With the school year in full swing, I have not been able to read as much lately. During SSR I have been doing running records. It looks like I will be meeting with a group of students for guided reading during SSR for most of the year, so my days of enjoying a good book and regrouping during SSR may be over. I will have to make reading at home a priority.
I just started reading:
Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging
P.J. Hoover's ARC of The Emerald Tablet
I have been reading off and on:
Hearts and Hands: Creating Community in Violent Times
La travesia de Enrique
All these books are stacked on the shelf on my computer desk, to be read in a timely fashion (hopefully):
The Lovely Bones
The Joy Luck Club
Bridget Jones's Diary
Noticia de un secuestro
Dreaming in Cuban
Olivia Joules and the Overactive Imagination
Cuando Era Puertorriquena
Fifteen Minutes of Shame
Good in Bed
A Thread of Grace
Water for Elephants
The Tale of Despereaux
There are loads more of books in my classroom library that I also can't wait to read.
Right now my husband and girls are all taking naps, so the house is nice and peaceful. After going to church and then doing housework for most of the day, I am trying to decide whether to do more plans for my guided reading groups or to curl up in my favorite spot of my house (a sitting room where I have a rocker) and read... If only this were still the start of my weekend instead of the end:).
