mar6 2014 readings horz More books to discuss

Last week was our first week with book discussion on this blog rather than our usual posts from teachers. I didn’t exactly blow the horn to announce them, so this week I’m trying something different, hoping more of you see — and join — the discussions.

I know the discussion here is aimed at inspiring a more specific discussion, but I just thought I’d break the ice.
