What I'm Reading Wednesday

Have you ever listened to an audio book? During my student teaching year, I began listening to audio books during my commute to school everyday. I listened to several James Patterson thrillers. Sometimes, I would camp out in my car in the morning because I couldn't turn the car off!! My trips to and from school would fly by because I became so involved in my books. 

My latest audio book was "Bossypants" by the one and only Tina Fey. The great part about this audio book is that it was read by Tina Fey. I was literally laughing out loud while I was driving. It only took me 2 trips to finish it! (I travel a lot!) It was a great investment. 

This month, my book club selected The Kite Runner. I'm about 70 pages in right now and it's pretty good so far. I am having trouble keeping all of the characters straight. I'll figure it out!

What books are you reading/listening to this week?


  1. I loved both of the books you are reading! I just finished "Lone Wolf" by Jodi Picoult. It was different, but very good. I read it in a day- it's a book I couldn't put down for very long!

    Teaching Special Kids

    1. All of Picoult's books are wonderful. I'll have to check that one out!

  2. I listened to The Help on CD several summers ago and it was AMAZING! I'm going to look for BossyPants at Costco. I could use a laugh while on the road.

    The Teaching Thief

  3. I've got a ton of books ready to read this summer, but right now I'm reading Beach Lane by Sherryl Woods. My mother-in-law lent it to me along with a million other books last summer at the beach, and this is the one I never got to. I didn't think I'd be interested (hence the reason I didn't get to it), but it's a very cute love story!

    I'm also reading through the Daily 5.

    The Dalton Gang

    1. Oh awesome! I love a good love story ..and all my favorite teacher books! :)

  4. I love Bossypants! I read it first and then I listened to it. Tina Fey is hilarious.

  5. Oooh I love The Kite Runner! I had to read it for school. It takes a while to get into, but pretty soon you won't be able to put it down!!

  6. First, Kite Runner is AMAZING!!!!!!! How is Bossypants?
    I'm currently reading The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest. I know I'm behind the curve but school reading kept me bogged down the past 4 years :)

  7. I've read both of those. I actually listened to both on audiobook. Bossypants was absolutely hilarious. I was also laughing out loud while driving down the tollway. I thought The Kite Runner was a life-changing novel for me. It still ranks in my top five. The movie does not at all do it justice.

    I also do a bunch of James Patterson audiobooks. I finally convinced the Mister to listen to one (Zoo) while he was on a recent business trip. He just might be addicted now too!
