Read With Me Readathon


For months now, my TBR shelves have been filling up, I have six books I received from requests at my local library, there’s a Jemisin sci-fi book I haven’t gotten to—IT’S TIME FOR A PERSONAL READATHON!!! Who wants to join me? SIGN UP TODAY!

SATURDAY, OCTOBER SECOND, beginning at 7 a.m. CDT

Read along with Rae in the READ WITH ME READATHON

Get your snacks from the store tomorrow and cook ahead, so all you’ll have to do Saturday is warm over.

My Better Half is the first to sign up…look for the comments and be the next. There is no ending time, just read, read, read for as long as you can, then sign off. I hope to do at least twelve hours, myself.

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."
