Why Not Me? | Mindy Kaling

The best part of summer reading? The cool breeze on my patio as I flip through pages and disregard all of my actual responsibilities.

Why Not Me? | Mindy Kaling
post image

Summer vacation has arrived!!! 🌸🌼🌞☀️ This teacher has exactly 2 weeks before the start of my summer job (teachers having the summer off is a myth). I am dedicating most of this time to reading through books I have bought and neglected. First up, “Why Not Me” by Mindy Kaling. So far, an OK read. Hoping it picks up a little in the next few chapters #teachersoflitsy #summerread

Perfect Match | Jodi Picoult
post image

Wow....just wow. Halfway through this book and I am mad at myself for having waited so long to pick it up from my bookshelf. Anytime I see a Jodi Picoult book I haven‘t read, I buy it. And every single time, I am glad I did. Her writing is just...beautiful. This novel about the love of a mother is just...beautiful!

“For me, teaching is about love. It is not about transferring information, but rather creating an atmosphere of mystery and imagination and discovery. When I begin to lose myself because of some unresolved pain or fears of the overpowering feelings of shame, then I no longer teach...I deliver information and I think I become irrelevant then.” #teachersoflitsy #iteach

I‘ve lost count of how many snow days we‘ve had so far in just this quarter 🤦🏽‍♀️ This #litsyteacher is not looking forward to make up days in June, but I am going to enjoy this snow day. Highlights for Children and a cup of coffee for me ☕️ #snowday #snowedinandreading

Rachel.Rencher I forgot about Highlights! I used to love that magazine 😁 2y

Started off as a very slow read - I actually had to put it down for some time. When I picked it back up I realized that I had put it down right where it got good! Such a powerfully written book about the strength and resilience of a sexually abused child. A very dark topic portrayed in a slightly different light 👌🏽👌🏽

I couldn‘t put this book down! I was not only able to learn more about the Indian culture through this love story, but I was able to establish parallels to any and every culture. I especially loved the message at the end ❤️❤️ #kismet #fate #destiny #followyourheart

Chelleo This was a super cute book! I loved Rishi 2y

I am in love with the podcast and the book is just as amazing. I am making it a night practice to write down something i am grateful for each day, set my intention for the next day and read a few pages of gem from this book. I‘m feeling my soul!!!

“Rather than sitting on the sidelines and hurling judgement and advice, we must dare to show up and let ourselves be seen.” Yes, yes, yes! I needed to read that this morning 🌞🌞

This was overall a quick and easy read. I enjoyed reading his perspective and getting an inside look at some of his experiences. However, as a teacher in a similar situation I felt like a lot of it was familiar. I can still see it being beneficial though! #teachersofolitsy #itsbeenawhile

The 2017 - 2018 school year is on its way 😓 I've made a promise to myself to continue waking up early like I did over the summer to do things I am always too tired to do after a day of teaching. I'm going to dedicate Fridays to reading! First up!! So far, a really good read.

I fell into the hype and bought this book on my nook 🤷🏽‍♀️ so far, it's been a so-so read. I'm not really hooked and I haven't really learned anything other than funny memories from his childhood. I'm not sure what I was expecting lol

Jess7 I enjoy reading celeb memoirs with funny stories so maybe this would be for me. As long as it makes me laugh :-) 3y
readingatdawn @Jess7 give it a try! It hasn't been horrible just not very "deep". I guess I was expecting more of the life lessons aspect of it. 3y
Jess7 Have you read Born a Crime? It's equal parts funny, inspiring and educational. Highly recommend it! 3y

I'm not usually the "watch the movie version of a book" person. Yet, I felt inclined to give this a try. I actually enjoyed the book and would have to agree that it's one you have to read at the right time. #movieday #chillday #friday #ireallyhavethingstodo #ishouldbereading #ohwell

LauraBrook I love this book and I like this movie! Don't know why it gets bashed so much, there's plenty more dreck out there. 3y
[DELETED] 3803335244 I love both!!! So good 3y
readingatdawn @LauraBrook I said the same thing! That's why I think it's all about what point in your life you read 3y

I've had a rather slow week for adult reading because I'm teaching pre-k this summer. By the time I get home im so tired from running after little ones all day I can barely keep my eyes open to eat 😣 However, I do read aloud every day to the babies. Yesterday we read Rainbow Fish and discussed the concept of SHARING. They loved it! Such a great story about how sharing can make you feel good inside.

It's been a dream of mine since forever to write children's books. As a teacher, I love watching my students enjoy reading and everything that comes with it. I've put this dream off long enough #childrensbooks #futureauthor #teachersoflitsy

MrsGreen I would love to write non-fiction children's books!! 3y
readingatdawn @MrsGreen you should pick up this book! It's got some good insight. 3y

I've been thinking lately... I enjoy coming out on my balcony to read, but I really would love a more comfortable reading nook 🤔 I don't have much space in my apt for any additional furniture. Should I do something out here? #qtna #readingnook #myreadingspace #comfortableread #randomthought #ideas

Bostonmomx2 I would in a minute. I love reading outside of the weather cooperates and it's not terribly noisy 3y
DaydreamingBookworm My dream reading nook has hanging plants. My cottage porch is covered in this thick seasonal vine that makes an excellent cover from people. 3y
readingatdawn @Bostonmomx2 I do too!! I'm going to think of something before the summer is over lol 3y

This is a great motivational book. At times, it felt like I was reading an autobiography, but I recognize the need for him to provide background on the advice he was giving. Overall, I really enjoyed the book. It had me thinking about my life multiple times. I would totally recommend to a friend.

BarbaraJean Welcome to Litsy!! 3y
readingatdawn Thank you! I'm still trying to figure it out lol@ 3y
