I’m going to try and create a links round-up of the fun and feisty articles and posts from around the web. Scratch that, “there is no try”, let’s do it!
My first entry is from a 7th grade Reading teacher in Wisconsin. She’s a go-getter and I am always inspired by her words and ideas. This time, she’s explaining how she introduces POETRY to her students. And since 2017 is Care’s Year of Poetry, I had to share.
A great quote: “You are a 10-year-old explaining to a theoretical physicist how time travel might work.” Did you know I can’t resist a good time-travel book? Now go read this article if you are interested in actively participating in the Anti-Racism Campaign.
Another fun pi + pie video.
Link to The Morning News Tournament of Books 2017 because I can’t get enough of it so there.
NATIONAL BOOK CRITICS CIRCLE ANNOUNCES WINNERS FOR 2016 AWARDS!!!!! (Link to Finalists Announcement. Curious that there were two books about loneliness in the Criticism category? I am. Has anyone read a book in this category? Again, me = curious)
Occasionally, I’ll google-search for “Pies in Literature” or some such nonsense just to see what comes up. This blog (ME!) shows up in SECOND SPOT for today’s look-see at what the webs are finding. Nothing too recent, but there are actual articles from 2015 about finding pie in a certain book. Fun, right? oh yea.
Savvy Verse and Wit has the Monthly Poetry Challenge Sign Up ready. I admit, I’m delighted every time I see a bit of poetry somewhere, here and there. I still don’t quite know how I should track my 100 poems in 2017 but I am proud of what progress I am building towards an awareness and appreciation for how poetry can impact a day in a good way.
Shout out to other bloggers who do EXCELLENT with providing Link Up posts: Jenny who always reads the ends of books first, and, and, and… I couldn’t find any recents ones so please provide me your suggestions! Thanks.
Finally, a poem about pie:
Have a great weekend! I’ll have Dublin and Joyce books to chat about next week. I need to get back to reading books… I need to read The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George by Tuesday.
