It's Monday! What are you reading?

I’m joining Jen & Kellee (and many other bloggers) in discussing what we are reading this week. Join us! Go to their site and link up your own blog.

Man alive – I still didn’t finish Crow. That shouldn’t be an indication that the book isn’t wonderful, it is. More like it shows how crazy your life is at the end of a school year and as I prepare for my own finals and write final papers as well. Ugh! Only a few books read this week but lots of reading was accomplished:
·      Blog on reading, running, and teaching
·      Twitter – daily. Sometimes hourly.
Facebook – ditto.
·      Magazines – Midwest Living, Better Homes and Gardens
·      Book responses from my students – online and in their journals
·      Articles online like this one about Pearson and their stranglehold on testing
·      And a few books – see below (an * by any favorites.)
o   Waterless Mountain Laura Adams Armer
o   The Curious Garden Peter Brown *
o   Young Fu of the Upper Yangtze Elizabeth Foreman Lewis
o   Nate the Great Marjorie weinman Sharmat (* a reread)

This week I really want to finish Crow and The One and Only Ivan – reading that one with my boys. Grad school two nights, three little league games, and one open house conspire to make it a tough week but we will muster through!

Have a great reading week everyone!
