Spoiler Alert – So I’m noticing a theme in the stuff I’m reading and watching these days — Parents seem to not delivered letters to children when the parent is estranged from their former spouse. This happens in Haddon’s The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, and it happened on Lost, too. Does this really happen? Are people trying to be nice when they do this? Or just selfish? A random thought, but since the blog world is all about random.

Spoiler Alert Over – I’m spending a lot of time on blogs these days – hence my ever-growing blogroll – and you people seem to read A LOT. I do, too, but what I’m reading doesn’t often fit on the blog. I can’t really review student papers here, or share committee minutes with everyone. And while I do finish a book or two a week outside of school, I usually only get an hour or two a day (if that) to read. So how much are you guys reading? Share your thoughts in a comment. What times do you make for yourself where you can read? Where do you read? Even, why do you read?

Final Bit of Randomness – Check out Booking Mama’s site for info about a way to get free books from Lisa Roe, a book publicist. (Thanks to Books on the Brain for leading Booking Mama to this, who then led me to this lead – confusing enough for you.)

Have a happy day, everyone,

P.S. Check out the latest round of book banning at The Literate Kitten. The Indianapolis, Indiana teacher was suspended for a year and half for having her students read this book. It seems she was “insubordinate” because she didn’t have the book approved. I’m appalled. Check out this video at CNN for more info.

P.P.S. On a very different note, check out the video that Books on the Brain posted of David Cook singing Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” on American Idol. I love it.
