My classroom is not a quiet, orderly place.
Students are constantly moving, thinking, talking, reading and writing.
I do my best to help my students find success.

Winter Break #bookaday Reading!

HOORAY!  It's winter break for three of us at my house! HOORAY!  (My husband has to work, so I promise to give him lots of relaxation time when he is home!)

If you didn't already know, I love to read.  I have since I was four years old.  My parents read to my brother and I, we had books on records (yes, I'm a child of the 70s) and I had the most important accessory a reader can't live without....a public library card.

So, now that our winter break has started, in between all the holiday and travel preparations, I'm again participating in Donalyn Miller's (author of The Book Whisperer)  #bookaday challenge.  (See her blog post here!)  As I finish a book, I tweet it on Twitter, using the #bookaday hashtag.  If you ever need book recommendations, this is a hashtag to search!

I'm lucky to have two teenage daughters who help around the house and keep busy with friends (in person and online) and activities.  Why am I lucky?  I get to READ, a lot, all throughout the break.  YES!

Those of us on Twitter who L.O.V.E. to read and share our love of books are all members of the Nerdy Book Club.  I'm truly excited to be part of such a well-read, book-loving crowd.  Sure, we call ourselves nerdy, but we know books and we're proud of it!

I'm really great at keeping track of the books I've read on Goodreads, but I'm trying to add some review info, too.  My goal this year is to read LOTS of books over winter break.  I'm on book number 3, and it's day 4 of vacation.  I do have two flights scheduled during break, so that will give me some decent reading time, too!

Now it's time to finish writing and get READING!  Join us in the #bookaday challenge and read as much as you can!
