It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Be sure to visit Teach Mentor Texts and Unleashing Readers to learn more about the link up for It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

I read a lot over break, I made it a priority. Most mornings I would wake up, read Twitter or Facebook for a bit, and then read for an hour or two. With boys that are pretty independent at this point, it was a lovely luxury. Friends always ask how I can possibly read as much as I do. The simple answer is, I make the time for it. I don't really watch TV, I read. I have a book with me everywhere we go. I read when I'm waiting. I listen to audiobooks in the car. It makes me relax, and makes me happy, so I make time. 

Here's what I read the last week of break:

And while I loved them all, wowza, there is something special about Echo. And I loved How to Outswim a Shark Without Your Snorkel so much, it will be one of the first I book talk. Next up? Wild Things: Acts of Mischief in Children's Literature.  Have a great week!
