I love your blog.
I love books and writing and your garden and someday if I have more time in my life, I will do more than comment once in a blue moon.
The Nancy Farmer book about ear eye arm, is one of my favourites ever.
and many other good ones on the list that I haven't dipped a toe into, yet.

Gawdess I started the Ear, Eye and Arm book last night and I can't stop thinking about it. Wow. I love your blog too.

NYC teacher - what are you reading this summer?

I think you're pretty restrained considering you work in a library. When I worked in a library, they had to ban me from taking books before they had even hit the new books shelves!

Andromeda Jazmon said...

Err... Yeah, I do that too. It's so hard not taking home books every day!
