Here is my list...
1. Here on Earth by Alice Hoffman - I have been reading this one for years, seriously, and it is certainly time to finish it.
2. The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon - a dear student gave me this book as a gift and it is time to read it.
3. Snow Falling on Cedars by David Guterson - sounds good and has been sitting on my shelf too long.
4. Skeletons at the Feast: A Novel by Chris Bohjalian - this is our book club pick for April
5. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Burrows - book club pick for May
6. Reading Lolita in Tehran by Azar Nafisi - book club pick for June
7. The Venetian Betrayal by Steve Berry - one of my favorite authors. I have been wanting to read this for awhile now.
1. Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson - I have been reading this one for months and I really want to finish it!
2. Why Geography Matters by Harm de Blij - background reading for the high school course I teach
3. Beyond the White House by Jimmy Carter - I am a post -Presidency Jimmy Carter fan and I enjoy his writing style.
4. The Book Whisperer by Donalyn Miller - recommeded read on developing the love of reading in children and students, sounds really interesting.
That is a total of 11 books, not many by the standards of most, but considering that I have only finished 3 books in 2009, it is a lot for me. I have lost my reading mojo and really hope this challenge will help me get it back. We shall see......
