Last weekend, I had my first real vacation in years. This trip was not tied to any conference, workshop, or other PD experience. It was three days when I could do whatever I wanted and was not limited by schedules or anything and it was wonderful!
I love history, so I spent some time exploring historical spots such as Mount Vernon and the battlefield at Manassas. During my tours, I found time to explore the gift shops and immediately focused on books. However, as I scoped out the different titles, I noticed that many of the titles were already in my Kindle or on my bookshelves at home. I mumbled “Got it, Got it, Got it, Read it, Read it,” over and over. At the last gift shop, I finally asked myself if I had too many books. After a brief moment of consideration, I laughed at myself for even asking that question. Of course I don’t have too many books! What a ridiculous question! In fact, I discovered a book about Martha Washington, Abigail Adams, and Dolley Madison that I can’t wait to dig in to!
