Sunday Salon: June 23, 2019

Deb Nance at Readerbuzz has taken over running The Sunday Salon.

My life in books over the past two weeks: 
  • A to Z Reading--I have read books with titles for 21 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.
  • Big Book Challenge--I have read 2 books over 400 pages.
  • Diversity Reading Challenge--I have read 38 books.
  • Literary Escapes--I have read books set in 31 states so far, adding Michigan and Utah in the past two weeks. I have read in 41 countries so far, adding the Philippines in the past two weeks.
  • Motif Reading Challenge--The June motif is "Diversity your reading" (read a book by an author or about a character that is a different ethnicity or religion from me) and I am counting With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo for it.
  • Non-fiction--I have read 17 books so far.
  • YA Award Winners--I have read 10 of the 11 winners
Completed challenges:
  • My Own Books--I read 21 books off my shelves from March 15 to May 15, 2019.
My life outside books:
Work:
My professional learning week went well and I am now 10 days into teaching American Government in summer school. So far it's going well. But, it means I am grading much of the time.

Personal:

My big news is that I bought a Tesla Model 3! I love it. It feels so cool and techie. Now that I have bamboo floors with underfloor heating, on-demand water heating, solar panels, and an electric car I feel I am doing better about my carbon footprint and my impact on the environment.
