As my first year of teaching came to a close, I realized how little time I had made for myself and my interests. The first week of summer was the first time I had read a book for fun in over a year. Growing up, I was a voracious reader, so this realization was disheartening. After my second week, and second book, came to a close, I realized that I could keep up the pace. There, my summer challenge was born; I will read a book a week.
Every Sunday, I will check in and tell you how successful (or unsuccessful) I was, as well as give you a quick review of the book I devoured. Later this week I will fill you in on my first three reads.
Have you set a challenge for yourself recently? Do you have a novel suggestion? Let me know in the comments!
I'm a Southern California teacher who loves the outdoors, weekend DIY projects, gardening, and baking.
