Crazy, book-ish decisions I made last week....
I was beat, but I went to our school’s Barnes and Noble night. I came home with three book club books, three books about Italy, the 1001 Photographs book, and a book of mindful poetry. And helped our school raise a little money.
I talked to our librarian supervisor and I’m going to the Texas Library Association Conference in early April. Yes, it’s last minute, but I can’t wait to visit the queen of all library conferences one more time. I may bring home enough review books to last me through my entire retirement.
Easter-ish books have arrived....
Everybunny Count by Ellie Sandall
Here Comes the Easter Beagle by Charles M. Schulz
Let’s Hatch Chicks: Explore the Wonderful World of Chickens and Eggs by Lisa Steele and illustrated by Perry Taylor
I'll be reading and reviewing these this week.
I spent all day writing yesterday, and it was delightful. Inprint Houston features lots of wonderful writing workshops in Houston each year, and I was privileged to get to experience an intensive, one-day personal essay writing session. One of the things I want to do before the end of the year is to publish a few books written by students at our school, and next week I’ll share some editing tips with my classes.
Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon is coming for the gazillionth time on Saturday, April 28, 2018. The last readathon marked the tenth year of readathons, started by our amazing online friend, Dewey, who sadly passed away a year after starting the 'thon. Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon can always use prizes (Any authors out there? Publishers?) and hosts (It’s fun...I’ve hosted many times) and, of course, readers. I’ve already received messages from the Goodreads group about some practice pre-readathons and a scavenger hunt, so I hope you will join in, too.
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.

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.
