So, I have no idea what prompted me to read this book. I guess technically, I listened to this book, but you know what I mean. I think I ran across it when I was looking for something to listen to at the library, and I know I’ve seen it as I perused the listing of the most checked-out books in our local paper, Continue reading The Thirteenth Tale: A Novel by Diane Setterfield
I found this on Musings of a Bookish Kitty blog and thought it was interesting. I’ve finished a couple of books lately, but have been thinking about how to review them, so check back soon.
The below listed books are the top 106 books most often tagged as being unread by LibraryThing users (as of October 3rd), and since I Library Thing, this seemed an interesting list.
The instructions are simple: Bold what you have read, and italicize (I think the only book that I started and couldn’t finish was _Eragorn_) books you have started but couldn’t finish. Add an asterisk* to those you have read more than once. Underline those on your TBR list (in my case this means I own them, but have yet to read them). The ones marked in red are books I am considering reading one day but do not have on hand.

One Hundred Years of Solitude

So, I was reading something for one of my classes this week that got me thinking about the books that I read and loved as a kid. This got me to thinking about the first books I remember reading. I know the first book that I remember being read to me — Continue reading First Book?
Okay, so before I actually started my book blog, I logged many hours reading other people’s book blogs. I read all kinds of wonderful, interesting posts ranging from book reviews to people’s reflections about the influences that started them reading. Some of the posts that intrigued me most were the posts from people who live in larger cities than I, and wrote about Continue reading Free Books….
I am a teacher. I teach English at a great high school and, for the most part, have great kids. Today, some very creative kids (read: not so much) decided that they wanted to bring some excitement to our lives. Their idea involved the fire department, and since they implemented their plan five minutes into lunch, the entire school got to spend the time they would usually eat lunch outside standing in the road, and not eating. By the time the fire department cleared the school, it was time for class. My AP kids Continue reading Kids will be kids….
So, I finished Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows last night at midnight and then got up at 6 to be ready to teach summer school. Was it worth it? OF COURSE! This last Harry Potter book has officially become my favorite! Unlike most books and movies that are so hyped up and looked forward to (the series finale of Alias, for example), Rowling delivered! Other than a few minor issues like Continue reading Really the end?
Well, here it is. My first post. Right now, I’m trying to figure this whole thing out, but eventually, I plan to write reviews and keep track of the books that I read. I’ll probably start with some reviews of my favorite books and move to what I’m reading now. So–stay tuned!
