Readers Gonna Read in 2016!

I've been looking at everyone's Top Nine in 2016 on Instagram and reading resolution posts on Facebook and it really got me thinking about what's important to me. Thankfully, I'm surrounded by wonderful and inspiring friends. A post on Twitter made by my great friend @LiteracyforBigKids was encouraging her followers to sign up for the #SixtyBooks in 2016 Challenge. Instantly, I thought - Oh, no, I can't do that. That's MORE than a book a day! But then, I thought this is important to me. Making time for reading is important and shows my students that reading is important. What can it hurt? What if I read 40 books instead of 60? It's not about the number, it's about the reading.

According to the website the point of the #Sixtybooks pledge is saying... 

“I will make reading
a regular part of my daily routine.”

So, I jumped in and pledged to read 60 Books in 2016. I'm feeling optimistic and I'm going to go in with a long reading wish-list. Are you ready to take the pledge?

Here's a few books, I can't wait to get my hands on in 2016...
