Hey Readers! I know some of you are reading this summer (at least a little). I am almost done with Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Russell and I have been reading it together. I love it when I re-read books because I always pick up on new details and events that I missed before, especially in those looonnnngggg books like Harry Potter. I'm about to start a new one called The Calder Game. I'm leaving for the beach in two days and hope to start that on my vacation. I'd love to hear what y'all are reading or would like to read. I'm shopping for my classroom library and picking up some new books. Any requests for next year?

Hey guys - I hope you are enjoying your summer. I am new to this "blogging" thing but wanted to give it a try over the summer and see how it goes. I am almost done reading the first book in the 39 Clues series - the one written by Rick Riordan (the author of The Lightning Thief). This one is called Maze of Bones. It's pretty cool! I have about one chapter left. The book also includes cards inside the cover you can use to help you with the mystery. I think I'm missing some cards so I haven't used them very much while I was reading. You can also go online and play a game connected to the series. I am going to try to figure that one out this week. If anyone has read this one or has been online, let all of us know. I look forward to hearing from y'all!
