The Olympics have always been important to me (mainly the T&F events), but this year, it seems as thought I watch everything I can. To tell the truth, I will be glad when it is finally over so I can get back to more reading. Of course as soon as the Olympics are over I will start watching football (The Ohio State Buckeyes & the Indianapolis Colts). The bottom-line is that at times I lack self-control to turn off the TV and pick up a book. Sorry, but that is just the way I roll.
I have a plan to integrate my students' responses to their children's literature readings to this blog, so hopefully that will give us more books to explore. Classes start in about a week, so we'll see if this pans out or not.
