For the Love of Reading

Enjoying reading.

I’ve a whole stack of books-to-read.  I will share my thoughts as I read each one.  I hope you will share your reading, too.  What are you reading?  What books are on your to-be-read list?  What are your thoughts about those books? And don’t forget to comment on the books I’m reading…check out my thoughts.  Search to see if we read the same books and add your thoughts.  I love to discuss books.  I get the best suggestions for future reads that way.

Remember books are windows that allow you to see new things, doors that allow you to visit new places, adventures that allow you to experience new highs and lows, and vacations that allow you to escape.  In addition, non-fiction books provide you with opportunities to learn new things and study things that fascinate you.

Read, read, read, and share your reading.  Post a comment below to share your sharing.

Reading, writing, and talking about books in authentic ways…what more could a language arts teacher ask?  Only that it translates into a lifetime of individuals that love reading.  Please check back often for updates.  And thank you for joining us on this reading adventure.
