Being retired means I don't schedule much except my singing sessions. Other than that, whenever I feel like it I read, I quilt, go for walks and occasionally clean the house. (The latter doesn't happen very often.)
Carrie's twitter reminder of this update seems like ages ago. I thought I had lots of time. Then this morning a reminder message popped up on my device.
Carrie Gelson at There's a Book For That hosts #MustReadIn2017. Participants create lists of books they want to read in that year, and every so often we check in and blog about our progress.
This is an important book that shows us what it's like to be an new immigrant, as well as a student with some cognitive challenges. It wasn't easy to read all the bullying scenes, especially the ones in the classroom with the teacher right there. I suspect this book would make a good classroom read aloud as it is filled with issues that many students will connect to.
I do have other reading goals, and I am making better progress on those, so my reading life isn't a total failure!
