  1. Yes, ma’am! Back to my assigned reading list now. 😉

  2. Katie on said:

    Love it! I think I got most of them…one or two I obviously need to read up on.

  3. Any suggestions for people who’ve already read this lot?!

  4. #8: George returns alone. I’ve had many an upset student who were really mad at me for making them cry. How dare I assign a sad book, but I’m thrilled because they connected with the book.

    • It’s a good thing when a student cries after reading a book. Real connection instead of manipulated by Hollywood drama. Oh, right–we aren’t supposed to make our students cry, are we? 🙂
