img_1384-0 WHAT books have you just finished? WHAT are you reading currently? WHAT will you read next?, and I will add, WHAT have you watched? These are the questions Miz B at Daily Rhythms initiated and Sam at Taking on a World of Words now asks as she hosts this fun meme.

It has been so long since I’ve played this “game” but here are my answers for Wednesday, May 27th, 2020.

978052565333251xiwfeZsnL._SL300_ It was a good week to read, and I finished all these: three novels, a memoir, a collection of short story/fantasy urban legends, and two non-fiction books. One, Funny, You Don’t Look Autistic, I started from scratch; the others I had already begun. Kristin Higgins was a new author to me.

9780451489395 WHAT are you continuing to read? Two novels, 51cJvgfnQ6L._SY346_ WSleepless_(novel) WHAT I will read next is the book for “M” of my 2020 Alphabet Soup Challenge, then I’ll continue going through a box full of samples for various writing manuals My Better Half found in a discard pile, “stealing” ideas, and enjoying the essays in the “Reader” sections.

WHAT I have watched in addition to a movie here and there on Netflix is PBS’s World On Fire, a fantastic series about WWII set in Germany, Russia, Poland and Britain, as well as resistance pockets throughout Europe. It is a fine series.

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."

      1. Ditto Bournemouth and Brighton beaches. It doesn’t help that here there is a scandal about the government’s chief advisor driving the length of the country with his family at the height of the epidemic, while infected. But that’s okay, apparently. He ‘used his judgement’. While the rest of us suckers stayed indoors while our loved ones suffered without our support – grrrr!
