My students continue to choose excellent books to purchase for our classroom’s Kindle library.
And thanks to generous donors, my promise — “If there’s something you want to read, I’ll buy it for you” — still stands.
This week’s books: Sway, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, The Lost Hero, Never Let Me Go, and Fast Food Nation.
One big thing I’m finding out is that students like books more if I’ve read them first. Not all of these titles I recommend — for example, Sway was not my favorite — but my students like to hear my opinion.
Although this isn’t a huge revelation, it’s important to note. It’s also crucial that I continue to read a lot so I can make recommendations.
