My first image for the new year shows one of my goals. I’ll be reading 150 books with and for myself and my students. I gathered a few of the books on my “to-read” list, my computer with my GoodReads account Reading Challenge goal, and a stack of papers to figure out how to use our local library resources for downloading e-books and audiobooks.
I have a hefty reading goal because I saw last semester how my commitment to self-selected reading encouraged serious reading in my students. We are all reading more than ever and being transformed as readers and people by reading many books.
