Reel Reading for Real Readers: Eleanor and Park

20130207-190708I hope I get to read Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell before this post runs; I am writing it in advance.

Every time I hear this title another person chimes in with commentary on how much they love this book. Thankfully, I finally got a copy at #ALAN13, and it’s steadily rising to the top of my TBR pile. Sometimes I let students read books like this first, but from what I’ve heard, this will be a popular hit with my kids. I was scared I might never get a chance to read it .

Yes, sometimes I am selfish and read books first.

Here’s another way to introduce students to books:  introduce them to blogs about books. I like this one jenna {does} books. She’s got a Top Ten Tuesdays: My Favorite Quotes from Eleanor and Park.
