Book Blogger Hop is a meme hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer wherein a blogger asks a question and we answer it. Easy peasy. This week’s question comes from Elizabeth at Silver’s Reviews.
Is every day a reading day for you?
tl;dr response: Yes.
Long response: I read for a number of different purposes, and even if I don’t count the reading I do on social networking, I read every day.
By day, I am a reading specialist. I work with adolescent readers who, because of their test scores, have been enrolled in my class to work on their literacy skills. They’re a fun bunch of young people to work with. With them, I definitely read every day. Sometimes it’s reading a text and doing think alouds (modeling how I use reading strategies when I read), sometimes it’s modeling for them what it looks like to read independently (also, they tend to be interested in whatever it is I’m reading).
By evening, I’m a grad student studying literacy. Lots of reading there. Much of it I only have the faintest grasp at. But the more I read, the more it makes sense.
By all the time (ha!), I’m married to a reader. We spend quite a bit of time together reading, which I think is fantastic.
Do you read every day?
