Welcome to my webpage! I'm Lynn, professional educator, wife and mom (to adult children and dogs!) avid reader and traveler. I started this blog on my old teacher website, so those who used to watch that list, it's all here and more!
My reading background--I have spent my LIFE loving books, and 27 years of that life in the high school classroom, sharing that love of reading with sometimes receptive students. I've been blessed to also be on the board of the Wisconsin Council of Teachers of English and the Conference on English Leadership (an affiliate of the National Council of Teachers of English), which has allowed me to travel to NCTE conventions around the country, gathering books to bring back to my students and family. I have also had the privilege of being involved in a small teacher-populated book club (The Society of the Dog-Eared and Well-Thumbed) for over 20 years, and many of the books which I've reviewed have been a result of book club selections. (**Disclaimer--the opinions contained within this website are mine alone and not representative of any member of the book club!)
I truly believe that the right book in the right hands can change a life. Whether you read for pleasure while on the beach or you're curled up on your couch with a new novel, I hope you enjoy my reading observations!
