2 DOWN, 48 MORE TO GO


TALES OF BEEDLE THE BARD by J.K. Rowling ...
It's not Harry Potter. I knew that going in. I'd prepared myself for it, even though my fourth grade student, who let me borrow the book, told me it was good, but "not like Harry Potter, Miss Murray." I knew this ... but ... I didn't really like it anyway.

From a teacher's perspective, it's a terrific book to teach fairy tales. However, from a die-heard reader and Harry fan, I just wasn't into it. Sorry, Ms. Rowling. I've still not dealt with my mourning of the passing of the Harry Potter series ....

I can't tell you how much I love that picture. Priceless...

I need to get a review of One Vacant Chair by Joe Coomer up on the ol' blog. Sigh.

Thanks Elly ... I think. :) This is how I plan to begin all my reviews from now on. :)
