Oh yes, instead of getting a parade as TOY, I get to write several essays about why I am awesome, why my teaching is awesome, why others should think I am awesome. I think I prefer the parade, but alas 'tis not meant to be. How ever did I survive teaching AND Grad school?
I have been reading Silence by Beccca Fitzpatrick, but by the time I finish working on paperwork and scoring essays, my brain is so exhausted that I reward myself with just a single chapter (it's all I can take at this point). So, I am looking forward to the Thanksgiving break next week when I can at least enjoy a few of the great books I've put my hands on recently.
So in the midst of keeping up with my grading and essay writing, I've also been plotting. I am on a mission to bring Becca Fitzpatrick to the Decatur Book Festival next year. And if she cannot make DBF, maybe the Southern Book Festival. Either way, I'm on a mission to hear her speak next year!
What have all of you been reading? What steals your time away from books? I would love to hear from all of you.

Yep, that's me!
