What's On Your Nightstand?

This summer I have been catching up on a lot of books that have been on my "To Read" list for a while. During the school year I read alot, but it is usually professional books/articles/blogs/etc. I feel as an educator I can never stop learning and reading is one way to stay abreast on the latest research and trends in education. However, this school year, I am hoping to find more of a balance between professional and pleasure reading.

In order to hold myself accountable, I am planning to participate in a monthly meme sponsored by 5 Minutes for Books called What's On Your Nightstand? On the third Tuesday of each month I plan to post which books I have read, and which books I am planning to read. As time goes on, I hope to include a short review/golden nugget from each book, but for now, I am happy to just get this going....
Books I Have Read Since June:
Unveiled by Francine Rivers

Unspoken by Francine Rivers

The Yada Yada Prayer Group by Neta Jackson

Divine by Karen Kingsbury

The Husband Project by Kathi Lipp

Books I Plan to Read in August:

  • Same Kind of Difference As Me by Ron Hall & Denver Moore
  • The Yada Yada Prayer Group Gets Down by Neta Jackson
  • More Hours in My Day by Emilie Barnes & Sheri Torelli
  • Creating the Best Literacy Block Ever by Maryann Manning, Deborah Camp, Gayle Morrison

Happy Reading!
