 I'm participating in The Sunday Post, hosted by Caffeinated Book ReviewerStacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews; and Bought Borrowed and Bagged, hosted by TalkSupe. It's a chance to share the print and digital books we've received and posts and events on the blog.

I have a full-time teaching job! I start  in 2 weeks and I'll be teaching my preferred age group, young toddlers. :) Saturday night I got together with some friends for pizza and a movie and we celebrated.

My friend Elle made the pic below for me. I've put it up as my profile pic at Twitter and Facebook. I love it!

  1. Congratulations!

    I think the Thoreau books looks interesting, and love the Monsterland swag. That cover reminds me of Jurassic Park a bit...

    1. It reminds me a bit of Jurassic Park too; my guess is they did that intentionally.

  3. Hooray for the job! Ah, toddlers, what a fun age. I like Matt Damon, but I hate that they put his massive face on the covers of The Martian.

    1. I love toddlers; it makes a difference when you love your age group.

  12. Oh, great news! Congrats, and it's always great to get the age group you enjoy.

    Love that Queen Bea picture, too.

    Enjoy your books...I like the look of Deadly Christmas Secrets...a mystery with a Christmas theme seems appropriate now.

    As for my Graveyard...those are just cleared out for the duration of the carpet cleaning...but I may not bring everything back inside. I'm liking the "blank" look. LOL

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  14. Congratulations and three cheers on the new job! I borrowed The Martian from the library - I hope I have time to read it before it has to go back. Otherwise, I'll have to buy it! The movie's screenwriter is the son of my parents' good friends/neighbors, so I'm doubly excited to see it.

    1. Thanks!

      Oh, that's exciting about the screenwriter! I want to see it but I'll wait until it hits Amazon Prime or NetFlix. I'm looking forward to both the book and the movie.
