Making Time for Reading

I get asked, how do you read so much? Or I'll hear colleagues comment that they don't time to read. We're all busy. I get it. But, if you're committed to literacy, you make time for reading whether it be related to school or for personal reading. Kids benefit from teachers that read. I whole-heartedly believe this. Teachers that are current on books and authors can help match kids with books, share in authentic book conversations, and model the importance of a reading life.

To help make time for reading, I've been listening to at least one audiobook while reading novels. I try and finish an audio within two weeks or abandon if I'm not feeling it. This has greatly helped to increase my book count and tackle books that are longer than my weekly stamina. I've been using the Overdrive app. Overdrive is a free app that allows you to link your library card to available audiobooks and e-books. There are also other apps like Audible and Hoopla as well.

Here's a few of my recent favorite audiobooks:



  1. Do not give up hope tuk best. Prepare yourself tuk worst. And thank whatever god gave.

  3. Libraries in Paris are an architectural landmark. Read a book, or spend hours walking around these beautiful buildings and paying close attention to every single interior and exterior detail.
