This weekend my mom came down to buy a new car. Talk about stress. I'll be in the market for a new car soon as well, but for now, I'll enjoy the car I already own.
Work is great. I'm weighed down with over 200 papers, book reports, and assignments, but I've learned that you have to just pick away at them and not get too overwhelmed along the way. My AP students are going to start in on Wuthering Heights this coming week. I get that the Bronte's are standards in literature, but I've never been a huge fan of Wuthering Heights or Jane Eyre. That's okay though, since I have a direction I'm taking that includes comparing and contrasting it toMary Shelley's Frankenstein. In that respect, I'm excited. We'll see what the students think!
I'm also finishing up Crossed by Ally Condie. Talk about an exciting ARC! Hopefully I get a second today to finish it (or maybe I should just make the time to finish it).
Although I haven't read as much as I usually do, I'm sure having fun trying. Besides, with the iPad I feel like I have a million options and ways of reading anything I can get my hands on!
What about you? What great bookish acquisition have you made this past week or weekend?
