Welcome to the Back to School Reading Challenge and Wednesday Book Club! We’re reading books to learn new things. This challenge ran from August 1 to September 30, so this is the final post. Be sure to leave a link for your wrap-up, update, or book reviews. And check back next year for more opportunities to learn from books.
We had one book review last week, my review of a journalist’s well-researched book on the current state of drug addiction in America and how we could handle it better on every level, from individuals, the medical establishment, and public policy: Book Review: Clean by David Sheff.
My Update and our Read Along
Of the original eight books I committed to reading, I finished 5. I still want to finish the two book proposal books, but those are more books that you work through rather than read quickly.
One of the 5 books I finished was our Read Along book, How Children Succeed by Paul Tough. Did you read How Children Succeed? What did you think?
