Book Building

Posted by on Sep 17, 2010 in Teach, Work

Summer reading should be engrossing and entertaining. Actually, all reading should be those things, in my opinion. I learn better through stories – the oral tradition clearly has its advantages.

That said, fall reading to me is also about introducing new ideas, and working a little harder for them. My fall list contains many engaging stories, but a few of them will also be “good for me.”

Here’s my current list of fall books, and I’m looking for more. What are you reading?

1. A Novel Bookstore, by Laurence Cosse (Author), Alison Anderson (Translator)

2. What Is the What, by Dave Eggers

3. The Red Pyramid, by Rick Riordan

4. Proust Was a Neuroscientist, by Jonah Lehrer

5. The Revolution Will Not Be Funded: Beyond the Non-Profit Industrial Complex, Edited by INCITE! Women of Color Against Violence

6. Mockingjay, by Suzanne Collins

7. Smalltopia: A Practical Guide to Working for Yourself, by Tammy Strober

    Water for Elephants- just finished it, it was really incredible! Could not put it down. Also, the What is the What is a brilliant book.

    Thanks Steph! I had forgotten about “Water For Elephants,” that’s a great suggestion.
