I hear that question several times a year. My stock answer is, "No, but I wish I had the time to do that."
As the Media Specialist I recommend books to children and give book talks, but I wonder:
Last year I made a resolution to read 100 books between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31. I further resolved to add the titles to my Goodreads list and write one sentence about each book.
Amazingly, I accomplished this goal and Goodreads gave me a visual record to share. I also kept a spreadsheet that recorded the number of pages. During a lesson where I had language arts classes setting reading goals for the year, I shared my reading list. The number of books read got a mild reaction, but when they saw the total of 28,005 pages they were astonished.
This year I'm again recording books and reviews on Goodreads. I've created a chart paper record of titles read, dates completed, and number of pages.
Last week, without comment, I displayed it on an easel in the corner of the library in an act of passive-aggressive librarianship.
I've spotted folks examining it, I've heard conversations among students, teachers, students and teachers about those titles and what books they've been reading.
If you're curious to see for yourself, my online record can be found at Mrs. Porter's Goodreads Shelf.
As a teacher librarian in a 6-8 middle school, when I'm not dreaming up all sorts of tactics to get books into my students' hands, I am seeking new ways to harness technology to help them learn.
