2014 Summer’s PROMISE

MM 2014 summers promise

Each summer, I look forward to tackling the pile of books I’ve acquired and stacked throughout the teaching year– those I want to read but simply don’t have the time. I call it my Summer’s Promise. It invites me, each summer, to choose what I’m in the mood for and when. Inevitably, some in the pile have literary merit, books that make me think about life and appreciate writing styles, some are mindless and transportable, taking me to another place for a time, and each summer, one seems to stand out above the rest– one that lives long in my reading memory. I try to predict which ONE it will be, but I’m always pleasantly surprised.

  1. Unbroken is an amazing book. I love Laura Hillenbrand. And if you like it, check out her other book “Seabiscuit.” She is an outstanding nonfiction writer. I’m reading all of Jane Austen this summer; I’m 3/6 right now. And some other books of course.

Say Something! I read everything & promise to reply:
