Scratching the surface: A-Z in 2017

01 Dec

As part of the #edublogclub year-long challenge to blog on education. While the official club has ended, they have shared posts to continue the journey through 2017. This week’s prompt was to create an A to Z.

Well, it is almost 2018, so why not reflect on what I read in 2017 by breaking it down alphabetically. This certainly does not even capture half of what I actually read from picture books to adult novels, but what a fun way to look back at some of the book I read this year.

    Great idea, Alicia! How many books would you say you read each year? Or is that a difficult question to answer? 😉

      Not difficult at all, I keep track of everything on Goodreads and read about 300 books a year. This year I’m close to 600 because I sit on a list committee for librarians this year and I needed to read more by nature of the work.
