There are a couple of events in the blogosphere coming up that I'm excited about participating in. The first in Dewey's 24-hour Read-a-thon on April 26. I haven't had a chance to participate in any 24 hour read-a-thons yet, and I know this is a great one to start with. I also know that I'm not going to get anywhere close to actually reading for 24 hours straight. My students would not be very happy with me on Monday morning if I didn't sleep at all Saturday night. So my participation will be limited, but I'll do the best I can!
The second event I'm excited about is Armchair BEA, coming up on May 26-31. I'm still fairly new to the book blogging world, so last year at this time, I didn't have my blog up and running yet. Honestly, I hadn't even heard of BEA until last year (gasp!). I would LOVE to actually go to BEA in New York some year, but that rather unlikely, since it always seems to be scheduled during the penultimate week of the school year. Not a great time for a teacher to skip out. . . But this year, I will be able to participate in Armchair BEA. I'm looking forward to all of that fun and crazy bookishness!
My name is Julie, and I own a lot of books. As in, they are stacked on the floor because I've run out of room on the shelves. And those shelves? There are so many books on them that they smile -- not sag; smile. This blog will cover book reviews and all manner of other bookish things.
