Book Binge

I've always felt kind of tortured being surrounded by books all day and not having time to read any of them unless it was to read to a PreK, Kindergarten or first grade class.  But this week being testing week has affored me the opportunity to read during testing breaks and when I am through small group testing while I wait for the rest of the school to finish testing before I open the Media Center for check out.  I also have been reading at night since I don't have lessons to get ready because next week's are already finished!  It has been like a dream!  My husband just shakes his head.  He doesn't understand how I can read so many books in such a short period of time.  It might have something to do with how many words per minute I read...that's 802 for those of you who are curious.  By the way, you can find out how many words per minute you read by going here. Thanks to Fran Bullington on Informania for posting about this neat site. But really, I don't think I really read THAT many books this week, but here's the list of the books.  Read it and you can decide for yourself.

I started this marathon of reading with

So B. It, by Sarah Weeks.  It was so good I cried. 

Then I moved on to

True (...sort of) by Katherine Hannigan.  It was pretty good, too.

Then my husband suggested that I read

The Always War by Margaret Peterson Haddix

I enjoyed it so I thought I'd read the other Haddix books that were in the Meia Center as well.

So next I read

Dexter the Tough, by Margaret Peterson Haddix

Escape from Memory, by Margaret Peterson Haddix

The Girl with 500 Middle Names, by Margaret Peterson Haddix

The House on the Gulfby Margaret Peterson Haddix

Say What?by Margaret Peterson Haddix

and I have begun reading the Shadow Children series.  I have read

Among the Hiddenby Margaret Peterson Haddix

Among the Impostorsby Margaret Peterson Haddix

Among the Betrayedby Margaret Peterson Haddix and

Among the Baronsby Margaret Peterson Haddix

Only 3 more books in the series and I will have finished them all!

So that's a total of 12 books in about a week.  Not bad. 
And I think my craving for books has been satified, for now. 
I've added a good reads widget to the left side of my blog
in case you want to keep up with my next book binge.  LOL

If you went on a book binge, what books would you read?
