    Did you know Donalyn Miller has a new book out? :D

    I just started reading it and wondered if anyone else was. Where her last book was about promoting passion for reading, this one is how to get them to channel that into a lifelong habit. In a training this summer they told us about a survey of teens that showed only 30% read for fun-I find that sad. I wish they had statistic like that from before the surge of video games and cable, I wonder if it was different then. Anyway, I'm excited to read her ideas.

    I love her books because not only can I find things that apply to my kiddos; it makes me reflect on my own reading habits. She inspired me to jump back into reading again!

    I've read The Book Whisperer, and I loved her ideas about reading. What is the new book called?

    I really enjoyed The Book Whisperer. It was a truly outstanding book that all teachers could benefit from reading. After your post, I put a copy of Reading in the Wild on hold at my library. I'm really looking forward to reading it. Thank you so much for letting me know. :)

    I really think you'll like it readingrules, it's definitely an extension of her first book, the same passion is still there. :)

    I got the chance to attend a conference with her this fall. She previewed a lot of things from her new book. She's a great speaker...very interesting.
