Words In – Summer Reading Edition

I always think that I’ll have so much more time to read every summer than I do. My days quickly fill with trips to the pool, summer professional development workshops, reading for work and getting my kids snacks. Constant snacks. Nonetheless, I managed to read too. I also managed to read a few things that […]

Reading Harry Potter for the First Time

Before this summer, I had never read Harry Potter. I’m a book lover. A story lover. An avid reader. But for the past 19 years, when someone has asked me what I thought of Harry or what house I’d be in, I’d have to admit that I had never cracked open a Harry Potter book. […]

Summer Reading for 2nd Graders – What Nora’s Reading

The books are stacked high next to her bed these days. And when it’s quiet in the house in the few weeks we have at home together a fair guess is that she’s in her room reading. She read in the car for hours last week on our road trip – making me jealous since […]

Words In: What I’m Reading

I’ve been absent from here for a few weeks now. Long enough that I’m starting to feel uneasy about it. Uneasy with the lack of stories I’ve been slowing to take stock of, the absence of words aching to find their way out. In a few short days it will be summer. I won’t call […]

I’m Reading

I wrote a few weeks ago how I want to read more this year. How I want to put my phone down and stop playing silly addictive games and pick up a book instead. I want to make my way through this list of Mock Printz Young Adult Award Winners. I don’t think I can […]

I Want To Read More

I’ve written before about how I used to be a voracious reader, how I used to read more than write. Last year I read more than I have since the craziness of two kids set in, but it still wasn’t as much as I’d like. Monday morning I watched twitter explode as the Mock Printz […]

Great Books For Kids Who Love Dinosaurs

I haven’t written a book post in a while.  I’m not sure why, exactly, except for they take a long time to write – with all the linking and all. But they are also the ones that get read and shared the most, so… Lately Miles has been obsessed with all books dinosaur. He doesn’t […]

“A Wish Is A Powerful Thing”

I saw it online somewhere – a flash of the cover coming across my screen. It used to be one of my favorites. Stories bring me back to places and times, to people and ideas. Stories are the anchors of my memory. I’m not sure when I first read this one, though I’m sure it […]

Book Shelf Stories

Rooms filled with books feel the most like home to me. Many of my books are marked up, filled with sticky notes and marginal notes and underlined phrases. They tell the story of who I was and what I was thinking when I read it. Ken finished the new shelves for our front room yesterday. […]

Awesome Chapter Books For Beginning Readers

Summer is for reading. Sure it’s for the beach or the pool and a break from school and ice cream and lemonade, but really, to me summer just means time to read. Time  I can’t come by as much as I’d like during the school year. Summers in my childhood meant books. Stacks of books. […]
