Reading about reading
I just bought 3 professional books to read BEFORE school starts! YIKES! What was I thinking? Wouldn’t it be easier to just swim and lay in the sun all day? Or go to the movies? Or claim a stomach virus and lay on the couch and read for “pleasure” all day? But I have got it in my mind that I am going to revamp my teaching of reading this year so I NEED to read these 3 books-I’ve got to read these 3 books-I am GOING to read these 3 books!

SIDENOTE: There is an ongoing book study chat on twitter about this book-in fact the next chat is tomorrow night (Monday, July 25th) at 8pm CST. #cyberpd is the twitter hashtag for this book chat. http://twitter.com/#!/search/%23cyberpd
If I’m not mistaken, I think Patrick Allen himself will be on the chat tomorrow night.
