I don’t know if it was the Dewey’s 19 hours of reading I did or what, but I have no desire to read anything. I didn’t even post my Sunday Summary

even though I had a brand new header for it, as you can see.

So, to catch up, I’ll steal a page (or image) from Carla at Carla Loves to Read and do a quick Monday Summary,



If You Were a Writer (kids book–to be reviewed on PWR soon)

To be reviewed here soon

Searching for God Knows What to be reviewed here soon

Begun the day after Dewey’s for The Classics Club

Mindfulness finished during Dewey’s

Stone Sky by N.K. Jemisin

Listening to Madeline begun during Dewey’s

Pilgrim at Tinker Creek begun during Deweys’

I think I will concentrate on finishing what I’ve started, reading Simon, the Fiddler for my book club, and even take a break from reading blogs until I shepherd those last four students through the end of the semester. Come on, kids, get those papers in!

I think I just discovered the source of my grump! Humph!

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."
