SiS Readathon Update #7 and Mini Challenge

I read two graphic novels this time. Babymouse Mad Scientist by Jennifer L. Holm & Matthew Holm (96) and Squish Super Amoeba by Jennifer L. Holm & Matthew Holm (96). Both books were short, of course, but I'm still feeling unfocused. I need a good plan for getting back into reading. But thinking about lunch may distract me!

It is now: 11:20 AM
Total Books Read: 8
Books Read From: 14
Total Pages Read: 1722
Books Read Since Last Update: 2
Pages Read Since Last Update: 192
Total Time read: 625

The mini-challenge this time is to name one book you think should be taught in school, grade of your choice.

Uglies by Scott Westerfeld might make a good choice. There are so many things you could discuss about this one. You could bring in some Twilight Zone episodes, some other short stories about beauty and self-image, you could bring in magazines, etc. And you've got books like Bogus to Bubbly: An Insider's Guide to the World of Uglies and Mind Rain: Your Favorite Authors on Scott Westerfeld's Uglies Series.
