At least we are pretty much done with content-I'm wrapping up a poetry unit with my juniors on Tuesday, and my sophomores are turning in their research projects on Monday (they're presenting through Wednesday). My elective class is still completing their independent novels and will start their projects this week. I'm glad we're moving toward the reviewing aspect before finals next week.

Friday launched the beginning of "A Victorian Celebration," my two-month event focused on the Victorians. The response has been amazing, and I am so happy that so many bloggers are participating. There are already a number of posts on the main post, and I can't wait until I finish my first title (Nicholas Nickleby by Charles Dickens).

There will be plenty of other giveaways and prizes over the next two months, so make sure to check back often to see what the current giveaway is (I think next week is a Hardy title!).
Besides these two huge things-school and the event-life has been relatively uneventful. With the end of a school year comes a lot of grading, but I am caught up and seem to be managing my paper piles rather well. But I still can't wait to have more reading time and the opportunity to make some real progress on my project lists. For a while, I wasn't that invested in what I was doing, so I'm glad to be back in a reading mood...and craving the classics.

I hope you all have a great reading week! Let me know what has your attention!
