The Sunday Post hosted by the Caffeinated Reader is an opportunity to share with the blogging community what bookish things are happening in our world. So what have I been doing?
Reading | My reading is pretty much the same as last week as I spent all week prepping for my conference presentation. So, still wishy-washying my way through Miss Timmins’ School for Girls, savoring The Miniaturist, and avoiding Descartes’ Meditations.
Listening |I just started listening to the Jordan B. Peterson podcast, and I am loving it. Dr. Peterson is a clinical psychologist and a professor at the University of Toronto. His podcast includes interviews and recordings of his lectures on wide-ranging topics which are absolutely fascinating. I aspire to be as intellectual and entertaining as he is as a professor.
Blogging |Last week, I posted reviews of Stephen King’s The Gunslinger and Susan Cain’s Quiet. This week I have reviews going up for V.E. Schwab’s Shades of Magic series and Jean Kwok’s Girl in Translation.
Doing | I was at the Two-Year College Association Midwest Conference for English teachers, geeking out on awesome sessions and presenting on my college’s hybrid project. And eating. I was definitely eating.
Loving | The last few days of summer…Well, actually I live in Illinois, so we’ve got patches of 80 degree weather here and there for a month yet; still, there’s no guarantees these days.
Wishing and Working | Will someone please grade all my papers for me? Please. Pretty please.
