Once Upon A Read A Thon Day One – Update

11 Jul



Reading time: approximately 5 hours total hours.

Book: The Autobiography of Mrs. Tom Thumb by Melanie Benjamin

Pages read: 68 pages  total (No new pages read on this book since my last update. I put this book aside for a while.)

Book: The Hot List by Tracy Marchini

Pages read – 256 (completed the book)

This morning I received a notice on one of my library list servs that author was offering a free download for this book on Smashwords for children’s and YA librarians.  I had read a brief review of the book on another blog and had it on my Amazon wish list.  So of course, I jumped at the chance to get a free e-copy. I’m glad I did (check back later for a full review). It is one that I definitely want to purchase for my school library. I think my 5th graders will enjoy it, but I can also see potential for a connection with character education lessons.

I think I will now take a short break from reading with  my eyes as I take a walk to the library to return some books and pick up more (you don’t think I can walk into a library and leave without at least on book, do you?) Never fear, I may not be READING a book during this time, but I always listen to a book on Playaway when I’m walking.
