Things That Make Me Smile #1 & #2


I cannot help but smile when a student asks me for help in finding another book because the last one was so good.

(This happened maybe 7 or 8 times today. But after helping one student find a book, I suggested several other titles to her for books that weren’t on my shelf today. Then I wrote her a note with even more after I got them writing. Then I had two students ask for similar lists. My. Job. Rocks.)


What makes me smile even more is when they come and ask me if the author of the book they’ve just finished has written anything else.

(When this happened today, I assured this student that, yes, Marie Lu has a sequel coming to LEGEND and that I just happen to have an ARC of it…but that someone else has it at the moment. I offered to find him something else in the meantime, but he smiled and told me he already has his next book in his bookbag. Oh, happy day!)
