A BRIEF SUNDAY SUMMARY 1/17/21

Waiting for the semester to start, and trying to stay safe at home, I did a good deal of reading to pass the time.

I Was able to tie up some loose ends by finishing several books I’d started some time ago. (Grunge rubber stamp with word Finished inside,vector illustration)

TO BE REVIEWED SOON ON PWR.

Will probably not review this one. I found it disturbing, especially since it was a speculative “take” on an actual situation.
An especially helpful book–first non-fiction read of 2021

Started and finished this book in the 2 week time period between Sunday Summaries as part of my Madeline L’Engle project for 2021. TO BE REVIEWED SOON ON PWR
Started and finished in this 2 week time frame again. REVIEWED RECENTLY ON PWR
Read in two days, a real page turner TO BE REVIEWED SOON ON PWR

My go-to inspirational reading for daily thought

Panchinko by Min Jin Lee–I have checked this out of the library and just begun it this weekend.

I WILL NOT BE POSTING WHAT I WATCHED THIS TIME, WATCHED WAAAY TOO MUCH!

That’s it for today’s Sunday Summary. Classes begin after the MLK Holiday, so I hope I will be reading as much in the days to come. In the meantime,

HAPPY READING!

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."
