I was inspired by Beth over at So the Fish Said to think about the books that I’ve read in recent years. I agree with her that it is a really interesting way to look back at your life and remember certain events. I have posted my own Book List this morning, as I was stuck in my office waiting for grades 3-5 to finish with quarterly assessments. So far I’ve just done what I can remember reading since 2000, which is the year I graduated from high school. I plan to look over my bookshelves tonight when I get home and update the list, and will also try to take an inventory of my bookshelves in New York when I go up this summer. The list will change as I read more and remember more.
This exercise has got me thinking and wondering though: what are you reading? What have you read that has really impacted you? What are your favorites?
