Despite how long it has been since I have written an enthusiasm post, let me assure that you I have been excited about a lot of things. I know! I'll start with my new job.
My current system has kids keep track of how much they read, so my branch is having a "Can You Read More Than A Librarian?" contest. I'm keeping track of how much I read, and any child who reads more than I do gets to throw water balloons at me during our end of summer reading party.
Finally, this wouldn't be an enthusiasm post without at least some mention of books. Here are three that I've read and adored this year. No one is surprised that all of these come highly recommended by Ally, and now by me.
