Hello to anyone who might ever read this blog. My name is Angie and I am an avid reader. I truly love to read and can't remember a time in my life when I wasn't reading at least two books, I read every single day without fail- I can't go to sleep without reading. I have my favorites, but I will read any genre at all. I am not a book snob. I love bestsellers along with classic literature. I am an elementary school librarian, so I am focused on reading more quality children's literature, but I still read adult and young adult books as well.
I've had this blog for years, but I've deleted all of the old content so that I can begin fresh. I've realized recently that I am in a reading rut. I have my old standbys and I tend to read them over and over. My favorite novel is Pride and Prejudice, which is not exactly a recent bestseller. My students come to me for recommendations and I can only recommend books that I've read (which, quite honestly, are from my childhood).
So....with that said, I'm going to use this blog to document my journey towards more varied reading. I'm going to be reading a variety of books- classic literature (see my 100 greatest books list), classic children's literature (see the Newbery and Caldecott lists), professional books about reading, and current books (see my TBR pile). I welcome recommendations and hope to have discussions about books.
If anyone is reading this, I hope you'll leave me a comment and introduce yourself. Happy reading!
