    So many interesting books - thanks for the info friends!

    Negin, I loved your New Church Ladies review and the quote you selected. In fact, I probably liked the review more than I would like the actual book. I think that I gleaned what I need to know just from your summary! You and I have discussed these topics, and we are definitely in agreement.

    I have not started a new book, and have mostly been reading my classroom management book and looking at teacher blogs for ideas as I preplan and frontload my next school year. I am next in line for a fiction book from the library, so I hesitate to start something else since that will automatically download soon.

    Kindle book on sale today. Not sure if I would like it or not. Fantasy is not usually my thing.

So I always feel I need to justify my numbers. I do not read all day but I do get up extremely early to read before the kids wake up, plus I don't watch tv so my evenings are usually spent with books.
    Okay, I will not defend my numbers any more.
    Julia, NEVER feel that you have to defend your reading. I feel like reading is a noble pursuit. Too often these days, people take the easy way of spending their extra time. Facebook, Twitter, Netflixing for hours...I'm so impressed that you read so many books last week. Keep on turning those pages!!! Sometimes I think that appearing/being busy is like a badge of courage for some people. It's a way of defining oneself, one's worth. Perhaps that is why the busiest people always have time to fit just...one more thing. Sending a hug and a HIGH FIVE!!!
