Happy Monday! My Hurricane Sandy clean-up is almost complete. Now, if I could just get a sunny, dry day to do some yard work…Waiting for things to dry out is a great excuse to read. Like I need an excuse to ignore housework in order to read…
I have finally made it to A Dance With Dragons by George R.R. Martin, so you know that is just about the only thing I am reading. And thinking about. But I do have a few things to report, because it’s Monday and Book Journey and Teach Mentor Texts want to know what I am reading.
First a confession. I abandoned a book this week. I gave up on listening to A Wrinkle in Time, read by Madeleine L’Engle herself! I clearly remember loving this book as a kid. As an adult I found it to be a pretentious snooze-fest. Yikes! I gave it up so that I can continue to love it through child-like glasses (a distant cousin of both rose-colored glasses and the black sheep of the family, beer goggles). Meg Murray, I loved you once and will treasure your memory, but we don’t really need to keep in touch.

I am still of pace to meet my Goodreads goal, so I may try to sneak some more graphic novels in this week and Dragons is going much quicker than I had expected so I am still hopeful that I will make my goal. What are you working on this week?
