2018 Reading Goals


4-yr-old Nora     the author, age 4, in front of her mother’s bookshelf


First, last year’s count (my students, amazed at how much I read, made me do this):
I read 52 books
I read 13,373 pages
My shortest book: Tremble, by C.D. Wright (60 pages)
My longest book: The Summer Before the War, by Helen Simonson (481 pages)

Favorite books of 2017:
The Book of Unknown Americans, by Cristina Henriquez
Ways to Disappear, by Idra Novey
Tornado Weather, by Deborah E. Kennedy


This year I have a few interlocking goals:
1. Read 60 books
2. Choose authors of color for 25% of my fiction reading.
3. Read at least 50% women authors
4. Each month, read one book about pedagogy or the teaching profession.

What are your reading goals this year?
