One thing I teach my students is that it is important to have a reading plan. We have a place for one in our reading notebooks, but I don’t really care how they accomplish this, the method is up to them.
I always have two stacks of books: One is next to the bed and contains my current reading, the other is on a table at the foot of my bed where I can see it and think about what I want to read next. I bring the pile next to my bed in to the classroom and talk about how I decide what I will read. I show them all the books I’m currently reading–usually a YA book, a non-fiction book, my Bible, and a cookbook.
We just got back from spending the summer in the states and returned with a suitcase and a half of new reading material. Then I show them a photo of the books I have lined up to read for a while.
