STACKING THE SHELVES

As you can see, the last thing I need to do is stack any more TBR books on my shelves, but…
I haven’t written one of these in a long time and I see Carla of Carla Loves Books do it once a week.

Here are some books I added to my TBR:

FROM HALF PRICE BOOKS,

A trip to Barnes and Noble–ended up buying books for easy shipping Christmas presents–two books per person!

LOADED ON MY KINDLE:

See Tuesday Teaser on this blog.
See review of this book on this blog.

FINALLY

Received in the mail yesterday, Dreyer’s English by Benjamin Dreyer, which I’m considering using as a textbook next semester. I need a fresh start, so what better way to get one than changing the text?

Quite a haul, wouldn’t you say?

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. OMG… Anil’s Ghost is MARVELOUS! (Well, Ondaatje is my favorite author so I would say that. And I’ve read almost everything he’s ever written. I say almost because I haven’t read all his poetry – one one of those.)
