It's Monday! What are you reading?

It's my first official day of SUMMER BREAK!

What better way to celebrate than to take the kiddos to the main public library for big stacks of books?!  The cool part? They were just as excited as I was to visit there and select books for the week.  We also had snacks in the coffee bar and perused some of our new books.  My kids proceeded to write their weekly book reports as well since they had both just finished reading a book the night before. (Yep, I'm pretty sure I'm raising them right! They both love to read and write!)

So, here are our stacks:   
I'll be reading the stack in the front.  The Captain Underpants (#*8) and Super Diaper Babies will be read to my son.  The Babymouse books (all the ones we've yet to read) will be read either to both kids or just to myself.  Mr. & Mrs. Bunny will be an independent read for me.  I can't remember who I "heard" talking about it on Twitter, but when I saw it in the new section at the library I grabbed it!

I also checked out 2 Adult books for the week.  They are truly for the week because they are 7 day loans!

I think both will be quick, enjoyable reads.

Last week, I finished several books:
My favorite was definitely CRYER'S CROSS.  Wow.  It was quite the page turner! Chomp was an ongoing read-aloud to my kiddos that we finally finished.  Good, but not great. Also loved Squish 3 & Marty McGuire Digs Worms! sent to me by the fabulous Mr. Sharp (because I won them!).  So all in all, a good week for reading (and working the SCHOLASTIC BOOKSALE!) I ended up with a box filled with books at the end of the week.  Good stuff.


  1. I've heard Calico Joe is good, but I think it was someone who really liked baseball. Marty McGuire Digs Worms should be good too. Thanks for the lists-very helpful. A student told me she liked Chomp, but also not as much as the others. Maybe too much the same? I found you on #teacherswrite. Will look for you!

  2. Wow! That's a lot of books! I am excited for when my kids are a bit older and can do some more extensive reading together and on their own. The day when I can go to the pool, let them go off and swim, and I can sit and read (in between swimming or hitting the lazy river or some of the water slides). I can't wait.

    I need to remember to grab the second in the Genius Files series. I loved the first and think the second will be a great summer read. So many awesome books!

  3. Yay for Babymouse! I need to find the Mr. and Mrs. Bunny. I "overheard" that conversation on twitter too! I liked Cryer's Cross as well. What a hard book to put down!
