PVHS Summer Reading 2017
We're reading this summer - what's on your list?
We all look forward to summer vacation!
Teachers spend their break from school learning, preparing for September and reading. Of course, the English teachers have a stack of books to conquer but so do science teachers, math teachers and even the principal (who works through the summer). Take a look at what #TeamPVHS is reading - maybe we're reading the same thing!

My reading total for 12 days of vacation: 17 books! I certainly did not read everything I packed for the trip but I made a pretty good dent in the pile. I read a nice variety of fiction and non-fiction, print and audiobooks, in graphic and non-graphic formats. My favorite of this week was Who Fears Death by Nnedi Okorafor, a supernatural fantasy that was inspired by in part by a 2004 newspaper article about war violence in Darfur. If you think that you're not "a fantasy reader," you may want to give this author's work a try: it's stunning.
