It's a Wrap - Goodbye to Global Read Aloud for 2014 #GRA14

It's hard to believe that the 2014 Global Read Aloud is over but today I did the final official event with the incredible Q&A with Jenni Holm.  If you are not done, no worries, (I'm not!), but if you are - congratulations!

It's hard to express just what your participation means to me.  Every year I wonder if this is the year that people realize that I still don't know completely what I am doing with this project, every year I think this is the year that people will be too busy or just not interested.  And yet, every year it has grown.  We started with 600 kids the first year, 2010, and this year I closed sign up at 308,000 kids.  The growth of this project is all because of you!  This next year will be one of more growth where I hopefully secure sponsors to help me trademark the name and do other essential things to make it even easier and better for everyone to connect and participate, wish me luck  
I leave with you with the last few updates, I am off to read more incredible books, after all 2015 is just around the corner when we kick off October 5th!

To mail me things because you feel like it, send it to this address

And finally, please reach out with what I can do to make this easier/better/or whatever else you feel like telling me.  This is not MY project, this is OUR project.  Our kids connecting is what makes it incredible, so thank you for allowing me to be connected to you and your kids.

Please keep emailing me and more importantly, please keep the connections going - this is what makes the project last.  

All my very best and with a huge big thank you.

Sign up for Global Read Aloud 2015 #GRA15

Yes, I know we just ended the event for 2014 and what a read aloud it was.  From the incredible books, the authors that were involved, the connections that happened, and the amazing projects shared, I am quite overwhelmed with it all.  But....I have been reading some pretty incredible books lately and have already started thinking about 2015.  How can I not when there are so many incredible books to share out there?

So here is your chance to sign up for 2015.  You shouldn't hear from me for a long time; I am busy working behind the scenes trying to secure partnerships/sponsorship and otherwise making the experience even better for all of those that sign up, while teaching my incredible 7th graders and being with my awesome family, oh and reading incredible books of course.  So spread the word and then just relax, we have 11 months to go before we start!
