2018 Reading Resolutions
Actually update my Goodreads. According to Goodreads I read one book in 2017. I read one book on January 1st of 2017, so I know that isn’t accurate. The fault is all mine, but truthfully I find the interface a bit cumbersome. I didn't always, but I've evolved and perhaps Goodreads hasn't kept up, or I'm just making excuses - let's settle on it being a little bit of both. I suppose it was just easier when I spent my mornings and afternoons as Classroom Mom instead of Classroom Teacher.
Post to this blog at least twice a month during the school year and twice a week during the long, lovely summer. In case you were wondering, this one counts.
Read more middle grade. I love middle grade, but I feel like it took a backseat to YA this year. The Parker Inheritance, a middle grade mystery, by Varian Johnson will be my first read of 2018, and I’m excited. Mysteries were my first reading love – Nancy and Trixie, Cam and Encyclopedia, Claudia and Jamie, Sherlock and Hercule. After The Parker Inheritance comes another middle grade novel, You Go First by Erin Entrada Kelly.
Fully embrace Audible. Right now I mostly use Audible to listen to books I’ve already read, to reread and reread again the books I teach, or in the classroom with my students, but I want to just listen to a book and be okay with never turning a page or flicking my finger across a touchscreen. I fully embraced ebooks, so I know I can do this.
Try to forgive Annabeth Chase for being a Mary Sue. I won’t, but everyone needs at least one impossible resolution.
