It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 1/31/22 #imwayr

Happy Monday! If this is your first visit to my blog, welcome! I regularly participate in a weekly #IMWAYR meme. Kellee Moye of Unleashing Readers and Jen Vincent of Teach Mentor Texts decided to give Kathryn’s (at Book Date) “It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?” meme a kidlit focus, reviewing books in children’s literature (picture books, chapter books, middle … Continue reading It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 1/31/22 #imwayr

Happy Monday morning and Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day! It's been an unusual past week for our family for two reasons: First, we tested positive for Covid and had to stay in quarantine for the week. Hubby and I were both vaccinated, so after the first 24 hours of fever, headache, and body aches, … Continue reading It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 1/17/2022 #imwayr

Good Monday morning! I'm happy to say I met my two reading goals for 2021. I completed my #MustReadin2021 list, finishing all 49 books that I considered mandatory. And I also met my yearly goal of reading 365+ books. Whew! I've let my Goodreads account go in recent months, so there was a lot lot … Continue reading It’s Monday!

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 12/27/2021 #imwayr

Last Monday, I quickly posted my #imwayr entry late, late Sunday evening. Then I walked away from my computer almost the entire week to bake, watch movies, finish wrapping presents, and to send out the last of our local cards (mostly just hand-delivered cards since they're neighbors and I wanted to make sure they made … Continue reading It’s Monday!

I've sure missed this community the last two weeks. It seemed Monday was coming 'round far too quickly each week with company in town and our holiday preparations, so I just put it off while enjoying family. We had a wonderful time over Thanksgiving with my mom having flown in with my 11-year-old niece, from … Continue reading It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 12/13/2021 #imwayr

I'm still on book cover sharing for the time being. But first... in school library news last week, I was surprised to find this article in my Facebook feed this week. The surprise came from the fact that the two Texas school districts mentioned are ones with which I have an intimate history. I attended … Continue reading It’s Monday!

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 11/8/2021 #imwayr

We're already entering the crazy season of busy, busy, busy! It seems to come earlier and earlier, every year. The combination of trick-or-treating candy clean-up on top of yet another big birthday has left me very short on reading/blogging time, this week. My son turned 11, so his celebrations included a trip to WaTiki Waterpark … Continue reading It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 11/8/2021 #imwayr

I hope everyone had a Happy Halloween, yesterday! The kids actually ended up attending four events this week: a church carnival, our public library Halloween party, a citywide Trunk or Treat event downtown, and then Halloween. I think my youngest had four costumes, total. 😂  We were under a winter weather advisory for Sunday, but … Continue reading It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 11/1/2021 #imwayr
