It's that time of the week where we share our reading. I had started "The Book Thief" last week but a call from the library changed the course of my reading.
3 books i had reserved were in and that is what I ended up reading (I didn't want to rack up fines was my excuse). So, I read:
The Mighty Miss Malone by Christopher Paul
I loved Deza and how she handled all of the challenges in her life. It was a great description of the Depression era.
See You at Harry's by Jo Knowles
Another strong character in Fern. I got so caught up in the dynamics of the family, I stayed up reading til 3 a.m. one day last week. I had to see how it was resolved. Excellent writing, excellent story telling.
32 Third Graders and One Class Bunny by Philip Done
Since I teach grade 3, I have been wanting to read this for awhile. I don't think I laughed so much. So many of his stories I have experienced and know so well. What a fun read!
I will read "The Book Thief" this week as well as continue with my professional reading. Only 3 weeks til school begins, so have to squeeze in as much reading as possible!
