Hello Readers! I’m excited about reading and writing in the upcoming year. I’ve been pondering some of the tweets on Twitter. Many of the people I have been following are educators who are passionate about kids and literacy. I’ve noticed over the past month that many tweets were book titles for A Book A Day. A Book A Day is a challenge to read a book a day. There was one tweet that was about pondering the impact on students if teachers read a book a day. Just thinking about the possibilities excite me. I’m creating a page in my blog for logging in the books I read each day. Books can be any genre and picture books count. Anyone want to join in? Two web sites to log your books are Shelfari and GoodReads. You can also participate in a reading challenge on Facebook: The Centurions of 2011:111 Books by January 2012.
