And so it begins!
Last week I made known that I am a “read only inside my comfort zone” kind of reader. As I’ve brainstormed this week to determine my reading plan, I realized this: what better of an opportunity am I going to find to broaden myself as a reader? I plan to read back through my classmates’ blogs and get book ideas from them. Any suggestions are welcome! I am beginning to think that if I read a little bit of everything in this class, when it comes to reading books for myself, I may be more apt to read out of my comfort zone.
The second part of my reading plan is to complete the 100 Top Children’s Novels. To be perfectly honest, I am actually overly excited to accomplish this. I have always been partial to novels and expanding my repertoire of literature will help me when I do become a teacher. Knowing the books that my students are reading will not just benefit me, but also them.
The third and final part of my reading plan is to become much better at putting books on Goodreads. I love that app but I have a hard time remembering to put a book on it. I generally read the book first and then put it on there, but I don’t always remember by the end of the book.
So, here I go. I have listed my intentions and I am putting them to work.
