It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

We are joining the blog trend of Monday posts about what we have read during the last week (9/14/2020-9/20/2020).

Annamarie’s Reading

Picture Books & Readers:

Everything Else:

Note: My reading is finally slowing down, which was about due, I think. Though I’m intentionally squeezing in more longer titles which is a nice way to balance out my reading. I’m sure picture books will pick up again soon as the October releases start to come in.

Stats for the Week:

  • 25 Books Read This Week
    • 13 Books with Diverse Main Character (52%)
    • 9 Books by Diverse Authors (36%)
    • 6 Books by Own Voices Authors (12%) (to the best of my knowledge)

Check-In on Yearly Reading:

  • 1264 Books Read This Year
    • 594 Books with Diverse Main Character (47%) (+11% from July)
    • 352 Books by Diverse Authors (28%) (not calculated in July)
    • 296 Books by Own Voices Authors (23%) (to the best of my knowledge) (+5% from July)

I am reading more diversely, as the stats are increasing. I’ve been book talking more diverse titles as well, though my storytime diversity is still weak. I actively included more material when I was working with preschoolers, but baby books and toddler books are harder to select due to finding materials that are age appropriate and work well virtually. I’m going to work harder there.

This week’s reading highlights:

Michala’s Reading

Note: I was a bit under the weather with a migraine the last few days, so I do apologize that I added my reads after this was published originally. But I am working on an actual blog post, so gasp! there will be a teen update this week. 🙂

Michala’s Reading

Note: Happy Labor DayI I hope that you are enjoying your day off (or that you got the day off) After reading a bunch of graphic novels in the hopes that I could match Annamarie with number of titles read (spoiler alert I did not even come close), I have decided that I will not be reading anything today. Instead I am going to hang up some art that has been waiting to be displayed forever and love all over my fuzzball Frankie so he doesn’t act like the kitty in No Fuzzball!
