It’s been a big week!
I attended a SSCO Book Review event and came home with a great bag of books! I even have handed off ones that I have already read some to teacher friends for their classrooms.

Superintendent candidates are being interviewed for a January start (wait-didn’t we just get one in August. Oh yeah, she’s an interim!)

I’m working on my resume for a different educational position.

Handed off the following books:

Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick

I’m wracking my brain and this is all I’m coming up with? We even had a book fair and I went to the library! I had a blast helping at the Book Fair Family Night, trying to help kids and their parents find just the right book. I guess last week’s books and recent new releases are still not finished. Guess I should go read, rather than blog.

Welcome to In My Mailbox, a weekly meme where bloggers share the books that arrived in the mailbox, checked out from the library, borrowed from friends,  etc. in order to spread the word about new and fabulous books! Head on over to The Story Siren where Kristi has the roundup.

This is my first participation in this meme. I enjoy other bloggers’ IMM and thought it might help me keep blogging while I am so busy.
