I’m Not That Type of Girl
As mentioned I'm on longer in the classroom, but instead working as a junior high librarian.
Lots of perks.
Lots of adjustments.
I have a white board over my circulation desk that welcomes the kids to the library and says what I'm reading or have finished reading.
Last week it said:
Ms. Jones is reading Wonder.
Ms. Jones just read Between Shades of Gray.
And I noticed I got some funny looks.
Finally. On Friday two different teachers approached me to basically say, “So, uh, you're telling everyone you've read 50 Shades of Gray?”
They were not alone in their belief. Pretty much everyone thought I was making pervy book recommendations.
Between Shades of Gray is about Russian during and after WWII.
50 Shades of Gray is about things that would embarrass a Playboy Playmate.
I'm now reading Wallflower in Bloom by the author of Must Love Dogs.
What are you reading?
I love that you are in the library now! I’m in the middle of Susan Meissner’s The Girl in the Glass and ready to hop a plane to Florence. If only . . .
