“It’s Monday! What are you Reading?” is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
It is a chance for book lovers to share their reading accomplishments as well as what is on the proverbial nightstand. She even does a giveaway. Subsequently Jen and Kellee at Teach Mentor Texts added an opportunity for those reading kidlit to join the fun. Since I read both I will post to both.
Check them out, join the conversations, and discover more great books.
This is my first time joining in. I have been pondering participating in the fun and finally decided I would kick off with everything I read in January. My list does not include books read with my students. Those are kept on an ever growing display in our room. I enjoyed many of these books for a variety of reasons, but the one with an * is on my ‘must own’ list.
