Just three books from the library this week, as I still have some checked out from prior visits.
Now & Then by Jacqueline Sheehan is the time-travel book that I’ve been seeing a lot of around the blogosphere. I skimmed the reviews because I didn’t want to know too much prior to reading the novel, but the reviews seem to be mixed. I’ll have to see where I fall in that mix.
Banana Yoshimoto is a Japanese author that I had never heard of before I started reading book blogs and now her name seems to be everywhere. So I’m starting with her book Goodbye Tsugumi.
And finally, there It’s Not All Flowers and Sausages: My Adventures in Second Grade by Mrs. Mimi. This non-fiction book was in the new books section of my library. Though I consider myself to be highly unsuitable for teaching children and thus never even thought of becoming a teacher, I am still intrigued by stories from the profession. This novel is apparently based on a blog of the same name.
