I haven’t had enough time to post what I have been reading, so here’s the list:
Bitten by Kelley Armstrong
How Children Fail by John Holt
In his groundbreaking book, John Holt, draws upon his observations of children both in school and at play to identify ways in which our traditional educational system predestines our young people for failure.
Holt argues that children fail primarily “because they are afraid, bored, and confused.” This, combined with misguided teaching strategies and a school environment that is disconnected from reality and “real learning”, results in a school system that kills children’s innate desire to learn.
Stalemate by Iris Johansen
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Killer Dreams comes a terrifying new thriller that will leave you guessing – and gasping – till the final nerve-racking page. The suspense begins with a phone call and leads forensic sculptor Eve Duncan to the trail of a killer even killers fear to face.
Eve Duncan has turned down the job twice already. Her skill and devotion in identifying murder victims and helping bring their killers to justice may be world-renowned. But Eve works exclusively for law enforcement and the families of the innocent, and the man on the other end of the phone is many things – none of them law-abiding or innocent.
Those were the most notable, because other than that, its been trash magazines at work (which has been, ooh, a LOT of my time lately…sometimes 5-6 shifts a week. I am crazy, I know) so I haven’t had much quality reading time! They were all really great reads!
