The Kindle Library reaches 450 titles

favicon One powerful part of the Kindle Classroom Project is that it breaks down barriers to reading. If a student wants to read a book, he or she can request it, and because of generous donors, I buy it.

I’m happy to announce that today, the Kindle Library reached 450 titles.

Every day, the Kindle Library grows because students are reading. It’s very exciting. Here are a few of the latest books students have requested and received:

The Cartel 3The Cartel 3
By Ashley Antoinette and JaQuavis Coleman

Requested by Vanessa, Kathleen’s class, San Francisco

“I want to keep reading The Cartel books until there are no more sequels!! I LOVE THE BOOKS!!!”

 

 

Dark AllianceDark Alliance
By Gary Webb

Requested by Nicholas, Kathleen’s class, San Francisco

“I want to read this book because it revolves around the CIA and its involvement in drug syndicates. This topic has always been of interest to me. I also am looking for books that pose more of a challenge and have a higher Lexile level, and this seems like the perfect book to fill that requirement.”

Memoirs of a GeishaMemoirs of a Geisha
By Arthur Golden

Requested by Alasia, Kathleen’s classroom, SF

“I really want to read this book. I saw the cover of it a lot growing up, and I really want to read it now. What sparked my interest was yesterday I was walking by a book store, and I saw the book on sale, but I didn’t have cash. I’m not sure if I’ll ever go back there or not and if the book will still be there. I was hoping I could get it for my Kindle since I just got one from my school.”
