Daylight Savings Time started in the Northwest yesterday. I probably should have listened to the experts about what to do to adjust such as getting to bed early. But I could not! I had to finish Hold Fast by Blue Balliett. I recommend this book, probably Balliett’s best. I am now going to attempt listening to books in the car and do a Balliett book study. I read Chasing Vermeer years ago but didn’t follow up on the rest.
Vancouver, WA, the city where I work is having a city all-read event with the following book. Several teacher librarians will be reading and discussing.
Find out what others are reading at Teach Mentor Texts.
I also love Hold Fast. I can’t seem to get my kids to bed tonight. They don’t seem to have adjusted to DST yet.
I’m reading HOLD FAST right now! What a coincidence! I also only read Chasing Vermeer. Thanks for posting and I will definitely visit your blog again!
Hi there Jone, I am not sure if I have a copy of Hold Fast but I do own a few Blue Baillett titles in my bookshelves. I didn’t realize you live in Vancouver – one of my favorite cities, ever. 🙂
Hi, Jone. I haven’t read Blue Baillett’s books. What do you like about them? I’d like check out Chasing Vermeer and share it with my 13 year old.
I love how she plays with words and math and mystery. Hold Fast is my favorite. Will start re-listening to Chasing Vermeer again next week. Let me know how it goes with reading the books.
