Lovely quote about #reading

I discovered this post on yahoo today and I thought it was interesting. How many of those books have YOU read?

I’m 27 and so far, I have read none of them! lol - Although I have read most of 1984.

Hilarious but saddening post. This won’t be too far away for some!

Finding Time vs. Making Time

I honestly wonder what I did with all that time I had, before I became a teacher.

Scrap that.

Main Idea Anchor Chart


Bibliochaise by Nobody&co

I was just thinking how perfect this would be for my humble little apartment when I read the designer’s quote:

“Twelve years ago we lived in a tiny flat, full of books but with nowhere to sit. Problems are always the best inspirations.That same year we drew the first Bibliochaise: a cube in which to sit, with slots all around to put books in. Geometry is magic. Each time you draw a cube or a square, something wonderful can happen.”

Perfect summary. Apparently the chair can hold 300 books and (even more win) comes in a range of different colors. You can visit its home right here.
