5.6 It’s Monday! What are you reading?

A new week, a new batch of books–both books finished and being read. Today is…

Ring-the-Bell Monday & It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

{Sharing what books we’ve read in the past week & the titles we are currently reading.}


The Let them LOL 5k was on Saturday. Jack, Jacob, Noel, and Rosina (and their families) joined me in running to bring water to people in Sierra Leone, Africa. It was an awesome time. I was excited about it all weekend… and I still am.

Thanks, crew, for supporting LOL. I hope you wore your shirts (if you bought one) today and that you brought your water bottle.


{The six-book series is finally over. It was crazy and twisted. And strangely satisfying. So hard to describe what this series is about to those who don’t know. “There’s a bubble over the town and there’s almost a nuclear meltdown and the adults all disappear and kids realize they have mutant magical powers and there are good mutants and bad and then there’s this weird bad “thing” called the gaiphage that controls people’s thoughts and minds and then Little Pete realizes he has powers… ” See? Sheer craziness. And I loved it.}
[Check back throughout the day for updates of my students’ reading.]

9  books
My B Class has read:
23 books
My C Class has read:

Time for a grownup book. Recommended by my sister and wife:

{Josh and Jake just read this, and now Mrs. Martin is. And I’ve a mind to read it next—if they’ll let me.}

Before you see what the students are reading… what are you reading? Please leave a comment and let us know—and show the students that reading isn’t just a “school” thing.

(For every parent who leaves a comment with what you’re reading, I’ll give your child a BUSTED ticket…)

[Check back at the end of the day to see the cool spinning pictures of what my students are reading.]
