The break down:
Friday-Four hours of reading and 30 minutes posting on twitter and checked out other blogs participating in the challenge.
Saturday-Five hours of reading and no internet time. I worried internet time would distract me from my real goal of reading books. I struggled on Saturday to get time to read. I originally thought I would read closer to eight hours but parenting a five-year old boy is time demanding. I also did not read as many pages as I thought I would. I suffered from many reading interruptions( the life of a parent to a five-year old boy).
Sunday-Three and half hours of reading and 30 minutes checking our other blogs. I woke up at 5 am to get some alone time to finish reading
Raising a Confident Reader
– Finished the last 25% of this book on my Kindle, I am guessing that is 40 pages of reading. I loved this book. I only wish I had read this book sooner.
Oh No She Didn’t: The Top 100 Style Mistakes Women Make and How to Avoid Them
208 pages of snarky Clinton to break up my more serious reading. This book was funny but I can also see if you took his comments seriously you might get your feelings hurt.
240 pages of incredible inspiration for all teachers. I hope she is successful with changing the teaching world to correct the wrongs of our test-centric society.
306 pages of walking in someone else’s shoes. Easy to read and very inspiring. I guess as a former science teacher and future librarian there could not be a better book to read.
If I had the challenge to do over I would start later so I could utilize my Sunday afternoon.
I am committing to this challenge. I have The Book Whisperer, Oh No She Didn’t, Raising Confident Readers, Getting Things Done, The Boy Who Harnessed The Wind, and Unbound on my to be read list.
Since I started reading kid lit blogs in 2006 I have been considering starting my own blog. To participate in the challenge I must have a blog so I am finally taking the leap. Hopefully, this will be a great beginning to my adventures in blogging.
