It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (June 18): 06/18/18
Last week started out slowly reading-wise. I got myself unnecessarily stressed out when by Thursday I hadn't finished Welcome to Night Vale even though I had been reading it for five weeks. I finally found the time Thursday night to finish the book.
On Wednesday our youngest graduated elementary school. She'll be heading to the middle school at the end of August. She also earned her "pathway to biliteracy" award for successfully completing seven years of Mandarin immersion. She also had to do an interview and write two essays (one in English and one in Mandarin). She will be continuing with the program in middle school.

Night Vale wasn't hard to read, it just didn't fit in with my schedule.

Congrats on your daughter's achievements.
I listened to Night Vale and quite enjoyed it.

If I were to buy it myself, I would have gotten an ebook version. I was borrowing my son's copy. I did enjoy it but I couldn't take it with me which meant I needed longer to read it.

It was silly to stress out over taking longer than expected on a book, especially one that wasn't for a deadline.

Congratulations on your daughter's accomplishments. How exciting for her. Our youngest is heading to high school in the fall.
The covers on so many of these are lovely. I've never read The Wizard of Oz. I really should.
Comment #18: Monday, June 18, 2018 at 22:06:00
You can get a free ebook version of the Wizard of Oz from a number of different sites. Your public library will probably also have it in print.
