I am an avid reader with very eclectic tastes…hence the name of this blog! I fell in love with reading at a young age. Through reading, I was able to visit the life of a “Babysitter’s Little Sister,” ride along with children who lived in a boxcar, learn of ” A Wrinkle in Time,” visit the mystical land of Narnia, and learn magic with everyone’s favorite wizard, Harry Potter. My love of reading has remained constant throughout my life. Recently I’ve picked up books dealing with the question of femininity (The Feminine Mystique), sects of mainstream religious denominations that exist within our country (The Witness Wore Red), new ideas in education (Flip Your Classroom), and the life and adventures of a teenaged demigod (Percy Jackson series). Obviously, I have wide ranging interests!
As a mother, wife, and full-time teacher, I find that it is sometimes difficult to read as much as I would like. I often find myself up at 2:30 in the morning with one of the kids, unable to fall back to sleep, and finishing the last chapter of that book I didn’t want to put down, but had to! So, you’ll also find posts about interesting tidbits and ideas concerning my most exciting adventure…MOMMYHOOD!
So, welcome to the crazy, eclectic bookshelf that is my life!
