I, too, think it would be awesome to have time during the day to read,
but it's not going to happen. Of course, there are always those on my
faculty who would LOVE to be the librarian..."all you have to do is read
Yeah, right!

I'm in a 9-12 school. I take a lot of books home, read some, but with
others I skim and/or read first, middle and last chapters. I also depend
on my student readers for recommendations. Of the 500 new titles we've
just added to the collection, I can see at least 100-150 I should read

I would be interested to know how HS librarians feel about this. It is
as much of a perk when you are trying to keep up with 200 plus page
(I am a slow, deliberate reader.) And I still can't bring myself to read

some of the popular ones like Cirque du Freak. With the little time I
I at least want to read the ones I think I will enjoy. Sometimes I have
settle for the first couple chapters. And sometimes I just ask the kids
have read them.
