Working on Vacation?

As librarians one of the most important things we do is READ. So when we go on vacation and take books to read are we working? Some could think so, but I just like to read. I fell in love with books as a preteen and still love them as a 40 something.  (We won't discuss the exact number! It's way too close to the big 5 O.....) This weekend my family traveled to Fontana, NC. Some families go to the beach; my family prefers the mountains. I don't mind either way. I'm going to hang out and read at either place!

For my Nerdy Book Challenge, my list for this week is as follows:

Chapter books:

Big Nate: Genius Mode by Lincoln Peirce
Empty Envelope by Ron Roy
Dork Diaries: Tales from a NOT-SO-Smart Miss Know-it-all by Rachel Renee Russell
Bluestar's Prophecy (Warriors series) by Erin Hunter
The Lost Stories (Ranger's Apprentice) by John Flanagan

Picture books:

Bunny's Easter Egg by Anne Mortimer
Minerva Louise and the Colorful Eggs by Janet Morgan Stoeke

Non-Fiction Books:

Apples and Pumpkins by Anne Rockwell
Ghoulish Ghost Stories by Joan Axelrod Contrada

Professional Books:

Still reading Literacy Work Stations: Making Centers Work by Debbie Diller.
There's a lot to digest in this one.

It's probably an odd assortment, but I'm reading though my last book order!

Last week I read Notes from a Totally Lame Vampire by Tim Collins. It was a different read for me. I kept thinking the whole time. "This is what would happen if you took Greg from Diary of a Wimpy Kid and combined him with a vamp from Twilight!" The middle kids will love these books.

My favorite picture book from last week was Emma Kate by Patricia Polacco. It was such a sweet story about an imagery friend. Loved it. Will definitely use this one with my Kinders next fall.

Happy Reading!


  1. Thanks for book reading ideas! Especially ones i have never heard of before!

  2. I'm trying to catch up on some of the new series. I'm bad about getting books in at the end of the school year and forgetting to read them over the summer. What a bad librarian I have been!
