This month, Rebecca Reads will be participating in the Ultimate Blog Challenge.
The idea of this challenge is to get in the habit of writing and posting every day! Don’t worry, I won’t post if I don’t have something great to say to you! I just need to post 31 times in July and I plan on doing that.
I have a lot of book reviews in the works, and I’m still reading. My goal in joining this challenge is to get back to regular blogging and sharing with you, my readers! So far, I’m eager to get reading and writing.
Are you interested in joining in with me?
This is the place! If you have read and posted about poetry in August 2013, leave a link to your blog post. Learn more about this poetry project here.
Just a reminder: you can read and post about one poem, a collection of poems, an anthology, or even a nonfiction book about poetry or a poet. Leave a permalink below (that means, a link to a specific post, not just your main blog page).

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday is about beginnings and endings of books. I’m going to focus on beginnings.

Somehow, at every library book sale I come away with poetry books: anthologies, individual authors, it doesn’t matter. Somehow I buy them!
This year in April, I did not focus on reading poetry as I have in the past. It’s about time.
This August, I pledge to read poems and write about them on this blog.
Would you care to join me? (more…)
Apparently, my RSS feed has been broken for some time. I realized it yesterday and righted the wrong, so if you received two months of posts at once, I apologize. I am still here. I am not posting as frequently. I am still reading, but not as much. Life is very busy!
Baby Strawberry celebrated her first birthday this weekend. Raisin is well in to his kindergarten year and I’m already making plans for next year. My involvement with his homeschooling is bringing me into a new community of educators. I even started a blog about homeschooling, learning, and teaching. It is a much more personal blog. If you are interested, come check it out.
My logo for Line upon line, my homeschooling blog, echos the logo for Rebecca Reads, but now there are three faces peering over the book
In terms of reading, I tackled Dead Souls by Gogol for my Classics Book group last week. I thought it was hilarious in its subtle humor. I have lots of thoughts about it, but I am once again not certain how to put my thoughts and feelings in to words in the limited time I have. I also read another parenting/teaching book, a nonfiction book via netgalley to review, and I have more review books in progress.
I am still reading a nonfiction book about Shakespeare for my “Begin with the Bard” project. If I manage to finish that before the end of February, I will have gotten to two plays and two nonfiction books for Shakespeare in January and February. Those are pretty low numbers for that project, but since four books is a huge percentage of what I read in the last two months, it isn’t too shabby!
What are you keeping busy with these days?
