Winter is quickly approaching and there's nothing better to keep teachers and students warm than a good book. I usually like to alternate between fiction and nonfiction books. Here's a few that are on my list this winter:

Fiction:
And the Mountains Echoed: A Novel by Khaled Hosseini
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton

Nonfiction:
Creative Confidence by Tom and David Kelley
I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai with Christina Lamb
The Reason I Jump by Naoki Higashida.

Edutopia also has a Winter Reading Pinterest Board Here: http://www.pinterest.com/edutopia/winter-reading-list/

What's on your winter reading list? What are you assigning to your students? Do you have a go-to winter reading list that you send home over the holidays? Feel free to share!

I love Creative Confidence- Tom Kelley was just here speaking about it a few weeks ago- fantastic choice. (The IDEO k-12 resources also rock, BTW)

I'm looking forward to finishing Malcolm Gladwell's David & Goliath; Teaching minds- how cognitive science can save our schools by Roger Schank. In the fun fiction/nonfiction genre, anything by Jen Lancaster makes me laugh and brightens my day. The Tao of Martha was particularly awesome.

The other novels/fiction I've picked up lately have been sort of heavy and dystopian- anybody have something enjoyable that's not necessarily Dan Brown?

"Invent to Learn" (http://www.inventtolearn.com/) by Sylvia Martinez and Gary Stager is at the top of my list! I've started it but haven't had a chance to finish it. It's not a light read - it demands your full attention!

Since I'm into photography, I also have "Understanding Exposure, 3rd Edition: How to Shoot Great Photographs with Any Camera" by Bryan Petersen on my list. (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0817439390/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?i...) I recently got a Nikon D7100 and am amazed at its capabilities!
