This Week’s Book Haul:
I grabbed Redemptive on KU, A Stone in the Sea was free, and I purchased Lady Midnight!
Ok, fellow bloggers, this was a ROUGH week for me as a blogger. First, my FB page lost like 10 followers. Then, I was declined for a book on NetGalley because they were looking for more established bloggers with large social media following. I try not to take it personally, but I’m pretty sensitive and have felt super down about the whole thing all week. I just felt like a failure. Sigh… (that was the first net galley book I have been declined for since September).
The husband and I are still on the lookout for a house. The builder we loved is no longer developing in the area we want. But, there are some plots still for sale, so if we buy the land, then hire the builder to build on that land, it should work out. At least, thats what I think. Apparently, according to my real estate agent, its not that straight forward. I should have known it couldn’t be that easy! We looked at another builder in a different development but we weren’t thrilled. It was okay. But, we were so in love with the other one, everything seems to kind of pale in comparison.
We have officially started state mandated testing here. My high school students will pretty much be testing on and off from now until May. I spent 3 days administering the Ohio English Language Proficiency test to our ESL students. Next week, I have to administer the Ohio Graduation Test to a few kids who still haven’t passed it. Then we start on the NEW state testing, the AIR test for the sophomores and freshmen. At first, I’m excited for testing days because there isn’t much required of me so I can get some stuff done (paperwork, grades, emails, etc) but after a few hours, I am already bored and climbing the walls! I got a few hours of reading in each day as well because I simply ran out of things to do in my office that would be quiet enough to not disrupt testing. Its gonna be a long couple of months!
So, whats new with you this week? Did you read any of the same books I did? Did you find any great book deals I need to grab ASAP? Let me know in the comments!
