Yeah! I finally finished it. Too many other things have been competing for my attention. I’ve come to realize that if I just read a book in small bits and pieces, I’m not giving myself enough time to get into it. This makes it difficult to finish. I’ve spoken with my students about this before. Here is another opportunity.  ¶This weekend I took some extended reading time and it made all the difference.  ¶Now… What is the deal with those thorn necklaces? Ooops—I’ve already said too much.
[Check back throughout the day for updates of my students’ reading.]

I have a digital ARC of this book that I started reading:
Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night with teaching thoughts racing through my head. They make it difficult to sleep. I like to have a book on my iPad/Kindle app that I can read in low-light mode right in bed.  ¶ I shared the trailer for this book (due out January 8, 2013) earlier in the year. Here it is again.
 
Still reading this aloud to my girls and thoroughly enjoying it. Edward/Jangles was just given to the little girl who is coughing in the shack.
These are the books my students are currently reading.
