What I Read: 4 books (1 re-read)
I spent the week getting to the end of two series as part of of the "Can You Read a Series in a Month?" challenge from Because Reading is Better than Real Life. I finished Someday, and I read March, volumes 1-3. I talk in more detail about all of them on my challenge wrap-up post.
What I'm Reading/What's Next
I'm in the middle of Pie in the Sky, which I just got for my classroom. So far, it's wonderful. A Chinese boy has immigrated to Australia, where he feels like a Martian, misses his late father, is annoyed by his little brother, and bakes cakes against his mother's directions. It has both text and comics, like Diary of a Wimpy Kid, (only with more plot).
I also intend to finish Donna Gephart's In Your Shoes so I can start the ARC of her The Paris Project. Which is a whole lotta middle grade in a row, so I will most likely read some YA or adult book(s) in there too.
- There are chocolate chip cookies in the oven right now. So this afternoon will involve reading and eating cookies. Living the dream.
- My kid was at Outdoor School this week. Do they have that where you live? It's a sixth grade rite of passage in these parts. My oldest sister went, so that must have been in 1968 or so. The next two missed it because of funding issues, then I went in, oh, 1980? It faded out for several years around the turn on of the century, but people were upset enough about that many districts were actually able to pass levies just to pay for it. She had a great time and came home exhausted.
- I finished season one of "Dead to Me." I really enjoyed it. We also watched season one of "It's Bruno," which was odd and hilarious and told in 10-15 minute episodes, so it was easy to fly through.
I hope everyone has a great week!
