What are you reading this week?


Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at The Printed Page. We share books that we found in our mailboxes last week.  

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is where we share what we read this past week, what we hope to read this week…. and anything in between!  This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from! I love being a part of this and I hope you do too! As part of this weekly meme Book Journey loves to encourage you all to go and visit the others participating in this meme.

  4. Tortoise and Hare is beautifully illustrated. I love how Pinkney used the illustrations along with a minimal amount of text to tell the story.

  5. I'm always interested in reading books about people. Not sure I know any more about people than I did when I was five, though. Very complex.

  6. Thanks, Diane. I can't wait to see what the children at my school library think about them. That's always the true test of good books, I think....if I can sell the children on good ones.
