Rereads abound!

I have reached the stage of my life where my body literally rebels against me trying to work on Saturday. I had plans to finish grading Saturday, but instead I took not one, but two naps. Two! I was just exhausted.

It’s cool, though. I finished grading this afternoon and will write up an assignment sheet before I go to sleep tonight–unless I fall asleep first. We’ll see how it goes.


This week on the blog, I started the A to Z Challenge, so it has been pretty busy around here. I posted some things, basically:

I forgot the hashtag for some of my posts, but all of the lettered posts are part of the A to Z Challenge. My theme, btw, is gratitude.


I haven’t finished any books this week, but I did make the most excellent decision to start listening to the audiobook version of Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale. I’m feeling kind of reading slump-y, and I know rereads can help break the slump, so I figured this was a good way to go. I love this book and Dashti so much, and I was in desperate need of an audiobook to listen to, so here we are. I regret nothing.

I am also still making my way through The Inexplicable Logic of My Life by Benjamin Alire Sáenz. Good characters, complicated parent/child relationships. Both things I love, so I’m interested to see where this goes.

My reread of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix also continues, though it is much slower going since I’m reading it on my Kindle and don’t get as many opportunities to engage with it. The Sorting Hat’s song in this book, though. It’s something.


I wish I had some TV stuff to report, but my TiVo is tripping and none of my shows are recording. (I say this like I am not behind on them, but still. It’s the principle of the thing.)

Have a great week, everyone!

    I just discovered that The Inexplicable Logic of My Life is ready for me to pick up from my library. I so loved Aristotle and Dante that in spite of all the other books I must read, I suspect it will clamour to be read first.

    I almost bought The Inexplicable Logic of My Life at the bookstore today, but I couldn’t justify it in a month where I have already purchased upwards of 20 books (on extreme sale but still). I can’t wait to hear your final thoughts on it!
