Reading the Cybils
Yes, this is what it looks like when you attempt to read 253 fiction picture books and board books for the Cybils Award. I wanted to stack all the books up into one huge pile, but I've got them so nicely sorted (ha!) here that I couldn't bear to mess up my organization. I currently have over 150 books checked out from four libraries and I'm steadily acquiring the books I just couldn't find from publishers. I have exactly fifty books left to read and a little less than five weeks to come up with my favorites. This is an incredibly exhausting, incredibly fun adventure.
What Did I Finish This Week?
Of course you mean what did I finish other than the Cybils I'm reading night and day, day and night, right? I'm making steadily progress in all of my nonfiction reads. I finished Everyone Loves Paris and Start Where You Are: A Journal for Self-Exploration. I'm halfway through with my other five reads: Am I Alone Here? Notes on Reading to Live and Living to Read; The Bread Baker's Apprentice: Mastering the Art of Extraordinary Bread; How to Travel Without Seeing: Dispatches from the New Latin America; NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity; and White Trash: The 400-Year Untold History of Class in America. If all goes well, I should finish all of these this week during my time off school.
Week 3: (Nov 14 – 18) – (Sarah) Book Pairing:
That book leads to another book, and so on, and so on.
My Mrs. Brown to Mrs. 'Arris Goes to Paris to Girl in Dior
I'll be off now to get some reading done!
What are you reading today?
What is the Sunday Salon? Imagine some university library's vast reading room. It's filled with people--students and faculty and strangers who've wandered in. They're seated at great oaken desks, books piled all around them,and they're all feverishly reading and jotting notes in their leather-bound journals as they go. Later they'll mill around the open dictionaries and compare their thoughts on the afternoon's literary intake....That's what happens at the Sunday Salon, except it's all virtual. Every Sunday the bloggers participating in that week's Salon get together--at their separate desks, in their own particular time zones--and read. And blog about their reading. And comment on one another's blogs. Think of it as an informal, weekly, mini read-a-thon, an excuse to put aside one's earthly responsibilities and fall into a good book. Click here to join the Salon.
The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It's a chance to share news and recap the past week.
Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at The Printed Page. We share books that we found in our mailboxes last week.
It is now being hosted here.

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! It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is now being hosted at The Book Date.
