“Reading is a basic tool in the living of a good life. ” By Joseph Addison

One of my favorite things to do is read. I am always reading two books at a time, a “fun” read and an educational/professional read. I feel it is important to always to continue to learn but just the other day I heard an educator say “I don’t read professional books anymore because I don’t know what else I can learn about my profession.” After being shocked, I pulled up my good reads list and gave her several book titles.

I believe no matter how old you are or what level of education you have, you can always learn and improve your craft. In dedication to this moment and to hopefully help others, I am sharing 5 non-educational books that taught me things about education that I have used in my job and classroom.

  1. Originals: How Non-Conformists Move the World by Adam Grant

  2. Soup: A Recipe to Create a Culture of Greatness by Jon Gordon

  3. Creativity, Inc.: Overcoming the Unseen Forces That Stand in the Way of True Inspiration by Ed Catmull and Amy Wallace

  4. Imagine: How Creativity Works by Jonah Lehrer  


I am always looking for a good read so please share your must read books below.
