Deb Nance at Readerbuzz is taking over The Sunday Salon and she has decided to make it a blog again rather than only a Facebook group. Yay! I am not doing FB these days so I love that I get to participate again.
My life in books over the past two weeks:
- The Eighth Sister by Robert Dugoni
- Visible Learning for Literacy (a book for work)
- Swing by Kwame Alexander
- Let's Go Swimming on Doomsday by Natalie C. Anderson
- The Island of Sea Women by Lisa See
- Internment by Samira Ahmed
- Shout by Laurie Halse Anderson
- A to Z Reading--I have read books with titles for 18 letters so far: A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, L, M, N, O, P, Q, R, S, T, U, V, and W.
- Diversity Reading Challenge--I have read 25 books.
- Literary Escapes--I have read books set in 21 states so far, adding Idaho in the past two weeks. I have read in 33 countries so far, adding Somalia and South Korea in the past two weeks.
- Motif Reading Challenge--The April motif is "Crack the Case" (Read a mystery, detective story, true crime, cozy mystery, or book involving a puzzle to solve) and I am counting The Eighth Sister by Robert Dugoni
- Non-fiction--I have read 11 books so far.
- YA Award Winners--I have read 8 of the winners
- My Own Books--This challenge runs from March 15 to May 15, 2019 and I will try to read 10 books off my TBR shelves. So far I have read 12 of them!
Actually, one of the books I read this week, Visible Learning for Literacy, turned out to be fantastic and is going to be the book I have my newly-formed social studies leadership team read this summer.
