It's Monday. What Are You Reading?

Sheila over at Book Journey started  

This led Jen and Kellee over at Teach Mentor Texts to start 

With this meme, the aim is to get people to reflect on the reading they did during the past week, and to also make a reading plan for the coming week.  Sheila had a great idea and Jen and Kellee tweaked it with a kitlit focus. It's a great way to see what other people are reading, but I really like that this might just get me to make a plan for the week.

This past week was chock full of reading and it would take pages and pages to talk about all of the books I was able to sink into so I will do this in list format first.

I love vacations. :)

Since we will be back in school, the plan for the coming week is to finish The Story of Mankind and read a few Caldecotts. Going back to school will slow down my reading significantly, but it will be great to be with the kids again.
