My school participated in the Million Minute Challenge today, a challenge where schools keep track of their reading minutes. Even at high school, once a month we have a silent reading period, where everyone in the school stops and reads for 20 minutes. The students in my class who forgot to bring a book were offered a selection of my science books - 100 Most Influential Scientists, A Short History of Nearly Everything, The Planets, Latitude, Galileo's Daughter, e-mc^2. They weren't always pleased with the book I gave them, but they had to read something.
Still looking for suggestions for this week's Bookword Game. Pop on over and leave a suggestions, I'll leave the comments open until Wednesday. We can't be shut out. Somebody must have a good name.
In reading, I am in the time after the zombie war, trying to chronicle the beginning of the carnage, before people really knew what was happening. Very interesting book! (World War Z, Max Brooks)
Where is reading taking you today? Leave a comment, write a post, spread the word.
