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.
Favorite book bloggers who post about pie! Rhapsody Jill and Stefanie of So Many Books. Did I miss anyone?
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.

I love that poem!
You are famous on Google! Or an old post of yours is. Go, Care, go!
Thanks for highlighting the National Poetry Month sign-up post! You can feel free to link up all your 100 poem posts.
When I figure out how to track it all, sure! 😉 And now I want to read more of Derek Walcott – such beautiful tributes today on Twitter.
So upset All the Birds in the Sky beat The Vegetarian in TOB. I have read both of them and Vegetarian is the superior book by far. Grr. Maybe it will come back in the zombie round? Love the Pi poem!
I know, I know. It’s the way of the T.O’B. I did think today’s decision was thoughtful and I know We Love You Charlie Freeman was THE book I missed the most in somehow. Or it didn’t work for me – can’t decide! It perplexes. POINT is that the TOB is like cramming a lit analysis course and how amazing it is that we all see and different things in stories.
Yes, it’s always fun no matter what happens. It’s just plain exciting to have such friendly competition and thoughtfulness with books.
