Professional Reading: Currently sitting on my desk, or getting driven around in my car.
- But Why Does It Work?, by Susan Jo Russell, Deborah Schifter, Reva Kasman, Virginia Bastable, and Traci Higgins. Picked this one up at NCTM this year & can't wait to read it.
Taking Action, multiple authors. This is actually three books, one each aimed at elementary, middle, and high school. As of April, two of the three are out with the third to be published later this summer. I was able to back-order two of them at NCTM, so looking forward to their arriving. (I couldn't find a link anywhere, so please let me know if I've somehow overlooked it.)
Connecting Arithmetic to Algebra, by Susan Jo Russell, Deborah Schifter, & Virginia Bastable. I suppose I should finish one book by these ladies before picking up another, but so it goes.
Extending Children's Mathematics: Fractions & Decimals, by Susan B. Empson & Linda Levi. I got a recommendation at NCSM to have a look at this book as I try to educate myself more about grade 3-5 mathematics, so it's now in the stack.
Recreational Reading: What's actually sitting on my nightstand, in my Kindle readier, or in my Audible queue
Sunset Park, by Paul Auster. Another used bookstore find. I adore Paul Auster.
Orphan X, by Gregg Hurwitz. Available Jan. 19, 2016. Sounds fabulous.
The Doors of Stone, by Patrick Rothfuss. Does it count as a 'to read' if it there's no official release date yet? Come on, 2017!
The Diviners, by Libba Bray. This just sounds fascinating.
Across the Universe, by Beth Revis. I always have to sneak in some highly reviewed YA.
The Killer Next Door, by Alex Marwood. Sounds interesting, lots of great reviews.
The Weight of Feathers, by Anna-Marie McLemore. Many favorable comparisons to The Night Circus, so yes please.
I Kill The Mockingbird, by Paul Acampora. Now that I've finally read To Kill A Mockingbird and Go Set A Watchman, I can finally read this one.
The Player of Games, by Ian M. Banks. Consider Phlebus was not really my jam, but numerous Ian M. Banks fans have implored me to at least give it one more book, so here we go.
Gravity's Rainbow, by Thomas Pynchon. Oh, man. I am more than a little intimidated by this!
American Psycho, by Bret Easton Ellis. Call it morbid curiosity.
Then, of course, there's the 2017 Classic-A-Month list. (I have a lot to catch up on!)
What else should I be reading?????
