One of my favorite things about summer reading is hyping the free audiobooks from AudioBookSync. If you’re a teenager or you know teenagers who like audiobooks, AudioBookSync is definitely something to check out. They return on April 26. There are some awesome titles this summer, too. When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon Solo by … More AudioBookSync is Coming Back!
Text book adoption was exhausting. Between sifting through the core curriculum, the supplementary materials, and the intervention program options, if I don’t see curriculum for a few months, I’ll be happy. As I was putting together information for my department, one external company (who partners with one of the text book companies) caught my attention. … More Resource Spotlight: Listen Current
Here’s what’s interested me this week from around the Internet. Still not sure if this is going to be a thing. We’ll see what happens when school starts. In EduBlogging I was looking for great YouTube channels/videos for middle school Language Arts teachers. Perhaps I didn’t look in depth, but I couldn’t find a list. … More Dumbledore is Death

Earlier this week I came across a tweet or link on Facebook or something about The Hub (so probably Facebook) post on Books that Changed our Lives. If you’re interested, here’s the article from The Hub and the original article from CNN.
Going through my Digg feed on Sunday morning is like my equivalent of reading the newspaper. It’s like, flip open Digg, turn on this week’s BookRiot podcast (yes, I will probably plug them every week. Get used to it. Listening has become an integral part of my Sunday routine), and write this post. And I’m … More This Sunday in My Digg Feed
Okay, this one didn’t come out of my Digg feed, it came out of my pages feed on Facebook, but that doesn’t actually matter. So Mashable made a list (sooner or later you’ll get tired of my lists, but I love them so much) of 11 Young Adult Books Sure to Make You Cry. I’ve … More This Sunday in My Digg Feed
A Sunday morning perusal of my Digg feed is my equivalent of reading in the Sunday paper. Here’s what I found this week that I fancy sharing (and remembering about later). First, it’s October, and what’s October if not a month to get your scary on? So Flavorwire put together a list of the 50 … More This Sunday in My Digg Feed
Recently, and for no particular reason, I was thinking about the apps I use across platforms. And I wondered to myself, if someone asked me what one app I’d keep if I had to get rid of all of my apps, which one would it be? The answer came to me so quickly, I stopped … More Last App Standing
