Thanks Janie for motivating me to post. You are not alone. I also am
doing it for the equivalent of a grad credit with my district.
I really liked hearing that books provide access to more experience.
It’s great being able to experience things I can’t do. I’m thinking of
Jon Krakauer’s works, where I can travel to Alaska, Everest, or southern
Utah while relaxing at night.
I also can relate to the feeling of seeing books and wanting to read them
all. I get a lot of books as presents and they all call to me to read
them, even as they pile up on the book shelf. My wife mocks me, but I
call it an occupational hazard to have books piled high.
Sorry for the brevity, but I am entering grades, writing a recommendation,
and cleaning my classroom as I do this.
