    @Abram @Charlotte @Dinospumoni @Nina I declare complete and utter failure on the follow through this. I am finding that I’m just too busy to digest such a dense read right now. @Charlotte has expressed the same sentiment. Given that there hasn’t been any posts here, are you all feeling the same way? Perhaps this is a read to take in over a long break – maybe even the winter break.

    @Charlotte and I discussed trying to do a lighter and easier to digest read as a “change up.” Suggestions of books I have read that I feel are easy reads are: Drive by Dan Pink, Mindset by Carol Dweck, Guerrilla Learning by Grace Llewellyn, and anything by Blake Boles. Summerhill too but @Abram already read that one.

    Another option that looks like a fun read is “How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen so Kids Will Talk” – This is the book @Leigh did a workshop on this summer. It has cartoons and looks like a fun read, as well as a helpful one. I think of it now because I had a kind of a crummy day today around my frustration for clean up. Maybe there is a section for “How To Talk So Everyone Will Clean Up Their Messes & Listen So They Will Still Clean Up Their Messes” One can only wish…
