At the end of the year, I often get a gift card or two from my students to purchase new books. They know how much I encourage reading and they want me to stay on top of the latest books out there. I'm always thinking about books I want to buy for my new class, but this year, the choices are quite a bit greater than my pocketbook! Part of the reason for that is that I finally listened to my hero, Donalynn Miller, and started a section for graphic novels. But the other is that there just are a lot of good choices.
Have you read any of these? Which ones should I buy?
And the list goes on and on. Have you read any of these books? Are there others which should be on my list?
