Happy Monday. Oh, so happy first official day of vacation Monday…Since I haven’t left town yet, I thought I would take a break from pre-vaca errands and tell you about the Summer Throwdown and the one and only book that I finished last week.
I was so excited to learn that there was going to be another Summer Throwdown. Last year it was Teachers vs. Librarians. They changed things up this year and now its more of a You vs. You kind of deal. Last year I read 14 books during the throwdown. This year I am going to try for 20 books between July 1 and July 31. I know it’s not us vs them this year, but I am still totally on the librarian team.
Ok, since it’s Monday, and my friend MB was worried about missing my Monday lists, let’s move on to It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? For more great lists you can also check out Book Journey and Teach Mentor Texts
I think I have needed a break from all the paranormal, because I have just been loving the contemporary picks lately. Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz, is a beautiful coming of age story. Worthy of all the awards and accolades. The reader for the audio was also super. I am glad I finally read this special book.
Continuing with my contemporary fiction theme, I am finally getting around to a Sara Zarr book. Things are really starting to get good in Secrets to the Grave!
My Nook is full, I have hours and hours of books on CD, and more books than I can possibly read in two and a half weeks on the farm, but darn it, I like choices! Stay tuned!
