I wish I could say it was a good reading week at the Beckers...not so. I struggled to get in the reading I wanted to and when we left town this past weekend I managed to leave the house without the sacred book bag. Sigh...I think we need to get a library card at Grandma's house so even if mommy forgets the book bag we still have books to read.
Here's where Maddie & I did journey this week:
|Periodically, Maddie's daddy is around for books at bedtime.|
|Finished as part of Oregon Battle of the Books for grades 3-5. Liked it so much that I added Marty McGuire Digs Worms to my TBR. I dig a girl who likes to be in the dirt.|
|LOVED this as an #audiobook. The narrator was AH-MAZING! It's on the Oregon Battle of the Books list for grades 3-5 so I'll be reading it as well, but in the meantime just know that I fell in love with a small mouse with large ears.|
|I will actually be taking a short break from OBOB to read this in time for #virtualbookclub on 9/23/13.|
|This is my #audiobook for the week.|
I attended my school district's "First Thursdays" book club (held on the 2nd Tuesday since school started for us two weeks ago). The group has been meeting for years but somehow I missed the memo...literally. I'm happy to be part of the group now and will review at least one book per week for the group. Here's what I'm reviewing this week:
Sadly, I didn't make my writing goals this past week but I have high hopes for this week gaining perspective from a blog post on Two Writing Teachers about carving out time to write.
