Checking in with my weekly “What Are You Reading?” Wednesday post.
What Are You Reading?
I’m still on Akata Witch. I’ve slowed down this week because it’s a busy time at work. I’m trying to cram in the last half of Anne Lamott’s Bird by Bird before all of our books are due back.
What did you recently finish?
Honestly? Nothing. Like I said: slow week.
However, I’ve read David Weisner’s The Three Pigs to all of my classes and it’s more fun every time. What an absolute charmer of a book, I can’t get over how much I love it. My favorite thing to do is get the kids reciting the parts of the story they know (“Little pig, little pig, let me come in!”) because they’re even more amazed when we get to the weird stuff. Everything about this book is great. I think my favorite part might be when the pig looks out at the reader; I like to get my students to wave and say, “hi, pig!”
What do you think you’ll read next?
I’m going to do The Artist’s Way with an online community this summer, starting this week, and I’ll be reading that a chapter at a time as we work through the program. I’m not sure what fiction I’ll pick up next; I have a TBR list about as long as my arm, but the vacation light at the end of the school year tunnel seems so far away that sometimes I despair of ever having enough time to read them all…
