Laughing out loud currently reading: The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared Original pinner was reading. This, I want to read, but haven't yet!
The ultimate book list to get boys hooked on reading.
Made to Stick; excellent professional reading!
The Wee Free Men...a desert island book!
GoodOmens--Pratchett and Gaiman! a must.
If Tim Burton reimagined The Phantom of the Opera, if Jack Finney let his dark side take over, if you rolled the best work of Clive Barker, Peter Straub and Caleb Carr into one, you still would have something that fell far short of Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere. It is a masterful debut novel of darkly hypnotic power, and one of the most absorbing reads to come along in years.
Neverwhere -- love all the scenes underground in London!
50 Best Books for Boys and Young Men. We had boys about the ages of 9-15 in mind when we made this list but I’ve always considered the distinction between adult and young adult literature to be an unfortunate and artificial one. Putting together this list I remembered just how good these books are, and I can’t wait to read them again as a man. Whether you’re 12 or 52, grab one of these books, a bag of cookies, and head out to the tree house.
The Graveyard Book
"What should have shut me down and made me feel “less than” ended up giving me an inflated sense of self." #reading

25 Series to Read if You Love The Hunger Games. I've read Uglies, Peter and the Starcatchers, The Lightning Thief, and Graceling, and they were all really good. I'll have to try some of these others.
Wonderful book! Cory Doctorow is going to visit our school in October! I am so excited.
The Gift of Rain, Tan Twan Eng's first book. Am reading it right now. Love it too though I think I like The Garden of the Evening Mists better. Both are amazing, however!
Comic: The Book of the Future (via New York Times); gotta love it!
Karen Thompson Walker’s The Age of Miracles is a luminous, haunting, and unforgettable debut novel about coming of age set against the backdrop of an utterly altered world. On a seemingly ordinary Saturday in a California suburb, Julia and her family awake to discover, along with the rest of the world, that the rotation of the earth has suddenly begun to slow.
The Age of Miracles book cover; sounds like a good book! haven't read it, so I can't say it's "worth" reading, but let's all check it out.
