This post has been a long time coming. I didn’t mean to be away for so long, but then I just was.
First off my job has been pretty hectic. I didn’t talk much about the position I accepted in the fall, but I am the librarian at two elementary schools. Most days I feel like I don’t have time at all. I am always fighting to try to get ahead. It is just not happening. Plus, this is my first year as a librarian and I want to do a really fantastic job. That is the first thing I want to talk about. Hopefully with the holidays coming, time off, and more experience it will slow down a bit.
That is the first thing, the next thing is something I am not sure how to say. It is something I am not even sure how I feel about. Needless to say I have my end of the year reading pretty much planned out. Not so much that I can’t change a book out or two, but I kind of have things in mind that I want to read. I don’t know why it is hard for me to change, but it is. The thing is, I feel pressure to read more children’s literature. Most of the pressure is not from people at work. I just can’t change what it is that I have planned. I am just not wired that way. As the new year approaches it is easier for me to plan to read more children’s books. Is that strange or what? Do you have to wrap your mind around changes to your reading plans?
I have also been having a hard time getting into the books that I am reading. It took me all the way until the middle of the month to even finish one book. I don’t know what that is about, but I am happy that I have finished the two that I started this month. Hopefully that will give me a boost.
The other big news I have is that I am planning on attending BEA. I have purchased airfare and have my hotel all booked up. I have never been, to BEA that is. I am beyond excited and can’t wait as more information comes out from Book Expo America. I have
badgered invited my sister and aunt to join me to New York. I know it will be such a fun time. Any one else planning a trip to Book Expo this year?
I have a few posts that I am hoping to get out in the next few days. One of them is all about library book sales. I don’t even want to say how long I have been meaning to post that one!
