Be honest with me now. Did you just vote on the color scheme you liked?
I had 24 people that responded to my survey about which books to read for tomorrow's read-a-thon. There was a bit of a rush towards the end that knocked off the front-runners, so it was all very exciting for me.
Scrappy Little Nobody led the pack all week, and I figure it will be a pretty easy read. My students gave me a ringing endorsement of The Seventh Most Important Thing, which one team is reading in language arts right now, so I will keep it handy as well.
The Memory of Things stole the crown.
This is another one that caught me off guard today. Firegirl had been a clear winner as of last night. Looks like I'll be giving Nine, Ten a try instead. Of course, these being the short MG books, they are all contenders to be slipped into the lineup when I get tired.
Heartless, on the other hand, seized the lead early and never let it go. There were several shout-outs for My Lady Jane in the comments though.
A Gentleman in Moscow was the other steady leader. Which is good, since it's the one I mentioned earlier that won a similar vote previously but...I haven't read it yet. And I want to! I really do! So I will probably start my day with that, since it is pretty hefty.
There are a few graphic novels hanging around the house that I haven't read yet, so I will shuffle them into rotation when I need a break. My daughter is waiting for me to read the second book in Spencer Quinn's Bowser and Birdie series so I can read the third one with her, so I may get to that too. Overall I tend to be pretty flighty when trying to stick to reading lists, so it's really anybody's guess as to what I will ACTUALLY read, but I am going to pull this stack together and look to it first.
Nice blue and black stripe you chose for me! I, of course, thought immediately of the Estonian flag.
