Thinking of Teaching had the opportunity to interview Donalyn Miller, the author of The Book Whisperer and is hosting a linky party to share answers to the questions that Mrs. Miller answered. Here are my answers:
1) What is your favorite book (or series) from childhood?
My favorite series was The Boxcar Children growing up. I also read Wilder's Little House series. I loved reading although wanted to choose my own books. My Mom is a reader and always wanted me to read the Nancy Drew series but, I refused because I wanted to be my "own" reader. To this day I have never read a Nancy Drew book...I know I'm a bit stubborn! I see this trait in my students too so I love giving them choice!
2) What is your favorite book (or series) now?
I am a lover of Non-fiction, I love to read professional teaching books. I usually read fiction books in the summer though and I am currently reading Save the Date by Jenny B. Jones. I am also a lover of children's fiction (specifically children's picture books) and found myself in Books a Million Thursday reading book after book!
3) What is your opinion of e-readers?
I don't have one but, I see a purpose for them. On the other hand I love opening a book for the first time and cracking it open and turning the pages.
4) Finish this sentence: "On Sundays I like to..."
Go to church, eat lunch, take a nap and work on some school work.
Organized, Determined, Practical, Researcher, Workaholic
6) Hardcover or paperback? Why?
Either or, I am not biased!
Starbucks or flavored coffees only! Even though I live in Georgia I strongly dislike Sweet Tea!
