On (some) Tuesdays I write about education and then post to the Two Writing Teacher blog. and then comment on at least three other blog posts Every day in March I will blog and post for the Two Writing Teacher challenge.
What books are on your nightstand?
Seven Drafts (craft book), Little Weirds by Jenny Slate, Writing Begins with the Breath (craft book), Dearly (poetry by Atwood), Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass(poetry) – I won’t list the ones in a stack on the floor…
What is the last great book you read?
I have been reading chunks of books…I am enjoying Gallant by VE Schwab. I read Melissa Febos’ Body Work. There was another book I recently read all the way through and enjoyed it but cannot remember what it was! Isn’t that always how it goes? Someone asks you and then you forget the title…
Are there any classic novels you only recently read for the first time?
There are quite a few. Several summers I have assigned myself a high school reading list that wasn’t mine. To Kill A Mockingbird was one. I will have to revisit my list.
What’s your favorite book no one else has heard of?
How do you organize your books?
Piles and randomly shoved into the bookcases. Sometimes I group them together by topic. Usually it is grouped together by when the last time I touched it! I have stacks of books I do not want to “lose”. I have a pile for a writing class I begin on Thursday on my desk so I won’t forget where they are!
The word organize should not be used for this category for me…did I mention the pile of books on the floor next to the bed above???
Describe your ideal reading experience.
Sitting in front of a fire either inside on a cold day or outside on a cool day. Overlooking water in a comfy chair or sitting on a bench. There is that feeling when you are into a book and it sparks something in you – I love that feeling and crave it more!
What do you plan to read next?
Poetry since I am self imposing a challenge for myself for the month of April! That is why I pulled out the two books of poetry yesterday.
