Five books

I am juggling so many different books right now especially when I get tied up (so easily) in this online world of blogging and commenting!! I am reading The Devil's Arithmetic by Jane Yolen for a 5th grade blogging book club I am working with at school and reading The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan with another 5th grade book club-both great books and very, very different. I am, also reading The Magician by Michael Scott, a follow-up to his book The Alchemyst. My son and I have read this series together and we love this sequel as much as the first one. I am trying to read The World is flat by Thomas Friedman because I'm interested in his new book and thought I should look at this one first and Little Heathens byMildred Armstrong Kadish, an Iowa farm story.
Wow...I should shut off the computer.

That's a lot of books to juggle! I tend to read one book, all the way through, usually in an evening. I treat them like watching a movie - one shot.

Not all the time, but a lot of the time.

I get to read at school is part of the bonus. My book club books I read at lunch time for my own private quiet time in the library-the teacher's lounge is over-rated. I read for about one hour before going to bed and after tucking children into bed. I try to be asleep around 10 at night because otherwise I can't wake up and be in a good mood at school.
