My ADHD brain often gets distracted, so I’m either reading more than one book at a time (2-3) or I’m researching background related to what I’m reading. This definitely is a helpful trait as a teacher of multiple types of classes and with students and my own kids reading a variety of different things at once. Currently, I’m reading The Color of Ice (loving the descriptions of Iceland and ice, not so much the descriptions of blowing glass), just started Kingsolver’s Demon Copperhead – WHAT A VOICE her narrator Demon has!, and am researching a webquest and background for my Native American folktales unit in my American lit class in August. The drawback is I sometimes struggle to remember specific details when I’m going back and forth. I have a feeling Demon is going to co-opt my brain once I get really going with that plot. I was hesitant, because I hated Dickens’s David Copperfield.
