Green Books

Booking Mama's post from today turned me on to a new concept and I have to share it with everyone!  It kind of amazes me how things can almost pass you by.  I'd never heard of Eco-Libros before but now I'm ready to plant trees for every book I read.  I wish I would have known about their challenge previously but I will find a way to particpate anyway. 

I spent time at my public library today and found several books with the help of Tina, who happened to be there with her youngest.  I "found" Jodi Piccoult's new-ish Handle with care, which I have not read yet.  Now I have to read it in 7 days!!  I really have to start The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society by Annie Barrows and Mary Anne Schaffer because my book club meets in two weeks and I haven't started.  I also have to finish Year of the dog (tonight) for tomorrow's 5th grade book club.  Crazy-Yes!!
Other books I found at library:
The shadow speaker by Nnedi Okorafor-Mbachu (for teen and me to read)
Looking for alaska by John Green (I want my teenager to read it when he finishes Liar)
The bite of the mango by Mariatu Kamara (for teen, husband and myself to read-high hopes)
Satchel; The life and times of an american legend by Larry Tye (for husband-he loves baseball history)
The year we disappeared; a father~daughter memoir by Cylin Busby and John Busby(for teen and me to read)
My goal was to finish reading Journey of Dreams by Marge Pellegrino but so much got in the way this weekend.  (Like my mom showing up last night by surprise:)
I need to finish lesson plans for this week, my observation MAJOR lesson plan to be handed in to my principal tomorrow and make an Asian dessert for 5th grade book club tomorrow! 
What the heck was I even doing picking out books at the library or hanging around on the computer!!  I know most of you can relate to this whirlwind schedule!  Tell me what your crazy drama looks like??

Be peaceful-
