Thankfully Reading Weekend Wrap-up

What fun I had!  I'm sad to see that this weekend is over.  I got the opportunity to meet new {to me} book bloggers and read about great books.  The Thankfully Reading Weekend expanded my blogger community and made me feel welcomed.  I am extremely thankful for that.

I didn't get a ton of reading done.. I had a busy weekend with family & friends who were in town for the holiday, as well as finishing up some craft projects for Christmas and writing my lesson plans & sub plans for the coming week.  However, I did get some reading done!

I finished Flower Children by Maxine Swann, Firegirl by Tony Abbott and Ways to Live Forever by Sally Nicholls.  I also started Dark Places by Gillian Flynn.  Flower Children, Firegirl and Dark Places were on my list to complete this weekend, along with Voluntary Madness which I opted not to read this weekend and instead fill in with Ways To Live Forever, a pre-read for my classroom library.  As far as review posts go, I will hopefully get to them later this week after my conference.

I'm not entirely happy with my reading this weekend, but when I look at the big picture and see the 4 gifts I crafted & wrapped, visits I had, and Christmas cards I finished... I am happy and thankful for this great weekend!
I'm so very glad to have met all of the other participants and hope to continue to frequent your blogs and keep mine up to date as well.  Hope everyone else had a fun weekend!

write to be understood, speak to be heard, read to grow
