  1. Accommodations in college have been so easy. Much easier than our high school. The college has a Student Disability Services office, and they take care of everything. All my son has to do is notify his teachers each semester that he gets accommodations and send them the link to his file. He then coordinates with the woman assigned to him in the Disability office to schedule his tests with her. All of his teachers for the past three years have also been extremely helpful. And wanted to add that no my son does not ask for all the accommodations he qualifies for. For example, he could have a note taker but that has not been necessary as pretty much every teacher always has the class notes/slides/outline available on-line.
  2. I have no idea. I did learn from the book. I will join the jealous club because I would love a paint along with Bob Ross class. Ok, back to math with kiddo.
  3. Haven't checked in here in a long while. I severely limit online time, and that is mostly all things I have to do. I will try to post more like I used to. Negin, you always post intriguing books. I recently finished The Coddling of the American Mind.
  4. "An exotic trip is just around the corner" The Lord of the Flies. 😂
  5. Fun questions. Tea (although I love a good coffee) Ice Cream preferably Ben and Jerry 4 non-living famous people: Cary Grant, Katherine Hepburn, Audrey Hepburn, Eleanor Roosevelt 4 living famous people: Ellen Degeneres, Michele Obama, Melissa McCarthy, Tom Hanks (whew, that was hard)
  6. I read Love in the Time of Cholera and could not stand it. Hated that book. So much so that I can't bring myself to read any of his other books. It's been a few weeks since I checked in here. I have been reading. Currently, I am trying to finish Plight of the Living Dead. Then I will start The Power for bookclub.
  7. I didn't get around to posting last week about my random book pick based on Robin's guidelines. I ended up with Remains of the Day. I smiled as it's a book I've been meaning to read for a long time. Loving it so far. Kareni, you always get me with links to science books!
  8. Kathy, congrats on your beautiful granddaughter. She has a wonderful grandma who will shower her with stories.
  9. Yes, I big puffy heart Fitness Blender. This morning I did actually do a HIIT followed by a painful core video. I truly have found nothing better than their videos/programs. I've been doing Five Parks Yoga into my mix as well. A friend of mine introduced me to her videos on Youtube. So far she is my favorite for yoga. I recently read a Hirsi book and thought of you the whole time.
  10. Happy birthday to James. Negin, I think you have contributed to at least 1/3 of the books on my tr list.
  11. I got sucked into that series. It was fun! I haven't checked to see if the latest book has been released. I hope the fires die down sooner than later. I know the smoke alone causes many problems.
  12. I just read that according to the Pew Research Center, 1 in 4 American adults don't even read 1 book in a year. When asked why people said they don't have time, yet statistically Americans (age 2 and up) watch 4 hours and 16 minutes watching TV daily. I find those numbers shocking but not surprising. I wonder if the TV watching includes Youtube. I admit that my reading time has decreased since I started watching Youtube. It's a habit I need to reduce so I can once again get back to my pre-Youtube reading life. In my very small defense, I do watch videos to learn things. I love SciShow and TED. I like watching Dr. Dray videos about skin care. So, yeah, at least I'm learning. Anyway, how do you all combat things that take time from reading? And does anyone else here wish they had a waterproof cover for your preferred audiobook listening device so you could listen to audiobooks while in the shower? Is that just me? Still trying to find a book to draw me in after my super busy June and July. I have a huge tr list, but the books are either not available or don't interest me at this moment. I don't like reading slumps, and it doesn't help that Youtube can distract from trying to get over my slump!
  13. Jumping in without having read any posts in a month. I have been offline busy with house guests and traveling for this past month. Did not get a lot of reading done either. I did read Gaiman's Norse Mythology which I loved. Nothing other than that. The next few weeks should be nice and slow after weeks of go go go. Looking forward to joining the conversation again.
  14. It's been a week since I logged in and I come back to such gorgeous pictures. Kids and I finished Lockwood and Co series and we were left feeling unsatisfied. There is no closure. I can appreciate when authors leave endings open, but I admit to liking tidy endings. At the moment I am listening to America's First Daughter. Although, I admit that Chris Hemsworth as Thor is keeping from the book this evening.
