We had conferences this week, which means today was a glorious Comp day.
What did I do? Run errands.
What did I want to do? Read a book. I just finished George by Alex Gino about a transgender 4th grader that was really quite good. It's middle grade fiction and the recurring Charlotte's Web references made me happy.
I'm also reading Turning 15 on the Road to Freedom by Lynda Blackmon Lowery as my "at school" book, The End of your Life Bookclub by Will Schwable is on my nightstand, and I'm trying to tackle Farenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury as well. This isn't unusual for me -- I usually am part-way through 5 or 6 different books, depending on what I want to read/enjoy. I do, however, hope this weekend's beautiful temperatures (in the 60s! In winter! in Iowa!) mean some time to read on the porch.

Kari teaches English I to 9th graders (!) and other electives in rural Iowa. Her husband is also an English teacher, and their friends have sworn to never help them move again because "even libraries don't have that many books."
