I looked at my Goodreads account before I left for the NCTE Annual Convention and I found that I’m 53 books behind my goal. Whoa! It’s time to begin reading again and I need to post my titles on Goodreads, apparently. I’m starting over this week with the reading categories: Physical Books, Libro.fm, and NetGalley (I’m SO BAD about NetGalley, but there are some new titles that I’m excited about).
Physical Books: Nonfiction November includes a new title I heard about at an all-members session at NCTE. I will read What the Fact? Finding the Truth In All the Noise by Dr. Seema Yasmin this week. Dr. Yasmin’s talk was so interesting! I can’t wait to dig into this book that is NOT about “fake news.” (You’ll see what that means when you read it.)
Libro.fm: My guilty pleasure in TV-land is watching episodes of Friends, so I had to check out Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing: A Memoir by Matthew Perry. I find his story sad, but it sounds like he’s coming back to life. One can only hope.
NetGalley: NCTE inspired me to gather some new titles from my reading/writing friends. Jasmine Warga’s newest, A Rover’s Story, was released in October and I’m excited to read it since I love everything Jasmine writes. Torrey Maldonado’s Hands and T.P. Jagger’s Hide and Geek #2: The Treasure Test both come out in February 2023.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you! I hope you find time to reflect and rejoice this week.
It’s Monday! What are YOU reading?
