Two Writing Teachers
Many of my students (and lots of adults I've met) have lots of excuses for not reading.
I was on FIRE this summer, burning through lots of books and adding them on Goodreads. In the past two weeks, I've found myself in a reading slump.
Here's my current list of excuses.
I haven't been reading because....
Every time I try to download an ebook from the library, I don't finish the process, exit my cart and lose all my books.
It gets dark at 5:00 now. After coming home and waving the dinner wand, I reallllly don't want to go out again.
I've read nearly all the books on my shelf. If I haven't read them, those books aren't interesting to me.
I haven't had time to read my usual book-loving blogs to add new titles to Goodreads.
I haven't been to the library in a MONTH!
(My husband joked that he expected them to call me and check that I was okay.)
I've been working hard on keeping my classroom papers in order. When I look up at the clock, there's no time left to read.
I'm looking for a new book, author or genre to get me excited.
I've run out of excuses. Time to find something to read....and quick!
