I’m supposed to be reading for book group:

The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America’s Great Migration
 by Isabel Wilkerson

It’s interesting, but I don’t love non-fiction and it’s 640 pages long! Good God!


I’m actually reading:

The Madness Underneath (The Shades of London book 2) by Maureen Johnson–had to buy it on my Kindle the day it came out


PS-I don’t love the new covers for the series


I’m wanting to read:

Book Love by Penny Kittle 


but it’s not on the Kindle and getting a book here is tough!

One half of knowing what you want

is knowing what you must give up

before you get it.

Over at my new blog

Come check it out. You’ll ever enjoy reading along with my adventure or think that I’ve lost my mind by giving up all things familiar for the next several years. You decide.

I’m still going to post BestBook posts that I think belong here, but my daily posting can be found over there.

If you haven’t had a chance to read Donalyn Miller’s column at Education Week, it is well worth a look! She’s gathered up several recommendations for ‘Books that Build Community’, something educators the world over are working on this first month of school.
