5.13 It’s Monday! What are you reading? #GoneGirl

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.}


… A lot of stuff… Including student poetry books which I’m trying to finish up in the next couple days.
But no, no completed books. (see the next section for my current reading).
[Check back throughout the day for updates of my students’ reading.]
Since last Monday, my A Class has read:
9 books
My B Class has read:
16 books
My C Class has read:
6 books
I’m about 45% through this book and it’s heating up. I could hardly put it down after the Mother’s Day festivities ended. It’s fortunate that I’m even getting this blog together right now. The MC, Nick, is suddenly in serious trouble….

{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.}
These are the ARCs currently on my NetGalley TBR shelf:

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.]

[If anyone else is using SpinCam to show what your students are reading, I’d love to know about it and link to my Friday post. Thanks.]

  1. I (literally) just spent about an hour going through Facebook posts because I hadn’t looked at the site for over a week (what a waste of time, though irresistible).

    I just started reading “The Blue Hour” by T. Jefferson Parker. I’ve only made it about 5 pages in so far, but it appears to be just the right pace. According to the back cover it is a suspense novel set in the world of the Orange County (CA) Sherriff’s Department.

    I am grateful to (still) not be reading any textbooks so that I can focus all of my reading energy on novels. A few more weeks until summer classes begin @ Buff State.

    • Looking at Alpha Facebook updates is not a waste of time 😉.

      Gotta get in that reading before it’s too late. I’m looking forward to having MORE time for reading in a few weeks. I’m fascinated by GONE GIRL right now.

      Thanks, as always, for stopping by.
