A Little R & R

I decided to take a little R & R before things get crazy with back to school.  I wanted to spend some time with my family for these final weeks of summer, so I decided a break from writing was in order.  A trip to Kalahari and fun times with friends and family made August fly by.  So, what does school year 2014 bring for me?  Quite a bit, as always: Back to teaching two courses at Wayne County Community College.  Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings I head to Northline Road to teach college level English.  I really love this second job! Tuesday, I start my 17th year at O.A. Carlson High School.  While public education continues to face challenges, there is no other job for me at this time.  I love my co-workers and students.  Gibraltar is a great place to work. I will be running my kids all over as usual.  Gymnastics, religious education, flag football (which I coach as well), and others events "to be determined."  I would not have it any other way.  I love watch

August 2014 Read of the Month

My August 2014 Read of the Month is a book I really  wanted to read last September.   I have read a few of  Harlan Coben's books and I really enjoy his work.   I mentioned that I really enjoyed his character Eric Wu in Tell No One  and one of my readers suggested Just One Look because Wu reappears in this title. I have mentioned before that I usually enjoy Coben's writing.  The action keeps me on the edge of my seat.  Readers can also pick up any Coben book and start reading, his work is not a series.  To be honest I picked up this book at the  Trenton Public Library  and am already finished.  I enjoyed the book so much I was able to finish it in about three days.  I will still write a full review at the end of the month. Hard to believe that it is already August.  I will be back teaching classes at Wayne County Community College in just a couple weeks and back at Carlson High School at the end of this month.  I hope everyone is having a great summer!  Keep reading!
