12 Books for 2014

Jolanthe, over at Homeschool Creations recently posted her commitment to read 12 nonfiction books in 2014, and I thought it was a wonderful idea! I love to read, but almost always choose fiction (despite the large number of nonfiction books on my Goodreads To-Read shelf!). I think forcing myself to read some more nonfiction will help me grow!

I tried to choose quite a variety in my 12 books.  Since I will be student teaching in a physics classroom this semester, I have included some teaching and science books.

My Twelve Books for 2014
In no particular order:
1.  The Book Whisperer: Awakening the Inner Reader in Every Child by Donalyn Miller
2.  Mind in the Making: The Seven Essential Life Skills Every Child Needs by Ellen Galinsky
3.  Design Make Play by Margaret Honey 
4.  Teach Like a Champion by Doug Lemov
5.  The Five Love Languages of Children by Gary Champan
6.  Real Boys: Rescuing Our Sons from the Myths of Boyhood by William Pollack
7.  Sparks of Genius: The Thirteen Thinking Tools of the World's Most Creative People by Robert S. Root-Bernstein
8.  Eat That Frog!: 21 Great Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Get More Done in Less Time by Brian Tracy
9.  Sink Reflections by Marla Cilley
10.  A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking
11.  Happier at Home: Kiss More, Jump More, Abandon Self-Control, and My Other Experiments in Everyday Life by Gretchen Rubin
12.  Beyond Snapshots: How to Take That Fancy DSLR Camera Off "Auto" and Photograph Your Life Like a Pro by Rachel Devine

What are you reading?  What suggestions do you have?  I'd love to hear!
