#GB101020 [Monday Reading] List of Ten Monday Reading Posts

List of 10 Monday Reading Posts for the past ten years.


It's Monday! What Are You Reading

Myra here.

It’s Monday, What are You Reading is a meme hosted by Jen from Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee and Ricki from Unleashing Readers (new host of Monday reading: Kathryn T at Book Date). Since two of our friends, Linda from Teacher Dance and Tara from A Teaching Life have been joining this meme for quite awhile now, we thought of joining this warm and inviting community. 

GatheringBooks is very excited to be celebrating its 10th year Blogiversary!

The whole month of July will be devoted to sharing our List of 10 for GatheringBooks’ 10 years in 2020 – #GB101020.

For today’s Monday reading post, allow me to share my List of Ten (shared in no particular order) for my Monday reading posts over the past years. Based on my archive search, we have only started joining the Monday reading community in 2012 (or at least tagged and categorized our posts as such). Click on the titles or the image to be taken to the post.
