IMWAYR: Continued…Happy Holiday Weekend

4 Comments

Reading…continued…I will finish up the graphic novels from last week — Superman Smashes the Klan, The Oracle Code, and Doodleville — and add a new one to this week’s list, Twins (by Varian Johnson and Shannon Wright). I’m so happy my indie bookstore, Brain Lair Books, had a copy for me.

Then I will start a new adventure. It will take me a while, but I’m up for the challenge. Barack Obama’s story, A Promised Land. Seven hundred, six pages plus a 45-page index. My goal is to have it finished by December 31st.

It’s MONDAY! What are YOU reading?

IMWAYR is a weekly blog hop with kid lit co-hosts Jennifer from Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee and Ricki from Unleashing Readers. The original IMWAYR, with an adult literature focus, was started by Sheila at Book Journeys and is now hosted by Kathryn at The Book Date. It’s a great way to share what you’re reading and get recommendations from others. We encourage you to write your own post sharing what you’re reading, link up, leave a comment, and support other IMWAYR bloggers by visiting and commenting on at least three of the other linked blogs each week.

  1. Twins looks really excellent—I’m hoping to get a copy soon! A Promised Land by Barack Obama obviously sounds great as well—I could use a dose of sane politicians right now! Thanks for the great post!

  2. I really liked Twins. I think readers will be looking for the sequel as soon as they put it down. I started A Promised Land this weekend. I am listening to the audible since he is reading it. I love hearing his voice as he tells his story.

  3. I think I will save up Obama’s book for the Big Book challenge with Sue Jackson at Book by Book.

  4. I’m hearing such great things about Twins — I hope we get a copy soon. And, like Cheriee, I should probably save A Promised Land for Sue’s Big Book Summer Challenge. Thank you so much for these shares, Jennifer! (I need to go hunt you down on Twitter!!)
