One thing that my students are doing, along with several other teachers in my department, is a 20 Book Challenge to end the school year. For this final Semester (two terms), we've asked the students to participate in a challenge to read 10 books each term. They do have a variety of categories/genres to choose from, but they pretty much get to choose what they would like to read. In short, we just want them to READ. The fun part for me is that I'm doing it with them so we can all share what we're reading. That has really helped me get moving on my own 100 Book Challenge for the year!
Since I knocked out non-fiction this past week with The Candy Bomber, I'm tackling poetry this week in Lisa Schroeder's I Heart You, You Haunt Me, and what I'm guessing is fantasy in Brodi Ashton's Everneath. I'm excited to read both of these books, but especially Brodi Ashton's since I've met her a time or two at our book blogger get-togethers. She has a wicked sense of humor and has been talking about her writing for quite awhile, so I'm eager to check it out!
