This meme asks that one copy the first line(s) of a current read in an attempt to “hook” others. With that in mind, here is the first line of The Rosie Result, the final book in the Don Tillman Trilogy.
“I was standing on one leg shucking oysters when the problems began.”
Weird? No weirder than the loveable main character of the Rosie series, Don Tillman. I loved the first book, The Rosie Project; enjoyed the second, The Rosie Effect; and am in for a good holiday-weekend read with The Rosie Result. I can hardly wait to begin!

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."

Ha! That is one heck of an opening line, Rae. Glad you’re enjoying this trilogy so much and I very much hope the final book is as good as the previous two:))
