It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 9/9/13

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is an opportunity for everyone to share their book journeys: where we've been for the week and where we plan to go next. To learn more about It's Monday! What Are You Reading? with a kidlit focus, jump over to Jen Vincent's blog, Teach Mentor Texts, and Kellee Moye's blog, Unleashing Readers.

Here's where Maddie and I journeyed:

I started an Oregon Battle of the Books (OBOB) journey...I'm working my way through grades 3-5 division books right now. 
Marty McGuire
I am mere pages from being finished...will likely finish it before sleeping tonight. :o)

Who Was Neil Armstrong?
Here's what I am reading next from the OBOB list.
 I have become a HUGE fan of audiobooks. Even when I'm not getting in as much time as I want buried in the pages of a book, my reader's soul is still being fed. Here's what I finished listening to:
LOVED this book...left a #heartprint. I'll be writing about it on my Slice of Life tomorrow.
Gregor the Overlander (Underland Chronicles, #1)
I'm not usually a fan of talking animals but this audiobook sucked me in BIG time. It's also an grades 3-5 OBOB book. 
 Right now I'm listening to:
The Tale of Despereaux
Another "animals that talk" book, but again, sucked in. Bonus: It's an OBOB pick & a Newbery medal book. Cha-ching!
I intend to get back in the swing of things with two activities that feed my writer's soul:

Looking forward to a group of teachers, media assistants, and media specialists from throughout my school district who get together one Thursday per month to talk books. Yippee! This Thursday is the first for the school year.
What are you reading and writing this week?
