It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 11/18/13

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.

I haven't been so good lately about tracking the book journeys that I Maddie and I are on. I've had a lot on my plate between coursework and work so I'm toying with the idea of a reading journal for us as well as book pics that I post on Twitter of what she is choosing and what I am choosing for our nightly bedtime reads. Stay tuned next week for double the fun with the return of book pics here.

This last week was not a good independent reading week for me. However, I bought one of Paul Tough's books after listening to him at the OSBA (Oregon School Boards Association) Conference I was required to attend as part of my course.
Here's where I plan to travel this week:

How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity, and the Hidden Power of Character
Clementine (Clementine, #1)
My favorite journey each month with the #SharpSchu Book Club on Twitter features:

The Story of Fish and SnailBird & Squirrel on the Run
Here's where I was and where I plan on going with audiobooks:

Shipwreck (Island, #1)
Finished this Saturday
Henry Huggins
Started this on Sunday

  1. Bird and Squirrel on the Run looks like something both of my kids would love! I'm sure my daughter would like The Story of Fish and Snail too. I may have to check out this #SharpSchu Book Club on Twitter!
