, and where are you headed in your reading life? Please comment and share with me your own experiences so far in 2019.
