This post is a part of the Slice of Life challenge which is hosted on the Two Writing Teachers blog. The month of March the challenge is to write a blog post a day.
This month I participated in the first book and bookmark swap sponsored by Jen and Kellee at Teach Mentor Texts. We signed up to participate and filled out a survey about our favorite books. Then we were given a name and we bought a book and a bookmark for our partner.
The theme for this first swap: Your favorite book or a book you think everyone should read. I sent The Book Thief to my partner because I think that is a book that absolutely everyone needs to read. The style of that book is so unique and it is a story that everyone should hear.
When my package arrived in the mail, I was super excited. It was so fun to have that surprise and to get to open a box with my new book and bookmark.
Here is what was inside:
I LOVE IT! Seraphina is one of the books that was at the top of my wish list! I can't wait to read this book. And the bookmark is perfect too! Jane Austen is my favorite author and I love the quote. A huge thank you to Cindy Minnich for the book and the bookmark.
I can't wait for the next book and bookmark swap. I hope everyone received some great books!
