We're one-tenth of the way through the school term (no, it wasn't me who counted!) and I've done enough reading to bring on an occasional bout of eye-twitching Of course, that's a lot of textbook and worksheet reading and not necessarily much leisurely coffee-and-a-novel reading, but I'm glad my job supports my favorite habit in any way at all.
And every day after noon break, I read aloud to my students for twenty to thirty minutes, my absolute favorite part of the day. This year we read The Bronze Bow by Elizabeth George Speare first, and we're almost finished with The Golden Goblet by Eloise Jarvis McGraw. Next, we might take a break from my favorite historical fiction and try a Three Investigators mystery, or some other light read.
As for writing...I haven't been doing much since school started, but I have a new project in the works that I'll share about soon.
In other bookish news, both of my books are now available at the Boji Stone Cafe and Bookstore in Chillicothe, Missouri, and at the Sunrise Catfish Farm giftshop in DeRidder, Louisiana.
October is my favorite month, so I wish you all a happy one!
