"East of the Sun" by Julia Gregson. This book is around 600 pages. I wanted to pick a book that was nice and long and would take me some time to read. So far I am really enjoying it!

I am re-reading Living History by Hillary Clinton. I started reading it when it came out years ago, put it down and never finished it, so now I'm starting over from the beginning.

Just finished paperback of Freedom Writers EXCELLENT READ. Anyone teaching, interested in our education system and our youth should read this! Although it is written in the 90s, a lot resonates today and as a future special education teacher who models after Erin Gruwell's nontraditional style I applaud this story. I look forward to reading the other books by Ms. Erin Gruwell ( a teacher guide and her journey through the Freedom Writers) as this book was the children stories.Emotional read, but very true so in a sense it wasn't sugarcoated like a lot of teachers try to pan the world out to be.

Now, I started an e-book on Kindle called Hidden: Betrayed, Exploited and Forgotten, How One Boy Overcame the Odds by Cathy Glass. It is a foster care story about a boy with a dark past who knows no one knows about as he was not registered in his country and experienced such mistreatment that only he knows about... I want to get more into this to see what this little boy's story is.

I am the kind of person who can't just read one book at a time. I am finishing up Hey Idiot: Chronicles of Human Stupidity by Leland Gregory. This is one of those books I had in middle school and found hilarious short entries in (sort of like texts from last night style) It is a quick read and is just sort of silly.

I am also finishing up Freedom Writers Diary in paperback by Erin Gruwell and the Freedom Writers (based on the movie of the same name) which is one of my favorite teaching films. As a future teacher I want to be as helpful to my students as Ms. Gruwell was to hers.


I use a website to help me organize my selections of books as well as provides me recommendations based on my interests and allows me to rate, answer trivia about and connect with book lovers online. I have over 300 books to read on there. I would one day like to read 1,000 books so, so far I am on my way. This holiday break I have a goal to read at least 3 books. LOVE time to snuggle with a good book and a movie!! Relaxing for sure!

Rely on form to bring about victory over the multitude. And then the multitude cannot understand. The elite all know the form by which I am victorious, But no one knows how I determine victory. Do not repeat the means of victory. But respond to the form from the inexhaustible.

Greywalker by Kat Richardson. I like those books, I hate that I found a book and didn't realize it was apart of a series and was lost in it. I still have to read the first two books, but my library hasn't gotten them in yet.

October Quotes

There is inspiration everywhere, find it and use it.

Keep trying, at least then you did more than nothing at all.

Finished reading Angels Fall, I enjoyed it even though it isn't my normal genre. I am now reading When will I stop hurting? Since it is so short, only 57 pages, I should easily finish it by 6 pm and be able to start another. I LOVE Sundays like this at work. emoticon

I loved the Hunger Games! Well the first two anyways. I kinda disliked the third book.

Right now I am reading "Gone" by Michael Grant. Lord this is a looong book and it's kind of boring for some reason.

Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character: it becomes your destiny.
