It’s Monday. What are You Reading?

Mon Reading Button PB to YAI just want you to know that I love love stories. I especially like to read about love as we get closer to my Favorite Holiday– Valentine’s Day! So, with that in mind, I asked my sweet school librarians to find me David Levithan’s book The Lover’s Dictionary. I found it on my desk this morning. I know nothing about this book except:

1) It has an awesome cover.

2) It is written with page headings like dictionary entries.

3) It has me hooked with this on page 3:

abyss, n.

There are times when I doubt everything. When I regret everything you’ve taken from me, everything I’ve given you, and the waste of all the time I’ve spent on us.

    You have officially inspired an addition to my book list. :] Thank you so very much. I am currently reading “Await Your Reply” by Dan Chaon. I’ve grown to love his writing, which is mysterious and unexpected.

      I do not know the author Chaon. [hurrying to look him up]

        I think I toyed with a website that tells you which book you should read next and came up with his name. This is the second book of his that I’m reading and I’ve been absolutely engulfed in both from start to finish. He’s a good author for men, also, so I often recommend him to my male friends.

    Oh! How “lovely!” I don’t think I have this in my library, but after receiving my Dictionary of High School BS, I feel compelled to find this one!

      I know, right? I like this kind of quirky text structure. I think it would be fun to have students play around with creating their own kind of dictionary.
