Every school year, my reading list grows exponentially. I started out with maybe ten books and I now am standing at about, oh, five hundred-thousand-trillion. I do not have enough time to read the books I want to read! I started the year by rewarding myself for finishing all my homework by reading a book I wanted to read. Now, my homework is starting to pile up too much for me to even do that.
I feel like this little guy when I read my Microsoft Word Reading List document:
I wonder if my students will ever feel like they want to read the books they want to? Well, if they are anything like me, then yes, they will. I do not want to be the one to hold them back from discovering how great reading can be when no one is making you. I want them to have the connection with books that I do. Because, in the summer, I am reading voraciously.
I Need That Library!!! ^
And I know that even when I do have time to read, I will still keep adding more and more books to my reading list. People need to stop writing books!! Take a break! 🙂
Yup. That pretty much sums up my life in a nutshell.
Oh, and I am adding this little Peanuts cartoon mainly because I work at a library and the cartoon makes me giggle.
