A quiet day of rain and cool weather means only one thing for me: reading! It is gloomy, damp and dreary, so the best thing in the world is to curl up on the sofa under a bright light with a great book. I am so lucky to be a high school librarian--it means that I have access to more books than I could EVER read. In the case of my high school, literary thousands.
Wait, it gets even better! The wonderful librarian who was there before me (25 years) has been volunteering her time to help me get the books in the correct Dewey order. Straightening shelves and putting books in order is one of her favorite jobs, so I can't feel very guilty about the amount of work she's done in the last two weeks. I am so very grateful to her for helping. I shouldn't even say helping, she is doing it almost completely alone as I've been busy with classes and teaching.

I've read a few of Lowry's books and have been very happy with each one. She's a versatile writer with several awards for some of her earlier books. I truly enjoy it when a student discovers her work as I know that he or she will be hooked!
Don't forget to vote for my blog on Picket Fence. We're climbing pretty high and I'm hoping to get 100 votes in just a few more days. In fact, I'm going to encourage everyone with a giveaway. I'm still deciding what the winner will receive. If you have suggestions of items from my Etsy shop, please leave a comment. I hope to have the giveaway post up by about Tuesday.
