Big, BIG News!!

What a week and beginning to my summer!  I woke up Saturday morning to find that I had over 600 followers!  Wow!!! 

But, the biggest news is that I will be hosting my first linky this Thursday, which will last throughout the summer.  It will go along with my "Book Talk Thursday", and it will be based on summer reading ~ whatever you are reading for the summer, professional, kids, or even just fun for you!

Here is how it will work ~ write a fun book review of a book you have read and then link up.  It doesn't have to be on Thursday either!  And you can link up as many times as you want!!!!

But, wait, it gets even better!  At the end of the summer, I am going to choose one link up to win a $25 Barnes and Noble gift card.  That way, you can use it to go get some of those books that are in the linky!

For now, I need your help.  I am revamping my Book Talk Thursday and getting a new button for it from Michelle at The 3AM Teacher.  I have two options and can't decide which one I like better.  Please comment and vote to help me decide between these two.

Yellow chair
green chair
My favorite color is green, and that is why I asked her to make that one too.  But, the yellow one looks great too!  Please help me decide!

Be on the lookout for my summer linky and a giveaway to start on Friday!

So excited for summer to finally be here too!


  1. That linky sounds great! I vote for the yellow chair, even though green is my favorite color too. There's just something about it!
