Here's some stuff.

Legit, if this blog were some physical stuff, it would be a pile of junk on the floor.

I'm a high school librarian, and I used to library blog as reading (with cats), but I ultimately decided I'd rather just keep it all here. So there's a few months of my library stuff there.

Also I super like Masterpiece.

my read shelf:
Emily's book recommendations, liked quotes, book clubs, book trivia, book lists (read shelf)

  1. I am so sorry that I have to go finish getting ready now if I’m going to make it to work, because the preview of the next chunk of the news includes footage of a man attempting to do the weather forecast while also wrangling a large dog.

  7. Anyone who’s ever hosted NaNoWriMo write-ins or meetups for teens should totally tell me about how that worked out because my school has a writing initiative going on, so I thought I’d try to run some after school mini-workshops/write-ins next month.

  9. Today: we find out what the good company for doing an e-recycling fundraiser is by creeping on the Facebook photos of our predecessor who will not help us to get the name of the company off a truck in the background of pictures of smiling children.

  17. Last year, a book club meeting was a victory if more than 2 kids turned up and they talked about the book at all. 

    First meeting of this year: 7 kids, 6 of whom had finished the book, talking about The Boy in the Striped Pajamas for a solid 45 minutes with minimal prompting and then transitioning on their own into making modern-day connections about systemic prejudice and bystanders in Ferguson.

    I don’t know what’s different, because they’re almost all kids from last year’s rotating cast, but I’m so optimistic for this year’s club, if not for this country.
