Here they are - my summer reading list books - in no particular order:
1. Freakonomics By Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J Dubner
This is one of the books from our shelf that hubs has read and I want to read too. Not sure that I'll get to it, I'm pretty sure that it's at the bottom of my list, but I still plan to read it "some day".
2. Teach With Your Strengths By Liesveld, Miller, & Robison, From Gallup Press
This one comes with an online poll that you take to find out your top five strengths. Hubs took it in leadership academy, which is something all administrator's in the district do. I wanted to see how our top fives compare...and that's a whole other post! Still need to read the book though, to see how my strengths should affect my teaching.
3. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
Yup, Harry Potter. I'm a little behind. Haven't read any of them. I've started this one several times and can't seem to get into it. But that doesn't stop me from trying.
4. Less of a Stranger By Nora Roberts
Because sometimes all I want is a chic flick on paper. Enough said.
5. The Shop on Blossom Street By Debbie Macomber
More chic flick in a paperback. I'm reading this one right now. It's a good story. Intertwines three women's lives. Girl power and all of that. Good so far.
6. Winds of War By Herman Wouk, Copyright 1971.
I believe my copy is from 1971. It has a red cover. It's my dad's. He gave it to me when I was scrounging their shelves for something to read (about 9 years ago!). I've never read it, but still intend to. I think he still thinks I "borrowed" this book. It's 888 pages and definitely not a chic flick book - two reasons I think I've put off reading it.
7. How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk
Borrowed this from my sister. She liked it a lot and read it with her husband years ago. Supposedly good marriage advice/tips.
