My favorite finds from around the web:

What I’m reading this week:

Mindset by Carol Dweck. This is one of those change-your-life books I’ve been meaning to read this for ages.

The Big Rock Candy Mountain by Wallace Stegner. This counts as a “book by a favorite author” for the 2015 Reading Challenge. I’m having a hard time getting into it …

Have a great weekend!

    “The more Rowling enhances and embellishes her Harry Potter universe, the less room she leaves for readers to fill in the gaps with their own imaginations.” Yep.

    I’ve read several articles on Mindset that were in the life-changing category, and the book itself has been on my TBR list forever. Can’t wait to see what you have to say about it!

    I’m a middle school social studies teacher at an international school in istanbul. i have spent the first week of school teaching the students about mindset and identifying ways we can all change ours simply by the words we use. i’m hoping to unpack it more throughout the year. it really is a game-changer. check out the tedx talk ‘the power of belief’. i actually had my 8th graders watch it…

    I had Mindset checked out but I had so many other books to read, I didn’t get to it. Guess I need to check it out again. Thanks for the motivation to get it again.

    I just finished reading Mindset and I loved it. I am a high school teacher and I decided about half way through that I’m going to use “growth mindset” as a theme in my classroom this year. I’m excited to see how it goes.
