Not only is it Monday (for a few more hours), it's also Spring Break, so my stack is toweringly optimistic.
Right before break, I finished listening to Code Name Verity. It was all kinds of brilliant, so I'm listening to Rose Under Firenext.
Maxine Kumin's final book And Short the Season: Poemscame. I'll savor it and make it last.
Franki loaned me Nightingale's Nestand I have Shannon Hale's Dangerousfrom the library.
I've hoarded a few books I ordered for the classroom library until I can read them:
Bad Kitty Drawn to Trouble
Nathan Hale's Hazardous Tales: Big Bad Ironclad!
Nathan Hale's Hazardous Tales: Donner Dinner Party
Nathan Hale's Hazardous Tales: One Dead Spy
I think the final Lunch Lady (Lunch Lady and the Schoolwide Scuffle) is back on the shelf in my classroom -- I released it into the wild before I read it, so I may sneak back into school and read it while I can.
I have about twelve professional books stockpiled, but I'm not kidding myself. I hope to read:
Celebrating Writers: From Possibilities to Publication
Falling in Love with Close Reading: Lessons for Analyzing Texts--and Life
Assessment in Perspective: Focusing on the Readers Behind the Numbers
Rethinking Intervention: Supporting Struggling Readers and Writers in Grades 3-6 Classrooms
Looks like some good reading weather the next few days! (...making lemonade, in case you were wondering...)
