Thanks j.kaye for this wonderful meme - it's a great way to start off the week and refocus.
It's not actually Monday in Hawaii yet, but I've been traveling for 18 hours to get home to Hawaii from Philly today so I know that it's now 2 am in Philly, so most of the world is on Monday or pretty close to it. We've got about 2 hours left of Sunday.
Read this week:
The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith - my middle school students have a book club on the ning and this month's theme is mystery, so I read this. (It's not really a mystery)
The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian by Sherman Alexie (listened to it on one of the 9 hour flights - Houston to Honolulu?)
? Not sure - I picked up a lot of books from NCTE but I had them shipped to Hawaii so I won't get them until next week. After standing in line for author signatures, there's a bunch of them I totally want to read, including Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld who did a 9 minute book talk and showed us his large portfolio of pictures from his new series. Simon Pulse, the publishers wouldn't even sell it at a discount at the exhibition hall, but I still bought it.
Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld
The Secret Story of Sonia Rodriguez by Alan Sitomer (three time teacher of the year - he still teaches full time and writes books - I need juggling tips from him)
We Were Here by Matt dela Pena
