It’s that time again! Sometimes I wonder if I was drawn to a career in education simply due to the fact that summer meant a slower pace and a huge pile of books to read! Now that I am mostly an administrator, it means that I don’t get the long teacher time off, but I still the space in which to feel like there is time for uninterrupted yummy reading.
The List (in no particular order):
- Nox (Anne Carson)
- Traveling with Pomegranates (Sue Monk Kidd; Ann Kidd)
- The Alchemist’s Kitchen (Susan Rich)
- Bellocq’s Ophelia (Natasha Tretheway)
- Seven Secrets of the Savvy School Leader (Robert Evans)
- Bullet (Laurell K Hamilton)
- A New Earth (Eckhart Tolle)
- The Female Brain (Louann Brizendine, MD)
- The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo (Stieg Larsson)
- How to Make Money in Stocks (William O’Neill)
- My Dangerous Duke (Gaelen Foley)
- The Artist’s Way (Julia Cameron)
- Fool Moon (Jim Butcher)
- The Plague of Doves (Louise Erdrich)
- Hunger Games (Suzanne Collins)
- Tarot for Writers (Kenner)
- Some Girls: My Life in a Harem (Jillian Lauren)
- Assorted professional development articles (from Educational Leadership, etc)
- Assorted primary sources for developing new lessons for American History class
Reading to my Son:
- Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (JK Rowling)
I linked the first few books because they might not be as well known as some of the others (and most definitely are worth a peek!). As you can see a pretty eclectic mix of books, just the way I like it. And, of course, I have no idea if I will get through all of them, but I know I will try…can’t wait. I am very ready to sink my teeth into Nox tonight!
Happy Reading all!
