Reading List 2011/12

I saw this on another blog and took the much offered advice in the teaching profession – STEAL! (lesson plans, of course). I suppose this is actually a clever way to just brag about what I read, but what I really want is to start conversations about books. Because no one likes to do that. Except teachers.

So here is my reading list ’11. Starting this month.

I just love em.


The Big Sky – A.B. Guthrie (which, I might add, you CANNOT find the original b & w film on Netflix and to buy it on Amazon costs fifty big ones)

The Moon is Down – Steinbeck

The Satanic Verses – Salman Rushdie

The Rubaiyat – Omar Khayyam

The Great Fires – Jack Gilbert

Al Capone Does My Shirts – Gennifer Choldenko

Babbitt – Sinclair Lewis


The Ramayana – Ramesh Menon

Maus I & II – Art Spiegelman


Many German stories and poems, thanks to Frau Strauss
