WHAT I HAVE BEEN READING
I only read one book this week. That sounds weak (for me) but this novel is 866 pages. Surely that gives me a few bonus points.

CATALOGING BOOKS FOR THE BOOK BUS
We have a wonderful resource in my school district, Alvin ISD. It is the Book Bus. It rolls out in the summer, loaded with books for children, venturing into spots where children don't have good access to books.
We librarians in the district spent Friday cataloging books for the Book Bus.
I donated all the books I received as Cybils Fiction Book and Board Book entries to the Book Bus. That was over a hundred books.
Do you have children's books you no longer need? We could use them for our Book Bus. Contact me through the comments here or by e-mail at debnance at gmail dot com.

What is the Sunday Salon? Imagine some university library's vast reading room. It's filled with people--students and faculty and strangers who've wandered in. They're seated at great oaken desks, books piled all around them,and they're all feverishly reading and jotting notes in their leather-bound journals as they go. Later they'll mill around the open dictionaries and compare their thoughts on the afternoon's literary intake....That's what happens at the Sunday Salon, except it's all virtual. Every Sunday the bloggers participating in that week's Salon get together--at their separate desks, in their own particular time zones--and read. And blog about their reading. And comment on one another's blogs. Think of it as an informal, weekly, mini read-a-thon, an excuse to put aside one's earthly responsibilities and fall into a good book. Click here to join the Salon.
The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It's a chance to share news and recap the past week.
Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at The Printed Page. We share books that we found in our mailboxes last week.
It is now being hosted here.
Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews in which you can share the books you've acquired.
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is where we share what we read this past week, what we hope to read this week…. and anything in between! This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from! I love being a part of this and I hope you do too! It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is now being hosted at The Book Date.
