I'm finding that much of my reading is falling into two distinct categories this summer. Tayshas list books and books on hygge. There are a few other books I'm reading here and there, but I'll put all of them into miscellaneous--a bit of leadership, a bit of pedagogy, a bit of non-fiction on non-hygge topics and a mystery or two--but for the most part I'm on a Tayshas/hygge roll here.
I took Lara Avery's The Memory Book with me to Austin this past weekend. I was attending Texas Library Association's Annual Assembly and my meetings were staggered at weird intervals which meant I would have some reading time in-between.
This book. Oh, my heart. I loved it, so. Written as journal entries into a book to help retain her memories, Sammie shows us what it is to be human. I finished this book right before my last meeting of the day on Saturday and went in weepy. This book is gorgeous and hard and requires tissues. Loved this #tayshaslist book.
I also took Jeff Zentner's The Serpent King with me.
Have I mentioned that my goal is to have the most Book People-ish high school library in the world? #goals #hygge
