This morning I discovered that I’ve been “tagged” by Susan at Chicken Spaghetti! Being new to this warm and welcoming blogging world, I wasn’t sure what that meant, or what a “meme” is, but she explained it all very clearly, and I’m really pleased that she thought of me. Thanks, Susan!
The tag is to name 5 non-kidlit blogs I enjoy reading. Well, because I’m a teacher, lots of the blogs I read are related to children’s literature. But here are some of my wider-interests blogs that make my mornings so enjoyable:
Lowry Updates – I may be cheating a little here because this is Lois Lowry’s blog and she writes for young people, but her posts give you a wonderful glimpse into the life of an author of intelligence and compassion (with a great sense of humor!).
In Spring It Is The Dawn – always interesting, thoughtful, and beautiful!
Letters From a Hill Farm – a lovely blog full of books, music, poetry, and good food!
Mary’s Library – I am amazed at the huge variety of books Mary and Wilhelm read, and I look forward to seeing what they find next to recommend. (I started reading The Last Kashmiri Rose last night, so thanks to Mary I am no longer adrift!)
Moving To and Living In Argentina – This was the very first blog I ever read. I enjoy this blog because I have a lifelong interest in Argentina since living there for a year as an exchange student (40 years ago!). She is an ex-pat with a French husband and a brand new baby, so her posting has slowed down recently. But her blog is an interesting way to experience the culture of Argentina, and makes me homesick.
Knit the Classics – I know this is an extra one, but it is an interesting combination of two things I love to do–read and knit. I have to check it often to see what knitting project they are doing while reading which classic!
I’m supposed to pass this “meme” along to some fellow bloggers I enjoy and would like to learn more about, so I’ll tag Shelf Life, Book Chase, Cathrine, Cessie’s Book Journey, and Random Jottings of a Book and Opera Lover.
