Summer Reading Linky Contest

I never know what I am going to read during the summer because I am a binge reader. What I mean by that, is I read in spurts. Sometimes I read a ton of books day after day and then I go through a dry spell where I don't read at all (except for People magazine and the newspaper headlines). However, this summer I know two books I am going to read, which many of you may have already indulged in. One is for pleasure and one is professional.

Book #1 50 Shades of Grey

Product Details
My teaching assistant read all 3 books in this series in about 1 week, so I am going to save it for my vacation this summer. Can't wait!

Book #2 The CAFE book
Product Details
I have seen so many blog comments and pins on Pinterest about the ideas in this book, so I figure it is another must read this summer. And it will probably give me things/ideas to prep for classroom for the next school year. I love that!

What are you going to be reading this summer?


  1. Stopping by to say hi! I am encouraging everyone wanting to read 50 Shades to read Kushiel's Dart and the rest of the series by Jacqueline Carey. They are awesome. Come by and check out my blog.
