I have a little Google Form where students can request books. It’s simple and easy to fill out. Go ahead, take a look!
What’s neat is that students are really using it, and they’re helping me make the Kindle Library better and better.
Here are some of the books that are popular right now:
What’s great is that students are also recommending books to their friends. On the request form, I make sure to ask students why they want me to buy the book for them.
Here are some of the things they’ve written:
- About Rapture and author Lauren Kate: “I want to read more of her books because they’re so interesting. After reading Teardrop, I wanted to read more of her stories.”
- About Diary of a Wimpy Kid: “I like the whole series.”
- About The Battle of the Labyrinth: “It has a lot of action and adventure.”
- About Eleanor & Park: “I heard that it’s relatable to John Green books, and I love MOST of the books he’s written.”
It’s really exciting that the students are becoming avid readers, and they know what they like, and they follow authors and books in series. That’s what adults who read do, too.
What’s also exciting is that because of generous donors, I am able to purchase these books quickly for students. There’s not a big gap between when a student makes a request and when it’s available to them on their Kindle. That’s just one of the reasons that Kindlers, on average, are reading way more their their non-Kindle counterparts.
If you’d like to buy a book for a student, head on over to my students’ Amazon Wishlist or buy an Amazon gift card. There are eight other ways to donate, too. For all of your options, go to the Contribute page! Thank you!
