What are You Reading Wednesday May 7th

I keep telling myself that I will take the time to just sit down and READ every day. It’s a little difficult to find the time with a toddler running around but I could do it during naps instead of one chapter before I go to sleep. I’m still working on the same books I’ve been reading for weeks for goodness sakes!

On top of the three books I’m working through right now, I have to add the Common Core State Standards to the list of my reading materials. As excited as I am to have my own classroom and to find out what exactly that classroom will entail (They haven’t told me grade level or subject matter yet), I am not incredibly stoked to learn a new set of standards. But I have all summer to do that.

What about you? Do you have a stack of reading material waiting on you or are you waiting on the right book to read? Are any of you having to learn new standards for your vocations?

If you’re looking for a good book to read, I would like to suggest that you look at my father’s, Dr. Wilson Jay Tyree’s, author page. He rotates e-book giveaways and this week is a brand new book, Essays on Christian Worship. If you need something a little different, my author page currently offers the first three novels in my Young Adult series The Stone Dragon Saga, starting with Dragon on My Neck. The second book in the series, Dragon in My Yard, will be available for free download beginning on Friday (May 9th) and ending Sunday evening (May 11th).

Weekend Three: Who are you Reading…or watching…this weekend

This week’s Who are you Reading article has two missions.  The first is to ask that you, my wonderful readers, leave me a comment telling me what book you are reading and/or what movie made from a book you are watching this weekend.  (Message in a Bottle, Twilight, Harry Potter, How Stella Got Her Groove Back, and Willy Wonka are all on different channels of my cable television today). 

I really am VERY interested in hearing from you all, so please do not be shy in commenting!

 

The second mission of this humble entry is to let you know that I have placed both of my currently available books on the ‘free download’ list for kindle and compatible devices.

Dragon on My Neck (The Stone Dragon Saga, Book 1)

and

Dragon in My Yard (The Stone Dragon Saga, Book 2)

will BOTH be available for FREE download beginning tonight (September 28th) at midnight, and running through midnight on Monday (September 30th).

My hope is that many of you will download, read, and recommend…and even, dare I say it, review or comment with your thoughts and opinions. I look forward to seeing the numbers and, hopefully, reading the comments.

As always, Keep on Reading and have a Blessed Day!
