As I read for our state book award committee, my reading time is pretty much spoken for most of the year. However, I view Winter Break as a time where I can sneak in a few "grown-up" books with less guilt. What would I most like to read? Here it is, my grown-up book wish list:
History Decoded: The 10 Greatest Conspiracies of All Time (Brad Meltzer)
George Washington's Secret Six (Brian Kilmeade and Don Yaeger)
Miracles and Massacres: True and Untold Stories of the Making of America (Glen Beck)
Prodigy and Champion (Marie Lu)
Mary Poppins (P. L. Travers)
The Bully Pulpit (Doris Kearns Goodwin)
Can you tell that I used to teach 8th grade U.S. history prior to becoming a school media specialist? I'll report back after break on which of these I was able to check off the list along with what I actually read.
Wishing you Happy Reading and the time to do it!
