Although I am still up to my eyeballs in grading, I am also determined to find some time to read this upcoming weekend. For fun, I am just starting Lauren Myracle’s new novel Shine. Perhaps most well known now because of the controversy over this year’s nominees for the National Book Awards, Shine has been on my to read pile for a while. I’m looking forward to getting started with this one!
Also on my reading list for this weekend is a new book, edited by Scott McLeod and Chris Lehman, called What School Leaders Need to Know about Digital Technologies and Social Media. Full of excellent, short chapters by well known educational and technology leaders, this book looks like it will be a great addition to my bookshelves. I think it will be a natural fit with the Web 2.0 course that I teach at the University of Alberta and it may be a good one to include on our required list of textbooks for the next time the course is offered.
So, that’s what’s on my pile to be read this weekend. What are you reading?
