I'm really looking forward to some leisure time this summer to really join the conversations going on in the blogosphere and thoughtfully consider how that might impact and improve my classroom teaching. I'm also definitely going to order The Next Step in Guided Reading by Jan Richardson to join up with the book study by the gals at Freebielicious. I've enjoyed the book so much already, and I haven't even read it yet! I just saw that the Kindle edition is cheaper than the paperback with no waiting for shipping... I don't have any room on my bookshelf in my shared classroom anyway, so maybe this will be an iPad read!

On that note, do you like reading on eReaders? I generally do, but sometimes I get lost without the physical book, if that makes sense. You know the feeling when you have 11 tabs and 3 programs open on your computer and you minimize one and then can't remember where you were going and what to do next? I don't get that from real books. But I do LOVE the search feature, and I'm not really a take-notes-in-the-margin-and-read-them-later person. I'm more of an underline-it-to-make-it-pretty-and-then-misquote-it-later kind of reader. "Well, Katy Wood Rays says that... Or it was something like... Well, I'm not really sure but I remember thinking that... Or maybe it was Reggie..."
I think I'll sleep on it and maybe buy it tomorrow! Maybe then I could actually be caught up by the time I get home. Off to bed in paradise!
