A quick post today, because I’m only just getting home–a super long day!
Last week I only finished one book, Patrick Ness’s really really wonderful More Than This. I really enjoyed it, and I’m going to write more about Ness and this book tomorrow.
This week, I’m reading:
Teaching Book: Falling in Love with Close Reading.
I’m about 30 pages away from finishing this, and I’m really glad I picked it up. I’ve already implemented some of Lehman and Roberts’ ideas. Super practical and really helpful.
Young Adult: The Impossible Knife of Memory
I’m really excited to start this one. I’ve been waiting to read it for a while, and I’m really excited to tackle it this week.
Adult Book: Sharp Objects
OK, confession. I haven’t started this one yet. But I will. This week. I swear.
Bonus book: xo Orpheus
My dissertation is on two feminist retellings of myths, and when I saw this in Barnes and Noble today I couldn’t resist picking it up! It’s lots of short reinterpretations, so I’m probably going to be reading it for a while, but it’s definitely got a place on my night stand.
1. Here’s one of my blog posts this week! Two to go!
2. I haven’t started my training yet, but I don’t really have to until tomorrow. I have grad school tomorrow night, so I’ll be bringing my gym stuff with me to school in case I don’t get there in the morning.
3. I didn’t do my hair today. In fact I put it in a ponytail halfway through first period. It wasn’t a great appearance day.
4. This one was actually harder than I thought it would be. I found myself aimlessly checking email/twitter a lot today (partially because of the ALA award announcements and a slow internet connection). I have twenty minutes left, though, which I’ll spend answering comments from the past few days on the blog. I think I ended up with extra time today because I spent a few hours at my parents’ house, and I don’t tend to use the internet there.
Whew! It’s been a LONG day, but I’m glad I completed…two…of my nerdlution goals!
