IMWAYR: Falling Behind in the Snow

Winter is here, the snow has come to town, and I’m falling behind in my reading. You would think I had more time to read over the weekend, being stuck inside and all, but the weather headache took over and we had to shovel, too. Hopefully this week will be better.

NetGalley: I opened The Mysterious Disappearance of Aidan S.(as told to his brother) by David Levithan. I think students are going to love this one! 

Physical Books: In book mail this week, I received a gift from Erin Soderberg Downing, my Minnesota nerdy book friend and author, and I’m already half way through When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Peach Pie (due April 6, 2021 from Pixel + Ink). The Peaches family is headed out for the summer in a used food truck. Mom left a legacy with her invention (they’re millionaires!), and Dad wants to live out Mom’s dreams, traveling the country and selling pies. He doesn’t think about the one thing that maybe he should have before making the plans…no one in the family knows how to bake. This book is funny, heartwarming, and thoughtful. I don’t know WHAT I would do if I had a million dollars…(probably buy more books!) I haven’t been in the car — too much snow — so I’ll continue Cicely Tyson’s Just As I Am this week, maybe.

It’s MONDAY! What are YOU reading?
