Today is Day 21 of the Slice of Life Story Challenge.
In a book group, we respond to the text. We use words, colors and pictures. We read. We talk when physically together. We use google docs or padlet when apart. We laugh. We reread. We write.
Rinse and repeat.
Every year I participate in book groups/clubs. Sometimes I bite off more than I can chew. That was the summer that I was in seven different groups, teaching a graduate class, and attending two week long institutes out of state.
In reflection, that sounds totally crazy and overbooked. Seriously crazy. But my love of books, my desire to be better at responding to texts, and the need to accelerate my own learning led me to say yes to all the possibilities. (The inability to say “no” to book clubs will have to be a slice after March.)
We’ve presented together. We’ve laughed together. We’ve learned together.
Thank you, Julieanne Harmatz for writing about book purchases in a slice here this year, for adding to my own TBR stacks, and for adding joy to my life.
How do you add books to your reading list? What is your criteria? Who helps add to your list?
Thank you, Two Writing Teachers, for this daily forum during the month of March.
