I began with the closest picture books and tucked in for about 2 hours. I posted snippets to Facebook and added the titles to my March books read list. This is the way I hold myself accountable for reading as much as I can while I have the chance. As I said earlier this week, one of my goals during this quarantine season is READING.
As I read the books, I added them to the towering stacks of books that need to float on. I have 20 boxes and 5 bags so far. I am certain that once this quarantine is over, there will be educators who will want to take these off my hands. In the meantime, I will add carefully to these stacks.
Not every book I read, BTW, is a contender for a major award. Each one has, nonetheless, potential readers. That is the point of the blurbs about the books on Facebook. Some of these books will become part of presentations, but they all will get some notice, I hope, online.
So, it is back to reading now. If I can read another 10-20 books tonight, there might be some space on my desk for the ones on the floor right now.
