If you came over from TEACH MENTOR TEXTS, please know that I am having technical difficulties today. I have no idea why, but Mr. Linky is taking everyone to a post that is six weeks old. I actually have a new post about reading I have done this week. You can follow that link or cut and paste below. Sorry about the mix up.
I think I read a fair amount. Or at least I think I read a fair amount until I read everyone else's IT'S MONDAY, WHAT ARE YOU READING posts at TEACH MENTOR TEXTS. Which, if I am really honest, tend to make me feel totally discouraged. Because I think I have had a pretty good reading week if I have read at least one novel. And some people read one a day! Holy cow! In the summer I get more read, but in the winter, I just kind of plod along. Anyway, here is what I read this week.
SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED came out a month or so ago, so when I got a gift certificate to Barnes and Noble, I knew exactly what book I wanted to buy. Most of Lamott's memoir books are shortish, stand alone chapters, which I tend to get through pretty quickly. This one is actually sequential, and it's taking me a little longer I'm about three-fourths of the way through the book right now. I will probably post about the book when I finish it later this week.
I also read GLORY BE, a middle grade historical fiction novel about life in the segregated south during the Civil Rights movement. I posted about that yesterday. Next, I am planning to read PENNIES FROM HEAVEN by Jennifer Holm and DEAD END IN NORVELT. I got all three of those at the Scholastic Warehouse Sale on Saturday.
