Musing Monday

Musing Mondays is hosted by, asks you to muse about one of the following each week…
• Describe one of your reading habits.
• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it!
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!

My Musing
I just wanted to comment on how much I have enjoyed my summer off.  I read book after book after book and loved every minute of it.  I was able to post every couple of days, browse my other favorite book blogs, and keep up with all of the wonderful book news in the world.  Now, as I find myself beginning to get ready for the new school year, I am finding less and less time.  I know this is normal for this time of year.  I am organizing my classroom, getting lessons ready, and planning for the first few days.  I love my job but that doesn't lessen my frustration about not having enough time to read.   So, I have made a goal for myself.  I am going to do my best to set aside time to read every night in September and October.  I am really good at this once November hits and I get into the swing of things again but I don't want to fall behind.  My goal is 52 books in 52 weeks and I want to make it!

  1. Good luck on your goal! I had some time out as well while I was in between jobs and I did nothing but read. Now that I've been working again it's so hard to find time to read.
