Book Blowout Udate & A Fun Video Clip

So I haven't much to blog about today. I finally finished Three Cups of Tea a few days ago and have since started reading The Color Purple by Alice Walker. Wow is all I have to say. Oh, and what took me so long to find this book?!

My feelings on Three Cups of Tea Haven't changed since this blog post. In the end I thought it was an amazing story. I'm glad he told it, but I ABSOLUTELY hate, hate, hated the writing style. Sorry. But I did. I think had I not been reading it as part of the Book Blowout, I'd have quit reading it. I'm glad I finished it. And I have to say...bless his wife cuz she's got a heart of gold and the patience of Mother Theresa.

So, here is my reading list so far:
1. Finished The Poisonwood Bible
2. Read PostSecret
3. Read Three Cups of Tea
4. Am reading About the Authors by Katie Wood Ray
5. Need to finish To Understand by Ellin Keene
6. Am reading The Color Purple
7. Need to Read Last Days of Summer by Steve Kluger (book for reading group)

That's about all I have. Enjoy your Saturday and see you tomorrow for Weekly Winners!! OH and have you entered my giveaway yet? PLEASE GO ENTER IF YOU HAVEN'T!!! Click here.

Thanks for visiting my blog. Yes! I had already entered your contest. I also teach third grade. I had intended on writing more in my blog about teaching but just haven't yet - because it is summer I suppose.
