Let's Party-Part 3 and 4 and 5 and 6

Tonight we're party-hopping!! Lots of linkies to join! 
First stop-Jodi at The Clutter-Free Classroom.

We're sharing our summer books here.

Personal Books
I'm playing catch up with a few of these books.
I know plenty of you have read Water for Elephants andThe Boy in the Striped Pajamas.
Have any of you read My Lobotomy or The Thirteenth Tale?

Professional Books
Growing Readers and No More "I'm Done" are on my list
 as well as a reread of Math Work Stations.
Sorry for the glare. My house has very poor lighting!
And notice, I have no Kindle or Nook. Should I invest??

I also have no idea when I'm going to get in all this reading...

On to the next party-

Next up is Farley at Oh, Boy Fourth Grade!
It's Currently time!
Here's mine!
I do love the beach!

Let's keep moving...

On to Natalie at Teachery Tidbits!
We're sharing favorite fonts here!
You know we all love some fonts!

Here are a few fonts I use a lot!

Are you getting tired yet?? We have one more stop-

Our last stop for the night is Mary at Sharing Kindergarten.
She wants to know our favorite things.
Hmmm, there are so many-

1-Coke-The Real Thing! I am quite addicted to Coke...and Sweet Tea!

2-Turner Classic Movies-Do you ever watch TCM? I'm hooked! 
I love me a film from the 40s or 50s. That was real Hollywood!

3-Speaking of  television, this is one of the best shows on the telly right now.
Love, Love, Love some Downton Abbey!
If you haven't watched yet, get on it! You'll be hooked, too!

4-Lastly, I finally finished this little thing! 
I bought the supplies over Christmas but never completed!
FINALLY! I think it's one of my favorites already!!
Again, not the best pic. I'll take another one at school.

Okay, I'm spent from all these parties tonight!

Don't forget to link up with these fun girls!!

Have a great week!

  3. I have a kindle and I love it. Especially now that many of the professional and text books are starting to be available for download, no more huge books and it frees up a lot of shelf space :) Plus being able to download a book whenever I want to is fantastic...and no more debating which book to take with me to the beach or on vacation, I can take them all.

  4. I have the OverDrive app and download books on my iphone. I always have it with me and it is easier for me to read that way.

    Love the organizer! The zebra is super cute :) Water for Elephants was such a great book. Hubby and & listened to it in the car on a trip once. He isn't much of a reader, so I have learned to get him to "read" that way. I liked it better than the movie.

    Every New Beginning

  5. Wow!! Your organizer turned out really cute!!! I am going have to add this to my summer to-do list!

  6. I have read the Thirteenth Tale, and loved it.

    As for the Kindle, I love mine. I do not read professional books on it, though. I like to write in those!

    I still owe you the stuff you won from my blog. Email me at bhmathews@gmail.com and we can figure out how I can get it to you! I'm sorry it's taken so long!


  7. I'm your newest follower-I found you through Farley's linky party! :) Love your blog, and I'm totally with you on the obsession with coke and sweet tea!

  8. Definitely think you should consider getting a Kindle or Nook! I have a Nook and an IPAD and love them both!
