It’s 2010–can you believe it? Not so long ago we were learning to begin the year’s date with a 2 instead of a 1, and now we’re trying to figure out what to call the next decade. Wow.
Whether you are back in the classroom or enjoying your last l-o-n-g semester break, we hope your year is off to a refreshing start. Take some time to relax and enjoy before classes begin.
Maybe you even have time to read a non-required book just for fun?! I am working on Say You’re One of Them by Uwem Akpan. It’s an amazing collection of five narratives, each told from a child’s perspective and set in a different African country. I’m also beginning Mary Karr’s memoir, The Liars’ Club. It’s the first of three…the third, Lit, is getting all the current raves, but I wanted to start at the beginning.
What did you read/what are you planning to read over winter break? Please share with us. There’s still time, plus we can always look ahead to those spring breaks!
