Hi All! I am enjoying a random day off, and after my busy weekend I totally need it. I thought I would spend the day catching up on some reading (Goodreads tells me I am 5 books behind schedule. Curse you Goodreads.), but instead I am catching up on some Parks and Recreation episodes. I have decided that readathons are for catching up on reading. Mental health days are for sit-com marathons. Ok, time for a quick check in with my favorite Monday hosts, Book Journey and Teach Mentor Texts for It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? Trust me, this will be brief.
I really enjoyed The Supremes at Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat by Edward Kelsey Moore. It is charming, touching, and quite hilarious. I also reread The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson for my teen book club. This is a great book club selection-it’s full of great discussion issues. And that is it. Two measly, but great, book. Of course I am so close to finishing a couple of others…
I totally slacked on the elliptical last week, so I am not quite finished with Poison by Bridget Zinn, but I am motivated to be better this week. I have a disc and a half left of Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta. I am sold. I was skeptical at first, but I got sucked in.
Slowly But Surely:
That’s all. Back to my marathon.
