“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.
Here is what I have read in the past month. I enjoyed many of these books for a variety of reasons. In fact, there is not a dud in the bunch.
Those with an # I would highly recommend.
An * indicates my ‘must own’ list, either for myself or my classroom library.
What was the book I was only 43% through last month? Here is it is. (When I went to post the link I found out it was originally published as three books. No wonder it is well over 900 pages!)
