summer reading

As summer winds down I am counting up the books I've read. Usually, I am quite pleased with the number of great books I enjoyed over the summer holidays. This year, with my course taking up a whole month, I am kinda disappointed. But the books I did read were super-dooper!
Here's what I've been reading lately:

Harry Potter- The Deathly Hallows
I read this one in record time. Couldn't put it down... LOVED it!
I sorted myself, one more time, and here's my results... Hufflepuff! HA!

Which Hogwarts house will you be sorted into?

Middlesex (Oprah's latest)
I recently passed this one on and so I can't remember the author.... sorry.
One of the best I've ever read!!! Different but oh so good.

With All Due Respect- Ron Moorish
Mostly about discipline and kids (school setting) but good reminders for parents too! An easy read and has helped to change my thinking in this area.

Hey Nostradamus!- Douglas Copeland
This one Shawn read and gave me to read. Written in four different perspectives. Centred around a school massacre and how it affected each person. Cynical. Sad but still good.

Simple Scrapbooks, Scrapbooks Etc., Creating Keepsakes
Really, any scrapbooking magazine or book I can get my hands on is fair game. LOVE them.

Still to be read... before September 4th....

The Literacy Coach's Desk Reference- Cathy Toll
Seems like an easy read. Not sure I'll love it like her first but it was a "gift"... I'll give it a whirl.

Guiding Writers- Lori Ockzus
Looks amazing... can't wait to get into this one!

Anyone read a good book they'd like to refer?
