What's On Your Nightstand - October
Eventhough I am a few days late, I just had to post because for the first time I finished everything on my nightstand! Last month I was reading 3 books and I finished them all this month. I have even reviewed two of them and expect to post the third in the next day or two.
This month I am reading -
The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
My assistant principal and I share books all the time. This one came from her with high recommendations.
The Last Queen by C. W. Gortner
The story of Juana of Castile, the last Spanish blood queen of Spain
Vive La Revolution by Mark Steel
A series of anecdotes about the French Revolution. This one is research for my AP European History class.
How to Read Literature Like a Professor by Thomas C. Foster
Stark Raving Bibliophile mentioned this book on her blog this summer and I just had to have it. My hope is it will help me explain literature and its importance better to my students as well as make me a better critical reader.
Hopefully, this time next month I can claim to have finished all these too!
