Well, it's the last Monday of summer vacation. The teachers have work days on Thursday and Friday and then the kids return to school next Monday! And, just like the kids, I am trying to squeeze as much summer into this final week as possible, and for me, that means as much reading as possible!
What I'm reading today involves a little bit of a confession: I've never read Matilda the whole way through! I've read the first few chapters, and I watch the movie any time I find it on TV, but I've never read the whole book. I was down in my basement a few days ago trying to find books that will fulfill the remaining categories of the 2015 challenge I'm working on. One of those is "a book that was turned into a movie." This category has so many options, and I had picked up a few possibilities (Mary Poppins was a strong contender) and then I found my sad, beat up copy of Matilda. The poor book doesn't even have a front cover any more, which is probably why it was in the basement and not my classroom. Clearly, this is a book that needs reading!
Matilda is one of my all time favorite book-loving characters, and I am glad I am finally reading her story the whole way through!
So, what are you reading today?
