It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 1/26/15

26 Jan

I had a busy week of reading, specifically this weekend as my doctor put me on “vocal rest” to hopefully heal my month-long battle with laryngitis.  Because I couldn’t talk all weekend, I spent the majority of my time reading, which was a great way to keep up with my first reading challenge of the year – reading all the books on the New York Public Library’s 100 Titles for Reading and Sharing 2014.

Over the weekend I read, a lot of non-fiction/informational texts with a few folk/fairy tales thrown in for good measure.  I really have to say that informational text these days is so much more interesting with primary sources, photographs, and the accessible reading style, it’s much more like reading a story than a “report.”
