SUNDAY SUMMARY

This was more a week of recovering from our second Covid shot and catching up on schoolwork than reading.
I did finish a few things.

These three were all done, and I reviewed them as a trilogy on PWR.

This lovely portrait of Madeline L’Engle

I listened to this on Hoopla, thanks to my county library system.

I also listened to this one on either Hoopla or Cloud Library of the Brazoria County Library System.

This was a fine read I started and finished this week. It kept me turning pages. It was borrowed from the library.

My regular “devotional” which I was behind on, but I have now caught up and am ready for a new week.

This is a book I started (ordered it from a second hand online source) but with library books demanding attention and having due dates, I have had to put it aside. It is a most enjoyable novel. I intend to finish it this coming week.

This book I have put on my DNF (did not finish) list. Although it started out good, it is dragging, and I just do not have enough patience to continue.

I read the first two stories and explications/analyses in this remarkable book, and my time with it expired. I marked my notes and took it back to the library, but I have every intention of checking it out again (maybe not right away, but when school grading calms down) because it satisfies the Lit major in me. I read slowly and savored every page of the two stories and the pages of analysis on each.

If books are clutter, my house is VERY cluttered!

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. Even though it has been well over fifty years ago, I still remember getting a fifty-cent blue paperback in my Scholastic book order at school, and, too eager to read it to wait until I got home, starting to read the story of Meg and Charles Wallace and the three old ladies on my long bus ride home that day. It instantly became my favorite book, and it has always stayed with me.
