Happy 1 Year Anniversary

BookSavors began a year ago today.  Wow!  I’m amazed.  When my dear friend, Ruth, encouraged me to begin writing about  books, I didn’t foresee today.  I only thought of my beginning.  I needed to get started.   The first step seemed to be the hardest.  Writing is risk-taking, and I thank you, my audience, for being a part of this.  You have encouraged me to continue writing.  By writing, I have learned a lot about myself as an author.  Some days, the words flow.  Other days, I feel like I’m repeating myself.  And even other days, I hit writer’s block.  I reach high levels of euphoria and lower levels struggling with time.  This year has been an adventure, a true learning experience that has stretched me.

I am curious.  What books have been a favorite for you? Share with me by commenting.  I’d really appreciate hearing from you.

I look forward to this next year, finding more treasures in books and savoring each along the way.

      Thanks, Cathy. I will have to check out he book Beware of the Frog. I have not read it. Skippyjon is a fun book to read to all. I have not blogged on it and will have to try.

    Happy Anniversary! I do professional development for my district and I always tell teachers about your blog. You are an awesome resource for mentor texts! I love that you use new titles as well as old titles we all have, but might want to take a fresh look at. For example, Old Bear by Kevin Henkes.

    Love it, keep up the great work!
