On my mind...

This is a Friday photo feature that anyone with a blog can join. It opens the door to us sharing our lives through these photos and gives us all a new way to discover each other, and maybe form new friendships. Your photo should show something at home that you're thinking about TODAY. If you're in another country you should join in when you read this, even if it's still Thursday.

To take part, all you have to do is post a photo, write a short caption explaining it, and link it back to here. Please write a new post, don't link to an older one. When your photo is published, come back and add a comment below, with a link to your blog photo. Please visit all the blogs that appeal to you and leave a comment. If you are wondering why no one has commented on your On my mind post, maybe it's because you haven't commented on anyone else's. Slow down, take the time to cruise around and enjoy your cyber visits.

This book is 'on my mind' today. I have to read it for my study, for the course Youth Literature, and so far it is the only book of which I think: yes, I could give it to my current pupils, and they'd like it! They're about 16/17 year old Dutch teenagers, so it should be funny, but not too difficult.

The book is about the armageddon, and... it all goes wrong! And a demon and an angel work together to stop this armageddon, because they'd like to hang around on earth for a little while longer.
Meanwhile everything is foretold in 'The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch'.

Sounds great! It's really quite tricky to choose novels for teenagers isn't it! I used to tutor English for high school students and oh boy did I get it wrong sometimes. Often books that to me, tick all the boxes, just didn't do it for them. Now I have my own teenager, and even after loving and living with her for 13 years, I still get it wrong every now and then :-) Enjoy!

I love Terry Pratchett's Disc World Series, so I might just check this book out. Thanks!

It's great to find a book your own students would enjoy.
