So that I can look back and remember what I've read and so that you can hopefully glean something for your reading list, here's what I read in December and January. So much credit is owed to the blog and podcast by "Modern Mrs. Darcy." She has truly kept my to-read list long and stacked with wonderfully engaging tales tailored just to my liking. It's hard not to read when you can't put a book down!
Wow. What an enthralling biography! I cannot say enough about this book! Whatever your views on Johnson, this is well worth the read. Goodwin is a gifted biographer and was the guiding source for the film, "Lincoln." This was simply so so interesting. I LOVE when reality collides with an engaging story!
This was fun. I would tell you how I learned to tame my fly-aways in my hair-do now, but on second thought that doesn't seem poised enough. You'll have to read for yourself, my dear.
The class I teach motivated me to buy this as I thought I could glean some great tips to pass along to my students. Not only did I do that, but I also found some wonderfully applicable ways to improve my own teaching and course design as well. It was quick and beneficial!
And we can't forget this one:
Stay tuned for more reading updates! This was fun!
