Confession: I'm a teacher but I really don't love to read. 

[Sorry if I just broke the internet]

It's not because I don't want to learn. Trust me, if learning could be a profession I'd be all over that. I just have a hard time sitting down and finishing books. But as part of my new initiative to really flesh out my creative side I realize that reading is a thing that needs to happen and it needs to be a priority.

Here are the books on my bookshelf wishlist:
  - The Creative Habit by Twyla Tharp.
  - Bread & Wine by Shauna Niequist
  - Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain
  - Show Your Work! by Austin Kleon

As one of my creative role models said in her keynote at WDS this year, "you have to share your idea out loud." 

So here's my idea, internet: I need to read more. 

Wanna help? Keep me accountable. 

I'll commit to read [at least one of these books] and then I'll share my thoughts. Easy enough? Or as my students say, "easy peasy, lemon squeezy." 

What books are on your bookshelf wishlist? Any to recommend?
