This month I have read lots of Slices from Two Writing Teachers’ Slice of Life Challenge. There are 30 days (so far) with well over two hundred posts a day. There’s some really inspiring writing. The other thing that is different in March, I read loads of stuff about the Iditarod (as I wrote about here). But I still managed to get some books read…
“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 atTeach 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.
Books marked with an '*' I would put in my classroom library.
Books marked with a '#' would be in an middle or high school library.
Books marked with a ‘@’ would be good for adult book clubs.
