Blog Hop and Follow Friday (7)

Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by crazy-for-books. This week's question comes from Somer who blogs at A Bird's Eye Review:
"Do you read only one book at a time, or do you have several going at once?"

Although I have intentions of reading multiple books at once, I usually only read one book at a time. I feel like I'm cheating my book out of something if I share my reading time with another book. If I have to read a book for work, however, I will most certainly read multiples. My brain needs a break from work related reading.












Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by parajunkee's view. This week's question comes from Jess at Gone With the Words:  

How did you come up with your blog name?

 
This is a super easy question for me to answer. The name implies it all. I read at night with a flashlight.  know, very juvenile.  I don't have to hide under the covers when I stay up passed my bed time anymore, but the flashlight habit never died. I loose all my book lights, or the kids break them. Plus, I could never get the stupid things adjusted just right. Half of my page always ended up in shadows.

  6. Hopping through. I don't know that I ever read much with a flashlight, but it sounds so fun and youthful.

This week's question: Do you have any furry friends?


These are my fur babies: 

This is what it often looks like while I'm busy working. As you can tell, productivity is high. 


This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office. 

This is Roscoe. AKA The Boss. He runs the show around here. And yes, he has a sweater AND a coat for cold weather. 

Armchair BEA 2012 Introductions (day 1)

First, let me start off by saying that I am very excited to be participating in Armchair BEA this year. Since this is the first day of the weeklong event, here are my answers to the interview questions:

Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?
Well, the answer the first part of that question, I am a middle school Language Arts teacher in Florida (and probably one of the only people in a coastal city that hates the beach). I’ve been married to my hubby for 10 years and have 2 boys. My house is a constant zoo and I’m turning 30 in a few months. There is a mid-life crisis in my near future, I’m sure, but I wouldn’t trade any of it for the world.
I started blogging in December of 2011 out of necessity. Seriously. My students know how easily I am distracted when they ask me about books (I eventually caught on to their tactics), so I started blogging out of a need for more teaching time. (I should go ahead and mention that I never talked books all day—even…

Review: The Search for Delicious

The Search for Delicious Natalie Babbitt
Product Details

Reading level: Young Adult
Paperback: 192 pages
Publisher: Square Fish (August 21, 2007)
ISBN-10: 9780312369828
Source: My personal book


Summary from Amazon: Gaylen, the King’s messenger, a skinny boy of twelve, is off to poll the kingdom, traveling from town to farmstead to town on his horse, Marrow. At first it is merely a question of disagreement at the royal castle over which food should stand for Delicious in the new dictionary. But soon it seems that the search for Delicious had better succeed if civil war is to be avoided.


Gaylen’s quest leads him to the woldweller, a wise, 900-year-old creature who lives alone at the precise center of the forest; to Canto, the minstrel who sings him an old song about a mermaid child and who gives him a peculiar good-luck charm; to the underground domain of the dwarfs; and finally to Ardis who might save the kingdom from havoc.

My Review: I love this book! It is such a fun, easy, and enjoyable r…
