Today ends Booktubeathon. I started out strong, reading (and listening) more than I usually do. But, as I predicted, around mid-week, when I started back up at school again, my reading dropped off.

Today I enlisted help from my wife to complete the book spine poetry challenge. I enjoy doing things with her, and making videos is no exception.

So I was in the comments of one of my book haul videos recently talking about how I have so many stories about my students and reading that I missed doing Sunday Bookstacks so I could brag on them a bit. I don’t know if I’m really going to have the time to make this … More Why Overdrive Has Been Good for Building Relationships

My cousin and I started reading together when he was ten or so, and I was in the early years of my teaching career. There’s 15 years between the two of us.
