Books and other musings

Do you use a Nook or Kindle? I love my Nook, but I still love the feel of a real book. I was my usual self when my husband and I were getting ready to head out of town for a few days. I had a book bag full of books and still carried some in my arms as I went out to the car. I've always been like that, even as a little girl. I'm more interested in what books to take than what clothes I'll need.

My guilty pleasure on the trip was a Harlan Coben mystery called "Missing You." It was good. A page-turner.... which is probably why I sat by the pool all day yesterday, so I could finish it. I also took a book that contained tons of articles about teaching gifted students (I always feel like I should be doing more for those kids) and one on classical education. I haven't finished the last two books yet but can't wait to really dig in to see what all they have to tell me.

Monday means good-bye Spring Break - hello kiddos - and hello CRCT. We begin testing on Thursday and will continue into the next week. Big sigh when that's over and done with.

Have a great weekend!

I use the Kindle app on my iPad.
Like you, I do love the feel of a book in my hands, but you just cannot beat the portability of a tablet, if you want to travel with a variety of books.

Wishing you the best with the testing!

Have a great weekend.

I do not have a Nook or a Kindle or any other reading device.
Which reminds me, I need to read more and get lost in that wonderful world.
Love your cards Roban, hope they are selling my friend.
Big heart hugs
