105 Ways to Give a Book

Bedtime Reading

Usually I leave the BB Blog posts to Fuse#8, because she does generally catch the best ones, but I couldn’t resist these book sheets for your bed. So simple and yet so interesting. You can see more here, but it appears to be an artistic project rather than a commercial product. Darn.

Would the sheets count for the 48 Hour Book Challenge, now mere days away? Probably not, as the books read need to be the teen and older-kid versions, like in the two-hundred-page range. Re-reading books is fine. Adult books are fine. Graphic novels not so much. Not that there is anything wrong with them. Some of my best books are graphic novels. But for this challenge, we don’t want to be comparing apples and oranges in terms of page counts and books read.

I have to mention that unlike what my horoscope said, today did not turn out to be one of the best days of the year. I actually felt kind of sicky a lot of the day, which pretty much sucks. I did enjoy going to the second grade Parents’ Breakfast, where I saw my daughter’s “author’s portfolio” and then ate some doughnuts and scones. The scone was definitely a highlight of the day.

Speaking of sweets, Robin Brande offered to send something delectable to the 48 HBC winner. Chocolate is her trademark gift, but a little melty for the summer. Maybe it will be something in the gummy family. I’ve also had some gift card offers that I’ve got to figure out how to use. Still waiting on John Green and Brotherhood 2.0 to weigh in. Given my horoscope, I thought today would be the day...

Where did you find those sheets? I did my reading last weekend. I know it doesn't count and I am envious that I will miss this weekend. I posted here:http://maclibrary.edublogs.org/2007/06/04/monday-matters-week-of-june-4-2007/
I hate that our district blocks commenting on most blogs.
Good luck to those participating.
