It's Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme began by Sheila at Book Journeys as a way to share what you read and/or reviewed the previous week and what is in store for the upcoming week. It's also a great chance to see what others are reading. I first learned about it from Jen at Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee and Ricki of Unleashing Readers and have become a regular linked up blog. Thanks #PLN
OH, the agony I experienced this morning when I suddenly had to cover a "running a little bit late" teacher's classroom causing me to miss the ALA Youth Media Awards annoucements which led up to long minutes of frustration of tyring to find out the news asap. Thanks to Twitter, I was able to quickly see Vines and photos shared by fellow book lovers. Thanks all.

Jinx by Sage Blackwood
This morning I became dangerously behind schedule because I thought I might spare a few minutes to finishing reading the fabulous magical book Jinx. Love it, Love it, Love it! Need bookmarks for my students!
I also re-read a mess of Texas Bluebonnet Award nominees in preparation of our upcoming Bluebonnet Breakfast Celebration. I create a trivia contest, games, and crafts. It is so much fun.
