ONE LAST POST (Until April)

Literacy and Me

Ordered today: The Reason I Jump by K.A. Yoshida and David Mitchell, translator

Chosen for her Memoir Project for my Advanced Writing class, Reason really impressed my student and is a book I need to read in April during my excursion into “All Things Autistic,” as I observe National Autism Awareness month. While I am taking a vacation from blogging, I will be reading, reading, reading during March.

Please list suggestions for books about autism that are interesting to read and especially novels where one of the characters is autistic. Thanks!

Staycation and Vacation


I need a break. I will not be reading blogs or posting for awhile. I need to catch up with school, have a procedure done on my back (not much more complicated than getting shots, but more effective), and prepare for my four day trip to NYC. Every time I type those three letters, I remind myself that this is a dream come true. As McArthur reassured us, “I [too] shall return.” Thanks for your patience and your support.

Signing off for awhile,

Welcome to Powerful Women Readers. This book group/society of women is the resurrected book group of the Alvin branch of the American Association of University Women from back in the 80s. We have been active as an on-line book club group since September of 2015 and have had a few get-togethers open to all PWR members and their friends who share a love of reading, books, and literacy concerns.

We believe in life-long learning, and reading and sharing books is part of that goal. We suggest good books to read and get together irregularly and spasmodically to share book recommendations, pass along books we’ve read, and encourage others in our efforts to promote literacy locally and nationally. Some of us have been “planting” Little Free Libraries in our yards and around the Alvin area.

The PWR post is available as well at  Many of our bookish friends follow us…

WHAT I am continuing to read is Elizabeth Gilbert’s City of Girls, one of several books I’ve read set in old New York of g.jpg

WHAT I am looking forward to reading (and finishing this weekend since it is due Monday at my local library) is th-1.jpegThe Bookman’s Tale by Charlie Lovett, billed as ” a novel of obsession” and another of my own choices to read as many Books about Books as I can.
