These four simple verbs have been my mantra, really for all of my life; I just didn't realize it until I formally became a teacher in 2003. I am a wife, mother, reader, writer, teacher, learner, yogini, Pinterest enthusiast, consummate searcher of amazing recipe blogs, and all-around wanderer. Here, I document some of those wanderings.

Reel Reading for Real Readers: Sometimes you need something sweet
Join Amy and Heather over at threeteacherstalk.com for more fantastic YA book trailers to share with teen readers every Thursday.
There was a little paperback book with a simple black and white photograph of a couple kissing with a cool title that made huges waves at my book fair last fall. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith is the perfect cure for your reading sweet tooth. Like Sarah Dessen, Jenny Han, and Elizabeth Scott, Smith writes a simple, honest, sweet book about love. But don't let her simplicity fool you.
This book is chalk-full of beautiful paragraphs and one-liners, dynamic and deep characters, and an well-orchestrated narrative reminiscent of such romantic film classics as When Harry Met Sally and just about any other Meg Ryan flick.
