The Books of Summer

For many years, long before Goodreads and Book Crawler,  I have set myself the goals to read around 104 books every year. Two for every week.Some years I come painfully close others nowhere near. The results though is that I read some interesting books. 

A colleague on twitter recently asked me for a list of ‘good education related’ books to read over the summer break. When I looked through my home bookshelves and my iPhone apps I found that the books that I instinctively wanted to recommend  were all book titles that I have had to buy more than once. They are books that are just such a good read, with such a good message, that they become the ones you lend to people, never to be seen again. They stand out from most others in your book collection because you actually notice that you have lost your copy of them when you find yourself wanting to refer to them time after time.

Follow my Goodreads posts for some of these. Let me know if you come across a winner. Note this is my first blog entry for the year. To keep up to date with the education council I have re-branded the the RTCs to PTCs under the categories heading.
