Ahbre, Tasha, Melissa, Brent and Austin listening to Katie Davis.
a pod cast newbie
test looms over addled brain
summer explore time
This is the state of me. Last week I did my first author interview with kids and author Katie Davis. The students read her first novel, The Curse of Addy McMahon, published in April. Perhaps I have the curse. Sound quality was awful. I really wanted to get it right so following my discovery I called the students back. I taped them as a round table discussion about the interview. Still sound quality when I uploaded to the computer.
What I wanted to do last weekend was spend time getting the pod cast to work. What I had to do was study for the upcoming national boards test on June 14. I know me. To involve myself in the pod cast experiment would have consumed my time followed by panic for not studying.
So the pod cast adventure is on hold until summer. I have written up the interview from my notes (thankfully I took notes) and will post the interview later today. If you have not read The Curse of Addy McMahon, get it for your summertime reading. It is a fun and original new entry to the middle grade world.

Happy Reading. I have to study instead of participating in the “48 Hour Challenge” at Mother Reader. Drat!
