Tell Me Something Tuesday #2

    Tell me Something Tuesday is meme hosted by Cambria Hebert , where she askes and you tell. Simple, right?
This week she asked: Have you ever participated in a Book club, buddy read, or Read along?
To be honest, no, I haven’t participated in any of the three kind of group. Unless you count the reading groups I was sent to in school, 1st through 7th grade, because I read slower than other kids. These groups were focused on making you faster still maintained reading comprehension. Most of the kids in these groups didn’t like reading, with all the reading drills, neither did I. All the stories and books were chosen (all very dull) and timed. I hated reading, and I never touched a book, if I didn’t have to.

But after seeing the first Harry Potter movie, I was anxious to read the book. Since I loved reading because it’s my choice.
So now that my sob story is over have I ever participated in a Book club, buddy read, or Read along? No, I would like to. J


  1. Hi Clorissa! So nice to meet you. I am so glad you signed up for the Read Along. You will have a blast getting to know some fellow bloggers. Let me know if you have any questions or need help. Stop by my blog anytime. I always return the favor. So happy to see you doing TMST!

  2. I sympathise with you and the students who struggle with reading. I am a special ed teacher and a mom of a child with a learning disability - with a very slow processing speed. I work every night with my daughter encouraging her to read. We read together often, but I have to find a balance, as she gets frustrated, and still does not like to read, but she always wants to please me.

  3. Hi Clorisa!!! So glad you could be part of the TMST again!!! And YAY for the read along! I am so glad you are joining in!! If you have any questions please just send me an email!
    I can certainly understand why you wouldn't want to read after all that. I think a lot of kids don't want to read when they are given boring books. So glad you are reading now though and that we met!!!!

    Great post!

  4. I am so glad you are joining the read along, they really are so much fun!!

  5. I have tried them all. I love reading a book at the same time as others. Buddy reads are especially cool. My family probably appreciates the fact that it directs my book chat away from them.
    I see that you are signed up for the Masquerade Read Along. That will be a great discussion group.
